Cube Reaction GTC 29" Hardtail Bike

Acids are harsh substances capable of dissolving materials. So why call a bike Acid? Cube has got their reasons. Put it this way: Cube's Acid hardtail dissolves tricky trail sections quicker than you'd expect. With its high quality 29" frame, neutral handling and performance-orientated features, it leaves nothing to be desired.

Strong and Durable Aluminium Hardtail Frame

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, or take it easy - whatever you feel like. The frame is disc-specific and features Cube's ultra-durable, multi-layer wet paint finish.

Reliable, Race-ready Components

Cube has selected RockShox's functionally superb Recon Silver air suspension fork with 100mm travel for reliable, predictable and safe steering and bump swallowing. Cube has also gone cutting edge on the transmission front with Shimano's smooth, light 2x11 transmission. The combination of a compact 26-36 tooth chainset and direct mount XT rear derailleur delivers crisp, accurate shifts even under load. Hydraulic Shimano BR M315 disc brakes 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 Cube's Advanced Mechanical Forming technology they can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimise them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. This enables Cube to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
  • Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. They also added the 27.5" wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let them achieve the same trail as their 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly, they shortened the chainstays without compromising the seat angle. Cube invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give them more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least, they kept the BB height 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.
  • Frame Safe System: To protect their high-end aluminium frames from damage, Cube built the Frame Safe 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 uses this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.

Easy Assembly

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
