ACID

Color variants

Built to dissolve tricky sections of singletrack quickly and effortlessly, the Acid is a bike that's more than capable of living up to its name. With a completely revised frame for 2019, our design team pulled out all the stops to help you come out on top of any trail challenge. From the light, agile and efficient 6061 aluminum chassis to the air sprung RockShox fork, smooth Shimano SLX and XT 2x11 transmission and light, CUBE-built wheelset, it's a trail-ready hardtail that leaves nothing to be desired. And, because it's available in a wide range of sizes spanning both 27.5in and 29er wheel standards, there's an Acid with your name on it. Are you ready to accept the challenge?

Details

Frame building technologies are evolving constantly, but our engineers are at the top of their game. For 2019 the Acid gains a PressFit bottom bracket and tapered head tube, for added pedalling efficiency and steering precision. Mechanically formed top and down tubes with complex profiles form a rigid, strong and light backbone built from 6061 aluminium, while internal cable routing and tidy details like the integrated rear disc mount simply add to the impression that this is a finely crafted frame. Agile Ride Geometry means you can rely on the kind of balanced-but-lively handling for which CUBE is renowned - you can take it easy or go full throttle, whatever floats your boat. And thanks to our durable, mulit-layer paint finish, your Acid will keep its good looks for years to come, no matter how hard you ride.

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
      • Image 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.

  • Icon of CUBE technology Aluminium Lite

      • 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 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.
