Exceptionally high quality children's bike!
If there's an aspiring young mountain biker in your family, chances are they're already pushing their boundaries. The CUBE Kid 240 SL will be right there with them, building their skills and confidence as they get faster and bolder out on the trails. The 1x11-speed Shimano SLX gear setup is bang up to date, simple and reliable, giving a wide gear range for any trail scenario. CUBE selected a Suntour air fork with 70 mm of travel, rebound adjustment and a lighter negative spring specifically designed for younger and lighter riders. It's easy to set up and offers noticeably better comfort, grip and control that your keen young racer will love. Finally, CUBE selected 23 mm wide rims and 2.35" Schwalbe tires for their confidence-inspiring grip and comfort. This is, in every sense, a fully featured junior mountain bike with absolutely no compromises. It's ready to rock..
CUBE don't believe in cutting corners at CUBE. It's the reason that their junior frames use the same kind of heat-treated 6061 aluminium that you will find in their adult bikes, as well as the identical mechanical tube forming process to adjust the tube shapes for the best combination of strength and weight. A low top tube - and geometry tailored to provide a blend of confidence-inspiring stability and fun-enhancing agility - work together to make the Kid 240 SL both zippy and safe. Your child will love it and you will too, safe in the knowledge that CUBE have sweated the details. A replaceable derailleur hanger means that little accidents needn't result in a large repair bill, and CUBE's engineering team made room for wide tires for the best in grip, comfort and safety.
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 Safe 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.
