The acceleration impresses thanks to the solidity through the drivetrain. It’s only on climbs where the Litening doesn’t quite match the flyweight of bikes such as the Trek Émonda, Specialized S-Works Tarmac, or Cervélo R5 Disc, but I’m really splitting hairs here as the SLT is a brilliant all-rounder, but those three are stratospheric in their ability to shine uphill. While the Cube isn’t the most refined or lightest bike, it is great value, and I’d go so far to say it’ll be the best value bike in the whole peloton.
