AIM

SL

The Aim SL is the perfect choice for an early evening ride on your favourite trail - but it's also so much more than that. The range-topping Aim has a high quality, lightweight aluminium chassis with exclusive details and outstanding handling, making it the perfect foundation for riders who demand performance right from the trailhead. It's available in our exclusive Size Split configuration, meaning you can select the perfect frame and wheel size combination for your height.

Frame

Frame: This bike is both light and strong thanks to a high quality 6061 aluminium tube set with complex profile, mechanically formed top and down tubes. Outstandingly well thought out details include the integrated IS disc mount between seat and chainstays, while eyeletted dropouts also make the Aim SL suitable for daily use with a luggage rack. Our widely admired Agile Ride Geometry adds yet another reason to choose this bike: uniquely balanced handling that combines liveliness with comfort.

Components

Features: The 100mm travel Suntour XCM-RL suspension fork features a lockout option to reduce unwanted movement when you're working hard at the pedals. Combined with Shimano's powerful BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes, it allows difficult trails to be mastered safely and in complete control. Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres rolling on durable CUBE ZX20 rims transfer power to the trail via Shimano's Deore and Alivio transmission components - and now upgraded to 9 speed for 2017. CUBE finishing components keep the Aim SL under control, while the CUBE Active 1.1 MTB saddle keeps you comfortable, even on longer rides.

      • Advanced Mechanical Forming

        With our Advanced Mechanical Forming technology we can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable us to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.

      • 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.

        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.

      • Easy Mount Kickstand

        The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.

      • Frame Safe System

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

        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.

        On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
