ACID

SRP*:

Color variants

Built to dissolve tricky sections of trail quickly and effortlessly, the Acid is a bike that's more than capable of living up to its name. Featuring a frame that borrows extensively from its high-end cousins, it's designed to help you come out on top of any trail challenge. Precise, accurate steering is assured thanks to a tapered steerer tube and smooth, easily adjustable RockShox Recon air fork. Sram's NX 1x12 Eagle transmission works in harmony with the light, stiff and lively triple-butted frame tubes to propel you down the trail, while powerful Shimano MT400 brakes give you the control you need to bring it all safely to a halt. We even incorporated neatly hidden luggage rack mounting points, so your Acid can do double duty as a weekday urban commuter or weekend tourer too. None of this performance comes at the expense of comfort - big-volume Schwalbe tyres and slender seat stays with a 27.2mm seat post see to that. 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

What do you need in a great-handling, versatile hardtail? Well, it needs to be light and stiff for starters. That's why we began with mechanically formed, double-butted 6061 aluminium main frame tubes combined with a tapered head tube. Taken together they form a rigid backbone for the rest of the frame, carefully tailored with our Agile Ride Geometry to build a chassis that's responsive and accurate. Then we took a close look at the luggage carrier and mudguard mounting points, making them even neater than before so that you can add the accessories you need easily and, just as importantly, without ruining the clean lines of your bike. Details, see? They're what make a CUBE.

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.

      • 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

      • 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.

      • 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.

        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.
