Travel is good, more travel is better - particularly if it helps you pedal to the top of the climb as easily as the Fritzz 180 HPA SL. For descending, the superbly balanced suspension and an exclusive selection of components deliver limitless riding fun. This is a 180mm long travel Enduro machine with massive reserves - perfect for riders who want to test their limits on the toughest trails, but without sacrificing climbing performance.
The Fritzz is a CUBE institution; a cross-over between enduro and Big Bike. With a brand new 27.5 inch frame, this four pivot machine is anything but restrained. A very low standover ensures maximum manouevrability, while the triple butted 7005 HPA frame with hydroformed tubes is enormously stiff in spite of its low weight. Naturally, we've included details like a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell, Adaptable X12 dropouts and a forged Trail Motion Rocker. Refined Agile Trail Geometry will keep you riding and having fun when others have resorted to carrying their bike.
We've kitted the Fritzz 180 HPA SL out with a smorgasbord of high quality components. Fox Factory kit - including the Float X Adjust shock and superb Fox 36 Float RC2 fork - gives the feeling of a downhill bike. With superior Kashima coating and the latest in suspension technology, they deliver incredibly responsive feel with massive reserves. Fast, precise gear shifts are courtesy of the SRAM XO1 transmission with wide-ranging 10-42 cassette and the exclusive RaceFace Turbin Cinch chainset. Sram's Guide R brakes mean you can scrub off speed with confidence in any situation, while CSW EM 3.7 wheels with extra wide tubeless-ready rims reliably transfer rider inputs to the trail. The Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper post gives the rider plenty of scope to move around on the bike. Combined with the tyre combination of Magic Mary up front and Rock Razor at the rear, it's all you need to tackle any challenge the trail throws up. The Fritzz 180 HPA SL is a dream Super Enduro package.
Agile Trail Geometry
The Agile Trail Geometry carries over the Agile Ride Geometry?s benefits but with more focus on aggressive trail use. This can be achieved through a more compact frame construction with an even lower top tube and improved standover height. The result is more freedom of movement on the bike for the rider and a lower centre of gravity which guarantees agile handling and more riding fun.
Efficient Trail Control
Our Efficient Trail Control series works so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With 27.5 and 29er wheel options our frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The low leverage ratio and linear rate curve makes the bike very sensitive, avoids bobbing and offers full usable travel all the time. Steep seat tube angles and slack head tube angles make these dream machines ready for action on the descent where you can use the full amount of travel to be on the safe side.
FOX Customized Setup
Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. We researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.
The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this ? CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill. This fact is proven by many top test results in leading magazines over the last few years.
Trail Motion Rocker
The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece rocker construction gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
