The Axial WLS Pro doubles as a performance sports bike and a comfortable long distance/ fitness bike – for 2015 with an optimized WLS Geometry for a relaxed yet efficient riding position and a precise 2×11 105 Shimano drive train. This bike has everything the ambitious female road rider could ever need to have a great riding experience on skinny tires.
The double butted 6061 Superlite aluminium frame with cross ovalized down tube, tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket and 3D forged dropouts provides first class stiffness at a very low weight. The comfortable, long distance philosophy of the frame is emphasized by the balanced and compact WLS Geometry, the compliant seat stays and the vibration damping CUBE CSL carbon fork. For very clean looks and a long lasting crisp shifting there’s internal cable routing, exceptional in this class of bikes. New: For 2015 we stretched out the head tube of the Axial WLS frame by 20mm for a more relaxed riding position and noticeably more comfort.
The Shimano 105 drivetrain, with the Compact cranks (50/34) and an 11-speed 11-32 cassette ensures perfect shifting performance with a very wide gearing range. That gives maximum versatility in every terrain, whether you’re just cruising along or pushing hard for a new personal best. For all-weather dependable stopping performance, there are Shimano BR-R561 rim brakes. The exclusive Fulcrum Racing 77 wheels with Continental Grand Sport Race folding bead tires complement the dynamic long distance character of the Axial WLS Pro perfectly.
