A really lightweight bike won’t win races on its own. But it’s a good starting point. For the junior whippet in your family, the Elite 240 C:62 SLX ticks all the right boxes. Its lightweight carbon frame and fork – perfectly proportioned for smaller riders – are just the beginning. We chose light, tough Newmen wheels and ultra-light Schwalbe Aerothan inner tubes for quick acceleration. Powered them with a CUBE Action Rookies crank and Sram GX 1×11 transmission. And added child-proportioned handlebars, grips and brake levers – connected to powerful Magura MT8 Pro hydraulic discs – for perfect race day control, whatever the conditions. All that’s left is to pedal… and win!
