The Acid 240 Disc is the bike that all youngsters will want. Light, strong and equipped with everything they'll need to help them keep up with their friends and family, it's got all the features that you'll find on our adult mountain bikes. So the brakes are powerful and easy to control hydraulic discs with levers especially designed for smaller hands, offering plenty of power for early trail adventures. There's a Suntour suspension fork to improve comfort and control on rough surfaces, and we fitted a Shimano 7 speed gear system with Velo grip controls and a wide-ranging cassette 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 you'd expect from CUBE. 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 Disc, 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.
