AIM

Color variants

Fat-tyred adventures start with a bike that you can rely on; a companion that'll be with you over every pebble, rock and root. We built the Aim with this in mind, using our expertise in aluminium frame building to create a bike with a comfortable ride and intuitive, safe handling. Then we added a reliable set of components including a comfortable Suntour suspension fork and, new for 2018, powerful mechanical disc brakes. The result is a bike that'll inspire you to explore, wherever the trail leads. And with our Size Split system, there's a frame size to suit every rider.

Details

Safe, predictable handling is the backbone of any bike. That's why we started with our renowned compact Agile Ride Geometry, for a perfect blend of lively handling and a relaxed, comfortable ride position. To make sure that all your effort is translated into forward progress, we added a cross-ovalised down tube for extra stiffness, made from 6061 aluminium using our Advanced Mechanical Forming Process. It's one of many features that makes the Aim frame light, but exceptionally strong. And to really show off the frame's looks - and keep it looking good for many years to come - we finished off with several layers of paint in our simple but bold black 'n' green colour scheme.

      • 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.

      • Aluminium Lite

        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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Frame Safe System

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Easy Mount Kickstand

      • 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.

      • 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Wet Paint Surface

        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.
