Frame: This is a female-specific frame that doesn't sacrifice performance. The 6061 aluminium chassis with complex, mechanically formed tubes saves weight and is also very stiff for the best efficiency. The attention to detail - like internally routed cables and the neat disc mount slotted between the seat and chainstays - mark this frame out as something special. The short and lowered top tube and Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) create a riding position and handling that's perfectly tuned for the keen rider - well-balance, agile and manoevrable.
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.
