Color variants

If you're looking for just the right blend of comfort and performance in a mountain bike, the Access WS EXC will fit the bill very nicely. Featuring our well-regarded Access frame - tweaked and refined for 2019 and with our Size Split system so every rider can find her perfect fit - it also boasts a great selection of components chosen for their performance, ease of use and reliability. For example, the Suntour suspension fork doesn't just improve comfort and control, but also features a remote lockout for bob-free climbing. The wide-ranging Shimano 24 speed transmission puts the right gear for any occasion at your fingertips, while the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes ensure you're always in full control, no matter what the weather throws at you. Contact points are designed specifically for female riders, ensuring the best possible fit and all-day comfort. We like to think we thought of everything, so you don't have to...

Details

For every frame that comes out of our design studios our engineering team has a simple set of goals: great handling, great fit and great performance. Revised and refined for 2019, the Access WS EXC's frame's sleek looks hide an array of neat touches. For example, we've tweaked the rack and mudguard mounting points, improving their looks and ease of use so that you can add the accessories that are just right for you. The dropped top tube gives more standover clearance for improved confidence on tricky trails, and our Compact Agile Ride Geometry puts everything in exactly the right place for the best comfort and control. Combined with the redesigned down tube's stiff, light and strong backbone, it all adds up to a ride position that's perfectly tuned for the keen rider - well-balanced, agile and comfortable. Internal cable routing dramatically even reduces the need for maintenance, with the bonus of complementing the frame's sleek looks. Because who wants to fiddle with their bike, when you could just be riding?

Technology

      • 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.

      • 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 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.

      • 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.

        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.
