Product Description

Ride further and faster with less fatigue. The Cube Attain SL is an endurance style road bike that offers a smooth ride with a comfortable yet efficient cycling position that will help you to perform at your best for longer. The Attain SL is ideal for sportives and long-distance rides as well as fitness training and rapid commuting.

Key Features:

  • 6061 T6 aluminium superlight frame offers a comfortable and efficient ride
  • Carbon bladed fork for smoother ride
  • Shimano 105 2x11 speed drivetrain for reliable gear shifting
  • Mechanical disc brakes for consistent all-weather stopping power
  • Compact chainset and 11-34t cassette for a wide gear range
  • Sizes: 47cm, 50cm, 53cm, 56cm, 58cm, 62cm
  • Colour: Black/White
  • The Cube Attain SL is available with 0% APR finance

The Attain SL is the featherweight athlete of the Attain series - and arguably the most versatile, model, too. Featuring genuine race bike technology, it's the ideal choice for fast rides and long training sessions... and racing, of course. With a lively, comfortable ride and surprisingly low weight, expect to find yourself clicking up through the gears and heading to the front of the bunch - it's that inspiring. Shimano 105 gears and rim brakes combine with the frame's superb ergonomics to put you in perfect control on every climb, descent and bend.

We designed this bike with one goal in mind: to make it the ideal all-rounder. On the one hand, the frame's low weight and exceptional torsional rigidity mean it's incredibly efficient and predictable. That's down to the complex profile, mechanically formed down tube, tapered head tube and PressFit bottom bracket shell - which, together, build into an amazingly stiff structure to help translate every pedal revolution into instant forward progress.

On the other hand, our engineers created superbly compliant seat stays to filter out road vibrations at the rear, then specced a shock-absorbing carbon fork to do the same up front. The result is a sublime combination of comfort and speed, making the Attain SL the ideal companion on any road ride. Smooth Welding and internal cable routing combine for sleek looks and reduced maintenance, while lots of clearance for 28c tyres mean you can tackle any road surface in comfort and complete control.

All Tredz bikes are:

  • Fully built & ready to ride
  • Fully checked & tested by Cytech qualified mechanics
  • Available with 0% APR finance (up to 48 months) on any basket over £99
  • UK price match guarantee

Great value.

Positives- great value for under a grand, with Shimano 150 groupset, reasonably light and well built. Negatives.- it was delivered with only one pedal, luckily I had a spare set. Also the tyres are very hard to get on, I took them to a shop to get back on which is no good if your stuck with a puncture at the roadside. Overall great bike for the money.

Great bike

After checking out a few bikes to replace my ageing Giant Defy decided on this bike and I very pleased with my new bike. Would have given a 5 star rating for build quality but for a couple of minor problems. Firstly when putting a water bottle cage on I found that the thread in 1 of the bolt holes in the frame was burred up and I had to tap it out to fit the fixing bolt. Secondly on my 1st ride less than an hour in got a flat tyre, on removing the inner tube I found that it had split, probably a fault when manufactered, also found that the inner tube was the incorrect size for the tyres fitted but not sure if this was the reason for it splitting, I always carry a couple of spare inner tubes with me so not a major problem. Overall I'm very pleased with the bike, good quality components and great to ride.

Great bike and quality components for the price. The stealth design looks modern and cool. Bought as an upgrade and it certainly is that. Very pleased and would definitely recommend.

Road Bike Guide

 

Is a Road Bike Right for Me?

If you’re new to the cycling world, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our road bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

When you’re choosing a road bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


Usage

What road bike is right for you? There are a few different kinds of road bike, and they all have their specialities. We break down their strengths and usage in an easy to read table below.

Type of Road Bike

Usage

Pros

Cons

Sportive Road

Long distance, training, sportive and endurance riding, as well as rough roads.

Comfortable, relaxed geometry is more accessible for riders new to road cycling.

Not as aggressive or stiff, so serious racers may look for a road race bike.

Road Race

Racing and training.

Lightweight, aggressive geometry for most efficient riding position.

Range limited to tarmac roads and cycle paths.

Aero Race

Road and criterium racing.

Aero dynamically efficient and fast. Stiff frames and aggressive geometry.

Heavier than road race bikes.

Flat Bar Road

Training and commuting. Comfortable, fast city riding.

Upright riding position is great for training and city riding.

Limited options of bikes. MTB-like position not great for racing.

Frame Material

The vast majority of road bikes are made from either aluminium alloy or carbon fibre. Alloy bikes can offer higher tier groupsets for a lower price, whereas carbon frames come at a significant premium, but are lighter and give that extra performance advantage.

Aluminium

Aluminium alloy frames
Alloy frames have come a long way recently, using hydroforming and butting to keep the weight low, while keeping stiffness high.

Carbon fibre

Carbon fibre composite frames
Carbon frames have a lighter weight and greater stiffness, while maintaining excellent comfort.


Fork

Road bike forks are made to be lightweight and stiff, giving accurate steering, as well as a comfortable ride. Budget road bikes will have alloy forks, whereas mid-range forks often have mix-material forks, with alloy steerer tubes and carbon fork blades. Carbon bladed forks deliver a more comfortable ride, absorbing road vibrations and flexing slightly in rough roads. Full carbon forks are found on high end road bikes. They are especially lightweight and offer even greater stiffness.


Groupset

A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen. A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifters
  • Front & rear derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette

Road groupsets are supplied by Shimano, SRAM or Campagnolo. Having reliable and fast shifting can make all the difference when pushing hard. The majority of road bikes have double chainring drivetrains, while triple chainring setups are usually only found on low end bikes and touring bikes. Road bikes will have 7-11 speeds in the rear, with higher gears meaning more options for smoother riding.

Road Groupsets

Brakes

Disc Brakes

Disc brakes
Disc brakes offer greater stopping power and modulation. They work as well in wet as dry weather, and don’t require the rims to be replaced periodically. They come at a weight penalty, however.

Calliper Rim Brakes

Calliper rim brakes
Rim brakes are lightweight and easy to maintain. They allow greater aerodynamics for aero road bikes and


Wheels & Tyres

Types of tyres

Road bikes tyres don’t vary as much as mountain bike or even hybrid, but they still make a huge difference to how the bike rides. For a detailed look into road bike tyres, see our guide.

Road tyres have long been offered as either clincher or tubular. Clincher tyres are the standard tyres that fit onto standard rims with a tube holding the air. Tubular tyres are glued to a special tubular rim and are fully encased, doing without a tube.

Tubeless tyres are now a feature of road bikes, delivering a compromise between tubular and clincher tyres. They look the same as clincher tyres, but pair up with special rims to offer a proper seal within the tyres, also doing away with tubes.

Tyre Size

Road tyres are traditionally quite narrow. Nowadays the accepted standard is 25c, but 23c and 28c tyres are very common too. The larger the size tyre, the more comfortable they will be, but they will also be heavier and potentially slower rolling. Sportive and flat bar road bikes will commonly have wider tyres, whereas race and aero road bike will tend towards narrower tyres.
