REACTION C:62 YOUTH

SRP*:

If your junior mountain biker has caught the racing bug, they'll need a bike to make the most of their evolving skills and fitness. That's why we built the Reaction C:62 Youth - a light, fast, carbon-framed hardtail built to the same standards as our adult race bikes. Crafted from our premium C:62 carbon using our Advanced Twin Mold process, it boasts exactly the same features you'd expect to see on a World Cup athlete's bike. The tapered head tube and 12mm thru rear axle combine to create a stiff, precise frame. At the same time, slender seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seat post make the most of carbon's inherent vibration-damping properties to improve comfort. The result is a bike that's as fast as it is good-looking - so, of course, we needed to give it the best components. The air-sprung Manitou Markhor fork works with wide, grippy Schwalbe tyres to deliver impeccable comfort and control, while Sram's NX Eagle drivetrain serves up 12 wide-ranging, perfectly-spaced gears for tackling even the toughest of tracks. Answer Attack MA rims are light enough for racing but tough enough to stay the course, and Magura MT4 hydraulic disc brakes offer fantastic stopping power in all weathers. All that's needed for a podium finish is a keen young rider with the will to win...

Details

Small, but perfectly formed: that's the Reaction C:62 Youth. Boasting the same frame features and attention to detail as our full-size Reaction C:62 frames, it's the light, stiff and responsive frame that'll make the most of your young racer's energy and enthusiasm. The tapered head tube, short rear end and stiff chain stays ensure that every single watt expended at the pedals goes towards propelling the bike forwards, but slim seat stays and a narrow 27.2mm seat post work with carbon's natural vibration-damping properties to deliver a ride that's surprisingly comfortable, too. Internal cable routing keeps gears shifting cleanly and reliably through the worst trail and weather conditions - and dad won't have to spend his time fiddling with adjustments. It's a full-blown junior racer, and it should give your own junior racer all the excuse they need to pedal their heart out... and have fun.

      • 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

      • 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.
