We combined the Axial GTC's renowned handling and long distance performance with road disc brakes to create the Axial WLS GTC Disc. Innovative brake technology, a state-of-the-art carbon frame and exclusive features combine to form an exciting, high performance race bike for women. The Axial GTC SL Disc is a racer for enthusiasts who just want to keep bettering their personal best.
The GTC's carbon frame, precision-manufactured using Twin Mould technology, has a perfect stiffness to weight ratio. Oversized main frame tubes featuring extra-large cross-sections at the head tube, the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and even the quick release axles at front and rear all provide excellent stiffness and very precise steering, while thin seat stays add comfort by aborbing vibrations. Thanks to the new Flat Post Mount standard we've been able to streamline the brake's appearance by integrating it discretely into the chainstay. Performance-orientated, stretched geometry is highly efficient, combining optimum power transmission with lively handling.
Shimano's 2x11 Ultegra groupset - with a wide-ranging 11-32 cassette and compact, 34x50 chainset - is both high performance and versatile. Add Fulcrum's Racing 77 DB wheelset for rapid acceleration, and this is the ideal bike for everything from storming an Alpine pass to duking it out in a local road race. It's official: the Axial WLS GTC has been approved by the UCI. Shimano's BR-R505 hydraulic disc brake system guarantees excellent braking performance regardless of the weather, while the CUBE CSL Race Carbon Disc fork combines superb comfort with a high level of steering precision. The CUBE cockpit, which includes the Wing Race Bar and Performance pro handlebar stem, has been specially designed to fit the female form - as has Selle Italia's X1 Lady saddle.
