The 2020 Cube Litening C:68X is for riders who won't compromise. Stiff, light and responsive are entirely indadequate words to describe its performance... blistering comes closer. Ride. Believe.

Here at CUBE, we never rest on our laurels – and the all-new Litening C:68X Race is proof of that. Completely redesigned from the ground up, it represents our bid to redefine what's possible from a race bike. Knowing that at speeds above around 15km/h aero efficiency is more important than weight, and building on the knowledge we'd gained from building our world-beating Aerium bikes, we set out to create a frame that's not just efficient... but aero-efficient. Sophisticated Computer Fluid Dynamics analysis, backed up by extensive wind tunnel testing, allowed our engineers to optimise every single part of the frame to make it as slippery as possible through the air.

Our premium, next-generation C:68X carbon gave them the freedom to sculpt, shape and refine their designs until they were completely happy with the performance. And the result? A seamless structure that integrates the chassis, fork, stem, bar and seat post into a frame that's reduced drag by 30%. Make no mistake, this is game-changing territory. Less drafting, more riding at the front – with power to spare to break away. Fully UCI compliant, we sweated every detail to help you focus on your performance. The low cross-wind effect, integrated headset, clearance for 28mm tyres and lighter head tube and fork crown are all there to ensure you go faster.

With Sram's wireless Force AXS 2x12 transmission, Newmen carbon wheelset and Schwalbe's tubeless-compatible tyres, there's nothing to hold you back. Can you sense a podium position in your sights?

A road race bike needs to be fast. That much is obvious, but how to extract more speed from bike and rider? That was the question our engineering team asked themselves at the beginning of the design process for the brand-new Litening. And the answer? Make the frame as slippery as possible through the air. It's a familiar concept for time trial and triathlon bikes, but not so much for race machines.

The new Litening re-writes the rules by borrowing from our experience building the standard-setting Aerium C:68. Making extensive use of Computer Fluid Dynamics – backed up with wind tunnel testing at every stage of the design and production process – our engineers were able to finesse the frame's design to realise a 30% reduction in drag. In the world of marginal gains, that's enough to make this a genuine breakaway machine. The fully UCI-compliant chassis design integrates frame, fork, stem, handlebar and seat post into a structure that's as efficient through the air as possible. Beautifully crafted from our next generation C:68X carbon, it's even designed to be minimally affected by crosswinds.

The integrated headset features an aero top cap and we were able to reduce the frontal areas of the head tube and fork crown by using disc brakes. It's also highly configurable to suit every race and rider – internal cable routing for Sram and Shimano electronic gears is standard, as is a removable front derailleur mount, and there are multiple bottle positions available. With clearance for tyres up to 28mm and power meter-ready, it's the speed machine you've been looking for to maximise your chances of success. Don't chance it on race day. Ride the Litening – and just go.

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
