Passion on two wheels!
Aspiring trail warriors, your search for the perfect bike is over: the Aim Pro's stunning design and bold color way is the very definition of passion on two wheels. As you'd expect from its name, the Aim Pro sets the bar high. Details like a very high quality aluminum frame and hydraulic disc brakes help this bike stand out amongst the competition. It promises an extraordinary riding experience, whether you choose the 27.5 or 29er version.
The devil's in the detail. For starters, the 6061 aluminium top and down tubes are extremely light and stiff thanks to our mechanical forming process. Standout touches include internally routed cables and a very neat IS disc mount between the seat and chainstays. Dropout eyelets make a transformation into daily commuter easy. The Agile Ride Geometry is inspired by CUBE´s race bike experience, providing agile and lively handling that's still easy to control: perfect for trail fun and on longer rides.
The Aim Pro is equipped with all sorts of high end goodies - a perfect introduction to disc brake-equipped CUBE mountain bikes. Hydraulic Tektro HDM 285 disc brakes provide safe and powerful stopping even in adverse conditions. The sensitive Suntour XCT suspension fork with 100 mm travel gives maximum comfort and control even on the roughest trails. Meanwhile, the 3x8-speed Shimano transmission shifts reliably and smoothly and Schwalbe Smart Sam tires combine low rolling resistance with stacks of off-road grip. It all makes for a relaxed riding experience, allowing you to achieve maximum performance with minimum fuss.
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.
