2011 CUBE SL Cross - Save £300 - Was £929 - Now £629

2011 CUBE SL Cross Team - Save £300 - Was £929 - Now £629

Now – even with a £300 saving the Cube SL Cross Team is still fairly pricey for a hybrid bike but, when you start looking at the specs you soon see why. It’s fantastically equipped with full Shimano Deore gearing and shifters and Shimano 105 hubs, but the real eye-opener is the weight! At less than 10 kilo’s the Cube SL Cross Team is one of the lightest hybrid / commuter / cross bikes you can buy. To put it in perspective, it’s almost 50% lighter than my winter commuter bike which is a Ridgeback Voyage touring bike and the Cube looks even more capable of handling rough roads and light trails. It’s also one of the few cross bike with flat-bars for those who prefer them the drops but still want a ride with that road-bike performance.

How much?

£629 – reduced from £929

Almost 30% discount on this classy cross bike.  I can’t find it for this price anywhere else.

What sizes?

Incredibly, all sizes are still available at the time of writing.

Where from?


Why wouldn’t I want it?

Maybe you’re lucky enough to live where the roads are beautifully maintained, but for those of us who don’t live in Switzerland…
Why would I want it?

You want a fast, classy commuter or ‘do anything except a mountain’ bike from strong German brand with fantastic kit and a great look.  Also you might fancy some touring or long distance rides and need the comfort of a touring bike but with some extra the extra speed of a lightweight road bike.

Any reviews?

Not much in the way of reviews for this specific bike but Cube cycles are German engineered and know for the quality of their cycles (finish, weight etc.)

There’s a blog entry here from a Russian guy who did a lot of research and ended up buying the Cube SL Cross Race and seems delighted with it:
