Cube Kathmandu SLX 2023 Bike

Now you can tread a little more lightly on Mother Earth, thanks to the Kathmandu SLX's front light and mudguards made from recycled materials. The elegant frame with Integrated Carrier 3.0 also features a neat, sturdy flat mount kickstand. And, with Shimano XT components and an air-sprung suspension fork, it's got all you need for low-impact, low-carbon travel.

Cycling is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. With the Kathmandu SLX, we've gone the extra mile to use recycled materials wherever possible. So it features a front light that's made from recycled materials, mudguards manufactured from recycled PET and Continental's new Pure Contact tyre made from sustainably sourced natural rubber. It's our way of doing what we can. Shimano's XT components are easy to use and the last word in reliable performance. The comfortable, easy-to-adjust RockShox Paragon Gold air suspension fork makes long days in the saddle a pleasure. And, with the Integrated Carrier 3.0, mudguards, lighting set and kickstand, we like to think we've set a new standard for low-impact, low-carbon travel.

We've taken everything that's good about the Kathmandu and made it even better. So, for example, the reworked Integrated Carrier 3.0 is designed to work seamlessly with our Acid mudguard. We've fitted a flat mount for the rear disc brake - it also accommodates the kickstand - and used Smooth Welding to give the frame joints a tidy, organic appearance. But it's not all about looks. We also equipped the rear end with a thru axle and added a tapered head tube for improved rigidity and steering precision, even when fully laden. With internal cable routing to keep your gear shifts smooth with minimal maintenance, we reckon we've thought of everything. Just don't forget your toothbrush...

Features

Cube's Aluminium Superlite starts with heat-treated 6061 aluminium, which has the qualities - high fatigue resistance, good stiffness, low weight and excellent strength - that are important for a bicycle frame. Then we make it into double butted tubes, to reduce weight without sacrificing any of its strength. The result? Exceptionally light, strong and tough frames.

Smooth Welding isn't easy, but worthwhile things usually aren't. It has two advantages. First, and most obviously, it looks great: one tube seems to almost flow into the other. Second, and at least as importantly, it helps to minimise load peaks on welded areas for better frame strength and durability.

The Integrated Carrier 3.0 is the next level in system integration: from the side, it's hard to tell where the luggage carrier ends and the mudguard begins. But it doesn't just look good, it's also incredibly strong and rigid. With an integrated spring clamp and Cube Rilink ready adaptor for mounting bags and baskets, it transforms your Cube into an adaptable and versatile load carrier.

Our trekking series is designed to take you wherever your curiosity leads you. So, of course, you'll want a comfortable ride. With a natural feeling seated position and handling that's stable and reassuring with or without a load, Trekking Comfort Geometry does exactly what it says no matter how much experience you have of cycling.
