Attention All Riders! This is CUBE's Attention - a bike that deserves to be heaped with praise. It's available in 27.5 or 29 inch versions, depending on the frame, which means everybody can find the perfect fit. Building on this high quality foundation, performance-orientated components with 3 gears give riders a hardtail that's capable of tackling anything from long trail rides to shorter, all-out blasts. The high quality 661 aluminium frame - with mechanically formed top and down tubes and internal cable routing - is a perfect example of state-of-the-art bike frame technology. Details like the integrated rear disc mount and clevery crafted head tube area leave no doubt that this is a serious bike. With its proprietary Agile Ride Geometry, the Attention offers the perfect combination of stability and agility, irrespective of how it's ridden. The ride position is designed to blend performance and comfort. The Attention comes with the phenomenal gear range afforded by a 3x1 setup. You're guaranteed a perfect shift every time from the Shimano transmission, which is made up of both Deore and XT components (including Direct Mount XT rear derailleur) and the FC M523 compact crank (4/3/22). Basically, the Attention is perfect for just about any riding scenario. The hydraulic Shimano BR M355 disc brakes always provide ample stopping power. The RockShox XC3 suspension fork with handlebar-mounted lockout and 1 mm travel tames any rooty or rocky trail. Advanced Mechanical Forming - With Cube's Advanced Mechanical Forming technology they 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 them to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames. Agile Ride Geometry - Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Cube 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 them achieve the same trail as their 26in 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. They invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least Cube kept the BB height the same as on their 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
