Cuda Performance was a short-lived range of quality bikes from the Cuda stable. The new CP26 was released in 2018 and was Cuda Performance's multi-purpose offering for children aged around 10 years and over.
With a double-butted aluminium frame and cromoly forks, the CP26 was certainly mixing it up with the other manufacturers of this style and type of bike, but was discontinued in early 2020.
If you can find a secondhand one of these bikes it's a great option. Braking is supplied by Tektro and there is the usual 32T single chainset matched to an 11-32T cassette with 8 gear options. Alloy hubs and rims are shod with Kenda small block tyres to give great grip on a variety of surfaces.
We haven't reviewed this particular bike, but we have put several of the other Cuda bikes to the test, including the drop handlebar Cuda CP700R and the smaller wheeled Cuda CP20R as well as their full-suspension Cuda Impact 24" wheel mountain bike.
