Jeremy’s World Championship Cube: Components

Girmay’s Cube is equipped with an electronic kit Shimano Dura ICED2 12 speedbut as we’ve seen a lot this season, the crankshaft is 11 speed.
There are no particular secrets, only a need due to the difficulty of finding ingredients, which also affects the Pro’, especially in some relationships.

In the rear gearbox we find a cage with signed oversized rollers CeramicSpeedallowing you to save less watts by reducing friction.

Carbon wheels signed by a German company neomin. This is the SL R.65, which as the name suggests has a 65mm profile. We’ll see if Girmay uses this profile on Sunday or opts for a more versatile and lighter 50mm.
The 65mm version weighs 1,574 grams and has an 18mm internal channel, which is pretty narrow by modern standards.
The tubeless tires are Continental GP5000 S, fitted with liquid-valve and Effetto Mariposa.

To complete the setup, we find the Prologo saddle and integrated ICR carbon stem, which is fitted to the bike. Note, for maximum aerodynamics, the assembly without gaskets and the large length of the stem.

The total weight of a bike with this stand, without pedals, should be approx. 7.4 kg.

Almost identical setup, except for the color of course, is available for purchase with the Litening Aero C: 68X model SL. The price is really competitive, like almost all Cube products, since we are talking about 7,299 euros.
