With looks borrowed straight from CUBE's mountain bike range and a design tailored specially for young riders, the Cubie 160 is the ideal introduction to the joys of pedal power. Our engineers started with a geometry designed specifically around a child's needs, blending the fun of responsive handling with the safety of stable, predictable steering. Sturdy and lightweight 6061 aluminium tubes build into a structure that's tough enough to stand up to enthusiastic use, but light enough to inspire - and of course, smooth edges and corners wherever possible help minimise the risk of injury. Sensibly proportioned, child-friendly components are designed to last the course, so the rough and tumble of learning to ride won't result in broken dreams. The simplicity of a coaster rear brake, combined with a smooth rim brake controlled by a lever tailored for small hands at the front, means your child can learn how to control their speed as their confidence grows. We've fitted a new alloy crank and a Hebie Chainlooper to keep the transmission safely enclosed, CUBE tyres with lots of grip, a comfortable ride and the rugged looks of a full-size mountain bike, and a motocross-inspired rear mudguard. It's everything a future mountain bike rider could want.
