The ideal bike for first trail adventures!
Fat-tired adventures start here. The Aim is CUBE´s dependable aluminium hardtail, boasting a comfortable ride position and durable transmission. It's the ideal starting point for your first adventures off-road.
The cross-ovalized down tube is made from 6061 aluminium using CUBE´s Advanced Mechanical Forming process, creating a very strong but light backbone. Multilayer wet paint brings out the best in the simple but bold black 'n' white colour scheme. It also helps shrug off everyday knocks and scrapes, ensuring your frame will keep its good looks. Compact Agile Ride geometry gives the Aim a perfect blend of lively handling and a relaxed, comfortable ride position.
The Suntour XCT suspension fork is a real highlight, improving ride comfort and safety with 100 mm of coil spring travel. Schwalbe Smart Sam tires combine low rolling resistance with plenty of off-road grip, while Shimano's 3x8-speed transmission components provide reliable gear selection. V-brakes are light and easy to use, bringing the Aim to a halt quickly and safely. CUBE cockpit components and an MTB-specific saddle combine easy control with the ergonomic design and comfort needed for longer rides.
Advanced Mechanical Forming - With the Advanced Mechanical Forming technology CUBE can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by
functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable CUBE to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
Agile Ride Geometry - CUBE ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in CUBE´s series of big wheel bikes. They also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let CUBE achieve the same trail as their 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. CUBE invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tire clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least they kept the BB height the same as on their 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
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.
Easy Mount Kickstand - The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
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.
Integrated Cable Routing - Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
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.
