The Kid 240 Disc is the perfect choice for keen young riders who want to keep up with their friends and parents. Cube gave it all the features of a full-sized bike because, quite rightly, that’s what an aspiring junior mountain biker would expect. So the brakes are powerful and easy to control hydraulic discs with levers especially designed for young hands, offering plenty of power for early trail adventures. The Suntour suspension fork improves comfort and control on rough surfaces. Cube have fitted a Shimano 3×7 speed gear system – with Revo grip controls to make shifting easy for small hands – to bring every hill, up or down, within reach. And, of course, the heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame is built with the same attention to detail that they lavish on all their bikes. With a bike like this, there’s nothing standing in the way of an off-road adventure.
When the Cube engineers set out to design the Kid 240, they began with the same kind of heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes that they use in their adult bikes. The result is a frame that’s every bit as durable as a full-size mountain bike, but still the right weight for a child – and with the correct disc brake mounts for the hydraulic brakes that we’ve fitted. Mechanically formed tubes mean that it’s bang up to date in terms of technology, too. The geometry is tailored to the needs of young CUBE riders, so it’s stable and easily controllable, with a very low top tube to improve confidence and safety. And, because Cube understand that accidents will happen, they even made the derailleur hanger easily replaceable, so a knock or crash needn’t result in an expensive repair.
