The Axial WLS is a well balanced and versatile sports tourer for the athletic female road rider. To make it suitable both for high speed touring and long alpine ascents we equipped this high-quality aluminium frame with women specific geometry and a 3x9 Shimano Sora drive train.
Through features like the double butted 6061 Superlite aluminium frame, oversized down tube, tapered head tube, cross-ovalized Aero Flex seat stays, PressFit bottom bracket, 3D forged drop outs and our CUBE CSL Race Carbon fork, the Axial WLS is not only light, but also very precise and responsive.
Using the special WLS Geometry we put the rider in a relaxed and compact position, which in conjunction with the vibration damping fork and compliant seat stays creates plenty of comfort for long distance riding. The internal cable routing creates a very clean look. New: The frame of the Axial WLS received some revisions for 2015 and now features a 20mm longer head tube for an even more comfortable riding position.
Athletic versatility. The complete Shimano Sora 27-speed drive train and brake system ensures precise shifting and good durability. The special triple Compact cranks (50/39/30) and the 11-32t comfort cassette let you tackle even steep alpine roads with confidence and won't let you down on the flat either.
Another component highlight for this class are the Shimano WH-R501 wheels and Continental Grand Sport tires. For plenty of comfort we treated the Axial WLS to a very ergonomic CUBE alloy cockpit and the CUBE WLS saddle.
