Fun, safe and versatile – that’s Cube Kid 200 Street in a nutshell. Built to handle the rough-and-tumble of everyday use with the assurance of having passed the tough in-house safety tests, its light, durable, heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame is designed with the same care that Cube put into all its bikes.
That’s why, for example, there’s a replaceable gear hanger – to reduce the chances of a mishap causing an expensive repair. But there’s more to this bike than the frame, because we’ve added smooth-rolling tyres and a host of practical add-on accessories to create a bike that’s perfect for adventurous young riders, wherever their curiosity takes them. The LED lighting system – driven from a hub dynamo, so you never have any worries about batteries running out – is permanently on and built to withstand any weather conditions, so young riders can always see and be seen. Brake levers designed for small hands make it easy to control the V-brakes, while a power modulator at the front helps prevent over-the-bars incidents caused by over-enthusiastic braking. Shimano’s 7-speed gear system is easy-to-use and reliable, giving little legs the range they need to tackle most hills. Carrying belongings is easy thanks to the included cargo rack, and full-length mudguards help keep clothes dry even when the weather isn’t cooperating. And the Kid 200 Street doesn’t even need a wall, tree or fence to stay upright, because we added a built-in kickstand. We reckon we thought of everything. All that’s missing is a young, keen rider.

The Kid 200’s heat-treated 6061 aluminium frame has the same quality and durability as our full-size mountain bikes. It’s also as light as our engineers can reasonably make it, thanks to a curved and formed down tube designed specifically to suit a young rider’s weight. Because we know that accidents can happen when they’re pushing their limits, we’ve made the derailleur hanger easily replaceable so that a crash doesn’t write off the frame. Just like a real mountain bike, there are V-brake bosses front and rear. And a choice of colours means there’s a Kid 200 to suit every budding junior rider.
