The CUBIE 120 is a great way for kids to jump into the world of bikes. It's also stacked with tons of useful details. A lightweight learner bike, the CUBIE 120 is ideal for practicing balance and getting used to riding on two wheels - a perfect starting point for youngsters. It comes in two snazzy finishes, meaning your junior rider's favorite color is sure to be available.
The CUBIE 120 is reduced to the essentials - but every tube bend is thoroughly thought through. The 6061 aluminium chassis is very light and perfectly tailored to children's smaller frames. Low standover allows lots of freedom of movement and safety during their first attempts at riding. The frame - including the seat tube - is finished with smooth edges and corners in order to minimize the risk of getting snagged on something. CUBE have included two seatposts, so the learner bike can 'grow' with your child until it's time to move on to a CUBE bike with pedals.
Less is more - anyone with kids knows how exciting and scary early attempts at riding can be, and how tricky it is to avoid being distracted. Braking? Experience shows that kids this young don't have the finger strength and coordination required to brake safely - the good old foot brake is a better solution at this age. A special handlebar setup - with integrated steering angle limiter - helps prevent accidents caused by trying to steer too enthusiastically. The 12 inch pneumatic tires provide comfort, roll well and allow for fun while learning to balance. Parents are also well catered for, with a carrying handle integrated into the seat for easy transport when the child's adventurous spirit has waned…
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.
