REACTION C:62

Youth

If your junior mountain biker has caught the racing bug, they'll need a bike to make the best of their evolving skills and fitness. The brand new Reaction C:62 Youth is just that bike. Exceptionally light, equipped for speed and built to the same standards as our adult race bikes, it's got everything that budding cross-country racers need... and nothing that they don't. The beautifully crafted carbon frame is complemented by an air sprung Manitou Markhor fork. Combined with the grip and cushioning of the Schwalbe Racing Ray and Racing Ralph tyres on Answer Attack MA rims, it's an awesome setup for devouring cross-country trails at speed. Sram's NX Eagle drivetrain serves up 12 wide-ranging, perfectly-spaced gears for tackling even the toughest of tracks, and we fitted Magura's custom MT4 hydraulic disc brakes for unmatched stopping power, whatever the conditions. All that's needed for a podium finish is a keen young rider with the will to win...

Details

The Reaction C:62 Youth is the culmination of the CUBE design team's years of experience in building both high performance carbon race bikes, and perfectly proportioned aluminium youth bikes. Crafted from our premium C:62 carbon using our Advanced Twin Mold process, it boasts exactly the same features that you'd expect to see on a World Cup athlete's bike. The tapered head tube, huge down tube cross-section, PressFit Boost bottom bracket and X12 Boost rear axle combine to create an incredibly stiff, precise and efficient frame. At the same time, slender seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seatpost make the most of carbon's inherent vibration damping properties, helping to increase rider comfort. Internal cable routing means your youngster can spend her time riding rather than fiddling with cable maintenance, and we even included routing for an easy dropper post upgrade. Beautiful, light, stiff and strong - just like our adult race bikes, but scaled down to size.

      • Advanced Twin Mold

        This technique uses a complete core to provide the perfect frame form during the lay-up process. As with the Twin Mold technology, precise inserts are used to ensure extra strength at high-stress frame points. This combination offers maximum control over fibre orientations during the lay-up and production process. The Advanced Twin Mold high-tech carbon manufacturing process translates to outstanding product safety and quality together with optimum weight and stiffness characteristics.

      • 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.

      • Boost148

        Boost 148mm technology provides precise handling, on every trail, in every situation. The hub flange moves 3mm towards the outside on both sides. It increases the stiffness of a 27.5? wheel by 14% and, for a 29er wheel, by 21%. The reason is the spoke’s wider support in comparison to the 142mm hubs used previously.

      • 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.

      • X12 Through Axle

        In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Press Fit BB
      • Image of CUBE technology Press Fit BB
      • Press Fit BB

        With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Tapered Steerer

      • Tapered Steerer

        This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.

        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.
