Frame: High quality details are scattered throughout the Access WLS Disc's 6061 aluminium frame, from the internally routed cables and the neat disc mount between seat and chainstays to the lowered, shorter top tube and mechanically formed tubeset. It all adds up to an extraordinarily light and stiff, female-specific chassis. We've even integrated a mount for a stand at the dropouts, to make it more suitable for day-to-day use. Agile Ride Geometry, optimised for each wheel size, gives the Access WLS Disc an agile but stable and user-friendly character - unadulterated riding pleasure, whether on the trail or just a longer ride.
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.
