The right Access for off-road adventures!
With the Access WLS EXC, CUBE have created an affordable bike for women who are looking for the perfect blend of performance and comfort on knobbly tires. Because the best possible handling is a priority for CUBE, this bike is available with 27.5in wheels in 13.5 and 16 inch sizes, and with 29er wheels for the 17 and 19 inch frames - so everyone can find the right Access for their off-road adventures. And they're all equipped with all-weather resistant hydraulic disc brakes by Shimano and a reliable selection of components.
This is a female-specific frame that doesn't sacrifice performance. The 6061 aluminium chassis with complex, mechanically formed tubes saves weight and is also very stiff for the best efficiency. The attention to detail - like internally routed cables and the neat disc mount slotted between the seat and chainstays - mark this frame out as something special. The short and lowered top tube and Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) create a riding position and handling that's perfectly tuned for the keen rider - well-balance, agile and maneuverable.
The Access WLS EXC will tackle steep and challenging trails easily and with maximum control, thanks to the smooth SR Suntour XCM Disc suspension fork with 100 mm travel and the powerful Shimano BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes. For 2017 CUBE have upgraded to a Shimano 24-speed transmission, ensuring precise and easy gear selection no matter what the circumstances. Schwalbe's Smart Sam tires steer and stop safely, while CUBE rider contact points put you in complete control of the Access WLS EXC and ensure the best possible comfort, even on longer rides.

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.
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.
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.
Woman Like Series - CUBE´s new WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. The 13.5 and 16" frames have 27.5" wheels, the 17,19 and 21" frames are built as 29ers. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of the CUBE Woman Like Series feature a compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer head tubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the mens models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount.
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.
