The perfect companion for women! The CUBE Access WLS is the perfect choice for women who want to experience the joys of off-road riding for themselves. Female-specific geometry means it's responsive and stable, Shimano's 24-speed gears shift reliably and the 1 mm suspension fork adds a dose of comfort. This beautiful bike has everything you need and nothing you don't: just get out and ride! Available in 13.5 and 16 inch frame sizes with 27.5 inch wheels and 17 inch in 29er format. The Access WLS frame's cross ovalised down tube - made from 661 aluminium using CUBE´s Advanced Mechanical Forming process - gives it superb stability and a finely balanced weight/stiffness ratio. The two colour choices are applied as multi-layer wet paint, which makes them extremely durable. Compact Agile Ride Geometry with a low top tube gives the Access WLS stable, neutral handling with a pleasantly relaxed riding position and great maneuverability. The highlight has to be the SR Suntour suspension fork, which increases both comfort and safety with 1 mm of sensitive, supple suspension travel. Schwalbe Smart Sam tires combine low rolling resistance and secure grip for off-road riding. Shimano's 24-speed Shimano components provide reliable performance and flawless shifting in every situation, while the light but powerful V-Brakes bring bike and rider safely to a halt. CUBE aluminium rider contact points and a comfortable MTB-saddle provide the necessary control on the trail as well as comfort for longer rides. Aluminium Lite - 661 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. Advanced Mechanical Forming - With the Advanced Mechanical Forming technology CUBE 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 CUBE to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames. Agile Ride Geometry - CUBE ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in CUBE´s series of big wheel bikes. They 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 CUBE achieve the same trail as their 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. CUBE invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tire clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least they kept the BB height the same as on their 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5. 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. Frame Safe System - To protect CUBE´s 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. 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. Woman Like Series - CUBE´s new WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. The 13.5 and 16" frames have 27.5" wheels, the 17,19 and 21" frames are built as 29ers. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of the CUBE Woman Like Series feature a compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer head tubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the mens models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount. Wet Paint Surface - On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. CUBE use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
