Kids love racing. The Reaction C:62 Rookie is built to take that enthusiasm, and turn it into trail-devouring speed. Crafted from the same premium C:62 carbon as our adult race bikes, it boasts exactly the same features you'd expect to see on a World Cup athlete's bike. The Manitou Markhor suspension fork is specially tuned for a child's lower weight, for the best possible performance. Sram's NX Eagle 1x12 gears deliver a huge range and precise shifts. And Magura MT Thirty hydraulic disc brakes have all the power needed to bring the tough Answer Atac AM wheels to a halt.
Frame and equipment
Mountain bike racers demand a frame that's light, stiff and responsive. That's exactly what we've built with the Reaction C:62 Rookie, but in miniature. Crafted from the same premium C:62 carbon as our adult bikes, it boasts a tapered head tube and 12mm thru axle at the rear for precise steering and efficient power transfer. Slender seatstays help deliver a comfortable ride, and internal cable routing reduces maintenance downtime while improving shift performance. It's a class act, and a winning combination of features.
For whom is the Cube Reaction C:62 Rookie suitable?
The middle class hardtails offer the right category for the more ambitious bike athlete. Bikes that can withstand any trail, but can still be used variably and do not seem out of place on a leisurely weekend tour. Comfort and suitability for everyday use are not an issue, but if required the bike can also be used according to its actual purpose: Speed, traction, hairpin bends. The high-quality components offer pleasure for a long time and the frame sets used are stable and light. Here you will find premium sports equipment at affordable prices.
The advantages of 27.5 inch tires
27.5 inch wheels are the logical addition to the large 29 inch wheels and the optimum compromise for all smaller riders and trail fanatics. The combination of smoothness and manoeuvrability meets every wish of a biker. More agile than the 29 inch wheels and therefore the optimal choice for off-road driving and hairpin bends that leave you with little reaction time. This category offers the best choice especially for those changing from 26 inch wheels. 27.5 inch combines the best of two worlds and creates bikes that are not restricted in their use. Whether Fully or Hardtail - 27.5 inch is the golden mean and the perfect tyre size for all who want to use their mountain bike according to its purpose.
The advantages of 29 inch tires
29 inch is THE trend of the last few years, which was able to assert itself completely. Initially viewed critically by mountain bike purists and equipped with some teething troubles, the bike industry has recognized the trend and made it the new standard through continuous improvements. The advantage of the 29" tyres is the enormous running smoothness, which brings great advantages and saves power on long tours as well as uphill and downhill. Obstacles are easier to overcome due to the larger circumference of the wheels, and a greater distance is covered by turning the bottom bracket. By improvements and adjustments in the frame construction and the component selection, initial problems with the agility in the Trail and the optics of smaller frames were optimally balanced. Whether fully or hardtail, a 29 will take you far away.
