The Reaction Hybrid Rookie takes all the race-inspired handling and performance of our adult Reaction bikes, and repackages it for keen junior riders. Powered by Bosch's third-generation Performance drive unit, there's plenty of juice to help your youngster keep up on longer family rides. Smooth-shifting, wide-ranging Shimano Deore 10-speed gears are easy to use, and they're backed by powerful Magura MT Thirty hydraulic disc brakes for safe stopping. There's a Suntour air suspension fork to help smooth the trail, and 2.25in tyres for grip and comfort. Just add a spirit of adventure, and go!
Frame and equipment
We use the same technologies and frame construction techniques with the Reaction Hybrid Rookie as we do with the adult bikes that inspired it. For example, the gravity cast downtube and 1.5in headtube create a stiff backbone for a bike that, let's be honest, is going to be ridden with healthy enthusiasm. Internally routed cables keep gears shifting smoothly with minimal maintenance, and there's even provision for a simple upgrade to a dropper post for added confidence out on the trail. Feed their sense of adventure - and see the positive reaction.
For whom is the Cube Reaction Hybrid Rookie SL 400 suitable?
For the sporty electric biker. E-bikes have long since overcome their formerly bad reputation. Meanwhile also top athletes use these bikes in order to be able to ride a trail during training, which you might not have climbed without support. The usual sporty, but robust technology, coupled with the latest motor and battery technologies, makes these bikes everyday companions. Whether on an extended tour or a fast ride through the trail - with drive it goes faster and further!
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.
