The Attain GTC’s frame was developed from the ground up by our engineers to combine class-leading comfort, performance and low weight for endurance riding. The beauty of carbon construction is that, with the right expertise, practically anything is possible. So, for example, the rear end’s slim aero Flex Stays are designed to reduce the impact of road shocks on the rider – a clear advantage on longer rides, increasing comfort and reducing the symptoms of fatigue and tension. The big-volume down tube, combined with the PressFit bottom bracket and tapered head tube, ensures that the rider’s efforts are efficiently converted into forward propulsion, and that every steering impulse is precisely transmitted to the front wheel. As you’d expect, we maintained the frame’s elegant looks by routing cables internally, which also has the benefit of keeping gear shifts cleaner for longer. And less maintenance means more time riding…We designed the Attain GTC Race to be as comfortable as it is fast. That’s why it features aero Flex Stays and a full carbon fork – to make the best possible use of carbon’s natural vibration-damping qualities to improve rider comfort. But speed is important for a race bike, too, so we ensured that the tapered head tube and large cross-section down tube give the frame the torsional rigidity it needs for every watt of your pedal input to be translated into forward progress. Shimano’s superb 105 transmission delivers slick, reliable gear shifts mile after mile, helped by the internally routed cables and their resistance to water and dirt ingress. And powerful hydraulic disc brakes ensure that you have all the control and stopping power you need on even the longest mountain descents, whatever the weather decides to throw at you. With CUBE finishing components it all adds up to a package that’s pure-bred racing snake, built to take on anything from a sportive to an epic hilly ride with your training buddies.
