Cube Aim 27.5 Kids' Hardtail BikeCube’s Aim 27.5 is a reliable aluminium hardtail bike for young fat-tyred adventurers and boasts a comfy ride position and sturdy transmission. It's the perfect starting point for the budding trail rider to head out to their first adventures Stress-Free, Comfy Ride PositionThe 6061 aluminium cross-ovalised downtube was constructed using Cube’s Advanced Mechanical Forming technology, producing a very tough but light backbone. Multilayer wet paint gives the bike a simple, yet bold colour scheme and helps prevent everyday knocks and scrapes, keeping your frame looking good. The compact ARG (Agile Ride Geometry) gives this bike just the right combination of lively handling and a stress-free, comfy ride position Comfort and SafetyThe real highlight of this bike is the Suntour XCT suspension fork which improves riding comfort and safety with it’s100mm of coil spring travel. There is plenty of low rolling resistance and off-road grip thanks to the Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres, while consistent gear selection comes courtesy of Shimano's 3x8 transmission components Light and EasyNo need to worry about not stopping, as the light and easy V-brakes will bring you to a halt swiftly and safely on any terrain. For longer rides, the Cube cockpit components and Cube active MTB-specific saddle combine to give you easy control and comfort Features:Frame: Aluminium Lite, AMF, internal cable routing, easy mount kickstand readyFork: SR Suntour XCT, 100mmHeadset: Cube No 10 semi-integratedStem: Cube performance Pro, 31 8mmHandlebar: Cube rise Trail bar, 660mmGrips: Cube performanceRear Derailleur: Shimano RD-TX800, 8-speedFront Derailleur: Shimano FD-M313-M6, downswing, 31 8mmShifters: Shimano SL-M310, Rapidfire-PlusBrake System: Promax, V-brakeCrankset: Shimano FC-M311, 42x32x22T, 170mmCassette: Shimano CS-HG200, 12-32TChain: KMC 27Rims: Cube SX, 32HFront Hub: Cube AluminiumRear Hub: Cube AluminiumTyres: Schwalbe Smart Sam, active, 2.1"Pedals: Cube PP MTBSaddle: Cube active 1.1Seatpost: Cube performance, 27 2mmSeat Clamp: Cube Varioclose, 31 8mmWeight: 13 5kgTechnologiesAdvanced Mechanical Forming: With this technology, Cube can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimise 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 aluminium frames Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let them 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. They invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tyre 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 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 tube sets with high stiffness Easy Mount Kick Stand: This 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 the high-end 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 the case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced with 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 uses this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight Buy Cube Bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.
