Are you paying attention?
Good - because this bike will redefine your expectations. With the Attention SL we set out to create a new benchmark for value and performance - a perfectly balanced hardtail blending lively handling and inspiring efficiency. Our designers selected a RockShox air sprung fork, for the ultimate in easy adjustability and smooth, progressive bump munching performance. They added powerful hydraulic disc brakes and grippy Schwalbe tyres, then finished off with the slick shifting reliability of Shimano's Deore and XT 2x10 gears. The result is the ideal trail companion for any off-road riding situation - and, of course, with our Size Split there's an Attention SL to suit every rider.

Look again - the Attention SL's 6061 aluminium frame with mechanically formed top and down tubes is anything but ordinary. We sweated the details on this frame as much as we do on our race-winning machines. Everything from the internal cable routing to the integrated disc mount is designed to improve function without adding unnecessary weight. The multilayer paint means it'll take everyday knocks and scrapes in its stride without losing its good looks. And, as you'd expect from CUBE, our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) means the Attention SL has the poised, balanced yet agile handling that you'd expect from one of our bikes.
Advanced Mechanical Forming
With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
Agile Ride Geometry
We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant,high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
Easy Mount Kickstand
The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Wet Paint Surface
On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Frame Safe System
To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
