Sporty and cool all-inclusive Bike!
Should you have to modify a bike you've just bought to make it safer in traffic? No, CUBE don't think so either. It's the reason they developed the CUBE Kid 240 Allroad - the kind of mountain bike that kids have always wanted, with the safety features that allow parents to relax, safe in the knowledge that their young rider is in good hands. The package includes mudguards for wet weather, LED lights so that your child can see and be seen and a front brake power modulator to prevent over-enthusiastic braking resulting in an unintended over-the-bars dismount. On top of all this, there's a Suntour suspension fork and a full 3x7-speed Shimano gear setup. It's everything, in other words, that your young rider needs to conquer roads and trails with the same bike.
Young riders want to ride as fast as their skills allow. That's why CUBE developed the Kid 240 Allroad's frame to be light, strong and confidence-inspiring. Youth-specific geometry with a low top tube provides the perfect blend of agility and stability for any riding scenario, while the mechanically formed, heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes are exactly the same kind you'll find in CUBE's full size frames. They know durability is important, too, which is why they made sure that the derailleur hanger - which can be damaged in a tumble - is easily replaceable. It means that the kind of little accidents that are quite common needn't result in a big repair bill.
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.
