Representing a halfway point between a kid's bike and a full-sized adult's mountain bike, our Acid 240 is the deal choice for growing riders who want to keep up with their friends and parents. We gave it all the features of a 'real' mountain bike because, quite rightly, that's what a keen young rider would expect. So there's a Suntour suspension fork, to improve comfort and control on rough surfaces. We fitted a Shimano 7 speed gear system with Velo grip controls to bring every hill, up or down, within reach. The V-Brakes are powerful and easy to control, thanks to levers that are specially designed for small hands and a power modulator on the front. And, of course, the heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame is built with the same attention to detail that we lavish on every bike that we make. With a bike like this, there's nothing standing in the way of off-road adventures for your little riders...

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.
