Cube Aim SL Mountain Bike Red/Blue (2018)
Up to 12 months interest free
Cube's range-topping Aim has earned the SL tag. With its high quality, lightweight and precise-handling aluminium frame and blend of durable, high performance components, it's the perfect choice for everything from an evening blast on your local trail to longer weekend adventures in the hills. You'll get the best of Cube's world-renowned German engineering in an affordable package. The aluminium frame uses 6061 aluminium alloy which requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness. Designed with Agile Ride Geometry you'll get the perfect feel and ride every time. While internally routed cables will be protected from the elements, keeping your ride in better condition for longer. The 27 speed Shimano transmission, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and easily adjustable Suntour suspension fork with remote lockout are all you need for exploring off the beaten track. And, with Cube's Size Split system, you're sure to be able to find the perfect fit with extra small-medium sizes riding on 27.5" wheels and medium/large to XXL riding on 29" wheels.
This Cube Aim SL is an affordable hardtail mountain bike, but that doesn't mean you can't tear up the trails on this beast. The alloy frame uses the same build techniques as the top end models, which results in a stiff and durable frame. From there Cube have added some really nice components, with a 27-speed Shimano drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and SR Suntour suspension fork. This bike is loads of fun out and about, perfect for exploring with your mates on some local trails.
Agile Ride Geometry
We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant,high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
