Shimano 3x10 components with a Shimano XT rear derailleur are very reliable.

Nice entry components,stiff,rigid,good money spend


maybe too stiff,needs a good set of tyres

Have it for 2years allmost.Did some upgrade like the shiffters,transmision and pedals.Very very happy whit it so far.Been rideing it mostly on pavement and dirt fire roads but also been pushing it hard on 2-3 feet jumps.The acid takes it all very good U can see that its top quality bike.For this money U cant get better frame fork plus equipment like Cube gives on any other brand.The brakes are entry brakes but very very good and if U dont doo serious DH or are over 100kg U are good to goo..Fork solid and will soup in most off your XC rideing,Only problem I found whit it so far is that is maybe a bit too stiff and doesent climb maybe that good.
I have been trying different setups of tyres on it so far it RR from schwalbe preformed very well (fast).Long story short if U need a bike which U will mostly ride on fire roads old dirty trails and pavement whit good gear Cube acid is best buy.
