Safety for parents' peace of mind and fun for adventurous kids, all rolled into a single bike. Too good to be true? Not at all. Meet the Ella 240 - a road-safe kid's mountain bike that's as well suited to daily use as it is to occasional trail ride fun with the family at the weekends. Safety features include a dynamo-powered lighting system, so your child can see and be seen without any worry about running out of power. Added functionality comes courtesy of the included luggage carrier, mudguards and kickstand. And of course, the heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame goes through the same rigorous in-house testing process as CUBE's adult bikes, to ensure that it's more than strong and durable enough for the job. That gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your young rider is as safe as they can be on a bike that's been beautifully engineered. It also means it just rides better. Combined with the 21-speed Shimano gear system, Suntour suspension fork and powerful V-brakes, it adds up to performance that young riders will love and safety that parents will appreciate. At CUBE, they reckon you really can have your cake and eat it.
When CUBE's engineers set out to design the Ella 240, they began with the same kind of heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes that CUBE uses in their adult frames. The result is a frame that's every bit as durable as a full-size mountain bike, but with the right weight and proportions for a child. Mechanically formed tubes mean that it's bang up to date in terms of technology, too. The geometry is tailored to the needs of young CUBE riders, so it's stable and easily controllable, with a low top tube to improve confidence and safety. And, because they understand that accidents will happen, they made the derailleur hanger easily replaceable so that a knock or crash needn't result in an expensive repair.
