The Cubie 120 is the entry into the world of two-wheeled mobility and features several useful details not often found in balance bikes. The light Cubie 120 is perfect for learning balance and gaining confidence in rolling. For 2016 CUBE offer two fresh colour schemes so that every soon-to-be biker will find something they like.
The Cubie 120 is a very thoughtful yet simple design that perfectly meets the needs of the little ones. The 6061 aluminium frame is very light and ergonomically tailored for the child´s physiology to provide complete freedom of movement while generating confidence from the beginning. To avoid any chances of getting caught on the frame, there are no edges or sharp corners anywhere to be found and even the seat tube is closed underneath. By providing two seat posts of differing lengths with the Cubie 120 it has the ability to grow with the rider until it's time to move on to a true CUBE bicycle.
It takes experience to know what's necessary and what's not. If you have kids, you know how exciting those first riding attempts can be and how hard the kids concentrate to learn. Brakes? CUBE's experience has shown that at an early age children simply don't have the power in their fingers or the coordination skills to safely work brake levers. So CUBE decided to go with the intuitive "footbrake system" instead. The special headset limits steering action to keep the first manoeuvres from getting too radical. The 12" balloon tires provide plenty of comfort and roll along easily. The saddle has an integrated handle for parental assistance and for those times, when the adventuring spirit runs out.
- Aluminium Lite - 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.
- Wet Paint Surface - On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
