Exceptionally high quality children's bike!
Kids - are you wondering why dad's bike is lighter than yours? The KID 240 SL will change that! This is a bike designed for enthusiastic riding - perfect for junior mountain bikers. It's an exceptionally high quality children's bike which manages to be both perfect for off-road riding and extremely light - all thanks to a new aluminium frame, air-sprung fork, hydraulic disc brakes and 1x11-speed gear setup.
The heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame with mechanically formed tubes, semi-integrated headset and disc brake mount is the perfect foundation for an exceptional kid's bike. CUBE´s exclusive Kids geometry adapts the KID 240 SL's ride position and handling to the needs of young CUBE riders. The low top tube provides stacks of freedom of movement - and looks great too. And because looks are important to young riders, it's available in a new white´n´red paint finish.
The air-sprung SR Suntour fork with lockout provides great bump sensitivity and can be adjusted to any rider's weight. Unusually for a kid's bike, the KID 240 SL features a 1x11-speed Shimano SLX transmission with an extremely wide range 11-46T cassette- to achieve every climb. Smooth and precise gear shifts are a given. Tektro's smooth and powerful HD-M286 hydraulic disc brakes slow down the KID 240 SL in all weather conditions, safely and accurately. To reduce weight even more, it also has high quality, fast rolling, Kenda Small Block Eight folding tires.
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.
Frame Safe System - To protect CUBE´s 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.
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.
