CubCrafters’ Super SportCub is now the Carbon Cub SS.

With the name change, the LSA is appropriately tied to its legacy, the proof-of-concept Carbon Cub first presented at the 2007 Alaska State Aviation Trade Show and Conference, according to CubCrafters officials. The SUPER Sport Cub was the follow-on production model of the Carbon Cub.

Introduced last April, the Super SportCub is the first and only 180 horsepower LSA, company officials said.

CubCrafters General Manager Randy Lervold comments, “The name Carbon Cub speaks to the legacy of the original proof-of-concept model and the innovative design goals it achieved. Thanks to CAD engineering and extensive use of the latest high-tech materials, it has set new standards for airframe strength and weight reduction. Adding the extraordinarily powerful new CC340 engine resulted in the highest performing and fun to fly LSA available.”

In addition to the name change, the Carbon Cub SS now sports several other changes, including exterior carbon fiber trim pieces, spinner and induction tunnel and a freshened interior decor with carbon fiber panels and new colors. Also available is a new “Performance Black” paint scheme.
