Light, strong, simple, versatile... and perfectly proportioned for a keen young rider to get the best from it. That's the Reaction 240 SL, our no-compromise junior hardtail built with aspiring racers in mind. Featuring a heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame and matching lightweight aluminium rigid fork, our design team took a minimalist approach to build the lightest, most reliable and most capable kid's mountain bike they could imagine. Mechanical tube forming allowed our engineers to tailor tube shapes for the best combination of strength and weight, whilst a low top tube - and geometry tailored to provide a blend of confidence-inspiring stability and fun-enhancing agility - work together to make the Reaction 240 SL both fun and safe. The powerful V-brakes are easy to control thanks to levers designed for small hands, and a power modulator on the front brake reduces the risk of an unscheduled over-the-bars dismount caused by over-enthusiastic braking. Shimano's slick-shifting SLX 11-speed gears cover an enormous range, putting even the steepest of climbs within reach of a determined youngster. And big-volume, super lightweight folding Schwalbe tyres offer loads of grip and comfort for confidence-inspiring handling in the dirt, whilst wheels with a reduced spoke count save even more weight. Your child will love it and you will too, safe in the knowledge that we've sweated all the details.

We don't believe in cutting corners at CUBE. It's the reason that our junior frames use the same kind of heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes that you'll find in our adult bikes, as well as the same mechanical tube forming process to adjust tube shapes for the best combination of strength and weight. A low top tube - and geometry tailored to provide a blend of confidence-inspiring stability and fun-enhancing rigidity - work together to make the Reaction 240 SL both zippy and safe. Your child will love it and you will too, safe in the knowledge that we've sweated the details. A replaceable derailleur hanger means that little accidents needn't result in a large repair bill, and our engineering team made room for wide tyres for the best in grip, comfort and safety.
