Cube: Aim Hardtail
Fat-tyre adventures begin with a bike that you can rely on – a companion that’ll be with you over every pebble, rock and root, no matter where you explore. We built the Aim with this in mind, using our expertise in aluminium frame building to create a bike with a comfortable ride and intuitive, safe handling. New for 2019, we’ve refined the frame design so that fitting fenders or a rack is quicker, easier, neater and more secure. Reliable components include a Suntour suspension fork and powerful mechanical disc brakes. The result is a bike that’ll inspire you to explore, wherever the trail leads you. And with our Size Split system, there’s a frame size to suit every rider.
Safe, predictable handling is the backbone of any bike. That’s why we started with our renowned compact Agile Ride Geometry, for a perfect blend of lively handling and a relaxed, comfortable ride position. To make sure all your effort is translated into forward progress, we added a cross-ovalised down tube for extra stiffness, made from 6061 aluminium using our Advanced Mechanical Forming process. For 2019 we also redesigned the rear triangle, incoporating new rack and fender mounts to make a conversion into an all-round commuter or tourer quick, easy and incredibly neat. The whole lot is as light and strong as you’d expect from CUBE – it’s passed our rigorous in-house testing in our purpose-designed lab – and is finished off with several layers of paint in a simple but bold colour scheme, to keep it looking good for years to come.
