Sometimes less is more. The Acid 240 SL is a kid's bike pared down to the essentials to make a light, strong and capable mountain bike for the junior riders in your family. With its strong 6061 aluminium frame and light aluminium fork, we've made a virtue out of simplicity. The smooth-shifting Shimano 7 speed gears give your youngsters the range they need to keep up with the grown-ups, while powerful V-Brakes - fitted with a power modulator at the front to minimise the risk of accidents - are equipped with brake levers especially designed for small hands. New width Schwalbe tyres are lighter than before as well as grippy, fast-rolling and comfortable and, of course, the whole thing is designed and built with the same attention to detail that we put into all of our bikes.

When our engineers set out to design the Acid 240, they began with the same kind of heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes that we use in our adult frames. The result is a frame that's every bit as durable as a full-size mountain bike, but with the right weight and proportions for a child. 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 low top tube to improve confidence and safety. And, because we understand that accidents will happen, we made the derailleur hanger easily replaceable so that a knock or crash needn't result in an expensive repair.
