Feel the need for speed, at least some of the time? The Axial should be right up your street. The high quality, lightweight aluminium frame is designed with comfort and efficiency in mind, complemented by a carbon bladed fork to help filter out road vibration. We selected Shimano's Claris groupset for its wide gear range and easy shifting “ and it now features a lighter PressFit bottom bracket and Hollowtech-2 cranks. With Continental Ultra Sport 2 tyres on a CUBE wheelset with DT Swiss spokes and a saddle, stem and handlebar specially selected for female riders, you're fully equipped for any ride, wherever it takes you. A wide range of sizes means every woman can find the right fit, too “ a versatile sports tourer with your name on it.The Axial achieves that delicate balancing act of being both light and stiff, thanks to the use of double butted 6061 aluminium Superlite tubes. Strength and rigidity are important for safety and confidence-inspiring handling, so we included design details like an oversized, cross-ovalised down tube, tapered head tube and 3D forged dropouts. Each of them adds to the Axial's accurate steering and efficient power transfer, which means that you can just get on with enjoying the ride. The carbon fork and cross-ovalised Flex Stays “ combined with a slender 27.2mm seatpost “ are designed to add extra comfort, while we've refined the geometry to ensure a compact but efficient ride position that's particularly suited to longer distances. Internal cable routing complements the frame's svelte looks and reduces the need for fiddly maintenance “ a double win. Because we're sure you'd rather be out riding...
