Expirience with the CUBE ELITE C:68X RACE

CUBE ELITE C:68X RACE Review A race hardtail as it´s supposed to be: The ELITE C:68X RACE is one of the best-selling carbon hardtails in all of Europe. With lean 9 kg, the ELITE C:68X RACE is among the lightest bikes in this category. The moderate 69 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. All in all, in the on sporty excursions category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry.
