The Cube Attention - a bike for any purpose
With the Attention, Cube offers its customers a bike in the medium price range, which leaves nothing to be desired in terms of equipment and handling. The often mixed use of modern mountain bikes for commuting, touring and trails naturally presents the manufacturers with difficult tasks. A bike that should cover these areas must be light, robust and manoeuvrable. The Cube Attention series has been a favourite of passionate bikers for years. Since its launch, the bike has been the perfect balance between price and equipment and is an excellent choice for every rider who is looking for serious biking. The option of different frame and wheel sizes makes the perfect bike for everyone. Optics, components, handling and durability are arguments that can be stated for the Cube Attention.
A framework for eternity
Cube forms the 6061 aluminium frame of the Attention with mechanical processes that make the top and bottom tubes of the frame extremely thin and light on the one hand, but also very stable and resistant on the other. Cube's popular "Agile Ride geometry" ensures the perfect sitting position at all times. The balanced sitting position makes it possible to use the Cube Attention as a precise trail machine as well as a comfortable tourer. The accustomed perfect workmanship is particularly evident in the frame. The welds are almost invisible and only at second glance it becomes apparent that it is an aluminium bike. The internal cables and the integrated disc brake mount ensure a clean look and perfect shifting and braking performance in the long term.
The best of Rock Shox and Shimano
Cube consistently completes its approach and provides the Attention with hand-picked components from the competition area. The Rock Shox suspension fork gives the bike the necessary traction at all times and can be locked from the handlebar if necessary. The Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur with 30 gears offers an enormous range of ratios. Both for ascents in the cradlestep, as well as rapid descents with maximum speed, one of the 30 gears always fits perfectly! The attachments, such as front derailleurs and shift levers are at Deore level and harmonize perfectly with the other components. Shimano's hydraulic disc brake stops the almost endless drive at any time on request. With the handy Schwalbe Smart Sam Active tyres, the bike adheres fantastically to the ground throughout. Weighing just over 13 kilograms, the bike is wonderfully light and agile. The choice between the manoeuvrable 27.5 inch wheels and the smooth 29 inch tyres makes almost any application possible. All components and parts are selected by Cube for longevity and performance, so that driving pleasure is maintained for many years.
SL for more comfort and faster trails
Cube offers the "SL" version in the Attention series. The differences are hardly noticeable at first glance, but have a lasting effect on the character of the bike. The SL version relies on the Rock Shox Recon Silver air suspension fork. It reacts even more sensitively and quickly to bumps and shocks and conveys a lot of safety and precision, especially on technically demanding trails. In addition, Cube uses the Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur with only two sprockets and a modified crankset for the Attention SL. Especially for very sporty use and when looking for maximum speed, this ratio is like a turbo. The Attention SL is primarily aimed at particularly sporty riders who focus on trails and speed. The increased comfort of the air suspension fork is also pleasant on a "normal" tour. In our opinion, the small surcharge against the regular Attention is absolutely justified and the bike can withstand any comparison.
Design and optics are clearly oriented to the sporty mountain bikes of the manufacturer. The flat stem and the slim frame sets look chic and aggressive. The two different paintwork options enable a discreet and a bright colour. The multi-layer coating guarantees a perfect appearance for years, even in hard use. The loving details in matching contrasting colours perfectly complete the overall picture. The Cube Attention and the Cube Attention SL always ensure a good performance!
