In the transition between a youth bike and an adult MTB, the CUBE 240 has everything the big bikes do. With its suspension fork, powerful V-brakes, 21 gears and geometry tailored for the young rider there is nothing keeping them from enjoying their offroad adventures. For 2015 the frame is even lighter and tougher.
Our heat treated 6061 aluminium frame is completely new - durable like a true mountain bike yet of a weight suitable for children. With mechanically formed tubes the CUBE 240 is definitely future proof. The kids geometry has been designed specifically with young CUBE fans in mind and features a very low top tube for the greatest possible freedom of movement on the bike. And because not every trick always goes well, we included a replaceable derailleur hanger. In true MTB fashion the bike has powerful V-brakes front and back.
The CUBE 240 comes with a comfortable Suntour suspension fork and a 3x7 drive train, operated by the intuitive Revo twist shifters, great for smaller hands. When the climb just won’t end there’s the extra 34t mountain emergency sprocket to help. The V-brakes have special levers, correctly sized and smooth, so that children will have no problems operating them. There’s plenty of stopping power and modulation for those first daring trail adventures, and there’s a special power modulator on the front to avoid locking the front wheel. Smooth rolling and sure-footed traction are gived by the Kenda tires. The lightweight Prowheel triple cranks complete this package.
Frame Safe System
To protect our 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.
Wet Paint Surface
On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
