If you're an ambitious looking for a fast, sporty hardtail that combines the smooth rolling of a 29er with the agility of a 26er look no further than the excellent Cube Ltd Pro 29er! This fantastic bike boasts Cube's Agile Ride Geometry to ensure a nimble ride thanks to its increased fork offset, generous toe clearance, shortened chainstays and increased tyre clearance. The conventional seat angle and head angle are maintained so you still get a natural riding position so you're sure to feel at home on this fantastic machine just as soon as you hit the trail!
At the heart of this high quality hardtail mountain bike is a double butted Aluminium Superlite 6061 frame. Developed to meet the highest requirements it has been heat treated to deliver a frame which is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and non-shearing. What's more, the cross ovalized down tube has been constructed using Cube's Advanced Mechanical forming process for the added durability you'll need for the trai, while the one piece design offers a high load bearing capacity. Stiff, strong and lightweight, the Ltd Pro ticks all the boxes for a highly responsive and incredible ride feel.
The frame of the Cube Ltd Pro hardtail has been especially designed for use with disc brakes with a cold forged brake mount and seatstay brace delivering high rigidity and good brake heat dissipation. This means that the excellent Shimano hydraulic disc brakes work to their very best, offering highly effective stopping power and control whatever the weather conditions.
There are plenty of highlights throughout the Cube Ltd Pro 29er's well thought out specification. The Manitou Marvel 29 TS Air suspension fork boasts adjustable damping and a remote lockout for an efficient ride, while 100mm of plush travel smooths out the rough stuff with ease.The Shimano 3x10 components mean you've got plenty of gearing choice over varying terrain, while the XT rear derailleur offers reliably high performance with precise, smooth shifting time and time again. Another quality feature is the wheelset with Shimano Centerlock hubs, DT Swiss spokes and RFR ZX24 rims fitted with Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires with low rolling resistance and optimum traction.
To complete the outstanding Cube Ltd Pro mountain bike, the innovative Frame Save System protects the frame with its replaceable derailleur hanger to ensure that in the event of a crash the hanger is replaced quickly, easily and hassle free. Finally, the colours and graphics have been acheived with an elocal finish, an anodising chemical treatment surface that not only looks great but also delivers excellent scratch resistance, making the aluminium 1000 times more scratch resistant than ever before!

Aluminium Superlite: Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and non-shearing. Our superlite tubes are doublebutted, giving very light tube-sets with a high level of stiffness.
Agile Ride Geometry: We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our 2012 series of big wheel bikes. This year we add the 650B wheelsize to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26” bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height same as on our 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er.
OnePiece Design: Welded joints in our high-quality aluminum frames are specially finished via this method and create the impresssion of seamless tube design. This generates the visual effect of moulding and ensures high load bearing capacity.
Wet Paint Surface: n polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Anodized Surface: The colour of our aluminium frames with eloxal f inish is achieved by anodising, a chemical surface treatment process. This treatment hardens the surface, making the aluminium 1000times more scratch-resistant than before.
Frame Safe System: To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
