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 new junior hardtail. Featuring a heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame and matching aluminium fork, our design team took a minimalist approach to build the lightest, most reliable and capable kid's mountain bike they could imagine. The powerful V-Brakes are easy to control, thanks to brake levers designed to accommodate a child's shorter reach - and a power modulator on the front to help reduce the chance of an unscheduled over-the-bars incident. Sram's slick-shifting NX 11 speed gears cover a huge 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.

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 ridigity - 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.
