The ideal bike for introducing kids to real off-road fun! Kids get more adventurous as they get older - instead of being limited to the pavement, they may want to venture off-road. That's why the CUBE KID 2 has a simple 7 gear transmission and rim brakes front and rear. The KID 2 is the ideal bike for introducing kids to real off-road fun - parents aren't the only ones who can experience a sense of accomplishment from conquering a tricky trail. The heat-treated 661 aluminium frame has the same quality and durability as a full-size mountain bike and is as light as CUBE´s engineers can make it, thanks to a curved and formed down tube specifically designed for kids. Because CUBE know that accidents can happen while they're pushing their boundaries, they have made the derailleur hanger easily replaceable. Just like a real mountain bike, the frame has V-Brakes front and rear. The KID 2 is essentially a real mountain bike. That's why CUBE have fitted a MTB handlebar and stem combo, for the best possible control. The Shimano transmission with 7 gears is ideal for small kids' hands - they can always find the right gear. And, when the climb becomes too steep, the bailout 34 tooth sprocket can help out. Brake levers are specially designed for small hands, giving smooth control of the V-Brakes and plenty of power for early trail adventures. A power modulator on the front brake prevents over-enthusiastic braking from resulting in an Nose-Wheelie - or worse. 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. 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.
