When designing the CUBE 240 Street, safety was our foremost concern. We wanted a youth MTB suitable for everyday use as well as being fun to ride trails on. The comprehensive safety package (including the lighting system with SafeStop function) gives a very high level of road safety, while the 3x7 shifting and the suspension fork guarantee optimum function and comfort even for longer rides.
With the heat treated 6061 aluminium frame, we set the groundwork for a great ride experience. The frames geometry is tailored specifically for youth anatomy helping the little ones to focus completely on their surroundings and not on mastering their bikes.
The highlight has to be the colour-matched Suntour suspension fork, which increases both comfort and safety with 100mm of sensitive, supple suspension travel. Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres combine low rolling resistance and secure grip for off-road riding. Shimano’s 21 gear components give reliable performance and flawless shifting in every situation, while the light but powerful V-brakes bring bike and rider safely to a halt. Level 9 aluminium rider contact points and a comfortable CUBE saddle provide the necessary control on the trail as well as comfort for longer rides.
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.
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.
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.
