A reliable hardtail with comfortable seating position, efficient 24-speed transmission and extended capabilities thanks to Tektro HDC 330 disc brakes. The sturdy frame is built of Aluminium Lite 6061 and is designed with RFR geometry to deliver a comfortable riding position thanks to a shorter top tube. The cross-ovalized down tube is manufactured using Cube's Advanced Mechanical forming process, designed for high durability The bike also includes clean cable routing, Scape Aluminium stem and handlebar, and Shimano 3x8 components with Acera rear derailleur. The Suntour XCT fork comes with 100mm of travel. Comfort comes from the Schwalbe Black Jack tyres and the Scape Active 8 saddle which is perfect for longer rides.
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.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mikeot85 Good bike for the price - that's good not great
I'm pleased with the bike overall, forks are a bit soft for my liking, even with full preload, but that's probably down to personal preference.
I was a bit disappointed that the crank arm was loose when it arrived, not what I expected from CRC but I suppose everybody makes mistakes once in a while.
Everything on it is good not great, nothing will let you down but nothing really stands out either. I do love the lime and blue paint job
For the price I paid it's a fair all rounder, but I got it in the sale with nearly 100 pound off, I don't think it would have been my first choice if I was paying the full price it should have been as there are better bikes for not much more.

Rated 4 out of 5 Fantastic value versatile bike
This bike has been capable of XC, singletrack and downhill without any modifications; I've added wider bars and a shorter stem for my needs but I realise this wouldn't suit all. Out of the box it's been capable, the brakes are good, the transmission hasn't skipped a beat and I've been very surprised at what I've been able to do with it so far.
I don't know who the review would be useful to with this in mind but if you're looking for a good entry level bike, easy to modify and reliable then I'd definitely recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raigar057 Good Overall, however bike missing part, seat uncomfy, and a few chips of paint off the front fork
Bike in general is good, However the bike is missing the bash guard close to the Front Derailleur, i noted this when i rode the bike and my trousers were ripped/caught by the teeth on the front sprocket.
The seat is very hard and not the most comfortable, a few chips on the paintwork on the front fork but very minor.
Aside from all that the bike works well, all components are set up perfectly, hydraulic brakes are very good excellent stopping power, Suspension absorbs most bumps great .
Overall i am pleased with the bike.
