Description
Cube Acid 29" Hardtail Mountain Bike
Acids can dissolve certain materials easily. Why call a bike Acid? We've got our reasons. Simply put, our Acid hardtail dissolves tricky trail sections quicker than you'd think. With its high quality frame, neutral handling and performance-orientated features, it leaves nothing to be desired.
Frame building technologies are evolving constantly. The Acid's 6061 aluminium frame with mechanically formed top and down tubes, interior cable routing and tidy details like the rear disc mount put it right at the cutting edge. Reworked Agile Ride Geometry gives the Acid the kind of balanced-but-lively handling that means you can go full throttle. The frame is disc-specific and features our very durable, multi-layer wet paint finish.
Manitou's functionally superb M30 air suspension fork with 100mm travel and bar-mounted lockout lends the Acid a touch of exclusivity. It's also particularly light thanks to its aluminium steerer - a feature rarely seen at this price. The 3x10 Shimano Deore transmission with compact crank (40x30x22) and direct mount XT derailleur delivers crisp, accurate shifts even under load. Hydraulic Shimano BR-M615 disc brakes with Servo-Wave Technology bring the Acid to a halt reliably, while the 180mm front rotor is perfect for longer descents. And the CUBE cockpit incorporates Shimano I-Spec, ensuring optimal integration of gear and brake components.

Technologies:
Advanced Mechanical Forming: With their 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 the manufacture of lighter and also stiffer aluminium frames.
Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details resulted. Increased fork offsets allows for the same trail as Cube's 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. A patented construction to mount the front derailleur gives more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least the BB height remains 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: 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.
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 their 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.

great price. I paid considerably more three years ago! great find

Amazing price for a bike with an air fork and Deore groupset! Does it actually come with a kickstand though...

If only I had a spare 500 to spend! Great find

Tempted by this, not sure I need another bike, but can't resist a bargain.

I thought that reading through

Not really going get much better "bang for your buck" for <£500

This or bizango if I could get that for £432

Suitable for offroad too with minimum standard deore, not sure how good the manitou fork will be , it seems rockshox airforks for under £800 bikes is no more

Good bike for the money

Hi I am really interested in this bike. Does it come with no pedals as shown on the site and how are the front forks with servicing and going wrong at all? I won't be doing wild off roading. Thanks

If you read the description you'd know what pedals it comes with

Only XL 21 inch frame in grey left and Better bikes out there for this price range can be found.

The forks on this are poor as are the brakes.

a triple deore setup without guard will eat your pants for breakfast quite literally, my cube has chewed through jeans, trackies and combats, it's appetite is insatiable. yeah you could buy a guard buy everyone knows that guards and street cred are inversely proportional

also new season of bikes are launching so this is a good time in general to bag a bargain on last year's models, good luck all

Deal was listed over a week ago so hence no sizes

Come on then.. give us a link for this "better bike @ £465.49????

nice spec, personally I dont like the look of the skinny top tube.

Looking for another bike after my current Cube frame cracked. Not impressed with Cube after sales to be honest. I've emailed them about this but not even had a reply (other than an 'auto-response')

So I'm going to avoid Cube in the future!

€700 on their Irish site!

Don't think their currency converter is working properly!

Even it its comes with peddles, they are likely to be cheap plastic things (slippery when wet and the bearings will go in no time), so I would look to upgrade them asap, you don't have to go mad, £20+ should get you a decent set.

Not had experience with that fork, but had a RockShox Recon on a Cube (for 4years) and they still work brilliantly, never serviced but kept clean, and hammered plenty of black runs and local XC races.

Nice bike, shame the black one is OOS.

Thnaks for input... Not a fan boy but just like people to back up their comments so thumbs up in that regard
Ghost Kato reviews are poor
Marin Bobcats decent enough
My Wifes got a Norco 7.1 and I like it
The saracen rarely changes year to year and always seems to gets decent reviews



How does this bike compare to a Specialized Rockhopper Sport 29 (2017) priced at £475?

jezzery

This or bizango if I could get that for £432



​I bought a bizango using various discount codes etc a few months ago. Previously had a specialised rock hopper. The bizango is amazing I love it so much
