Here's a conundrum: what d'you get if you combine the easy rolling of 29er wheels, the rock-swallowing ability of 140mm of suspension, and the low weight and incredible stiffness of a carbon chassis? The answer is our new-for-2017 Stereo 140 C:62 Race 29. With a spec that emphasises reliability and affordability with no compromise, it's the trail bike that's setting new standards for 29ers.
When they set out to develop the Stereo 140 C:62 Race 29 they wanted to keep all the best qualities of the previous version of our mid-travel 29er full susser. So it had to be extremely light, unbelievably stiff and durable enough to stand up to unrelentingly hard use. With access to Twin Mould Monocoque technology and our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) dynamics, achieving these goals was like water off a duck's back to our engineering team. But even that wasn't enough for them. They improved our Agile Ride Geometry by adding a longer top tube and even more standover clearance. And the rear dropouts use the Boost hub standard for better steering precision and improved wheel durability - particularly important when you're searching for the right line on tough singletrack. This is a frame that leaves our competition - and yours - in the dust.
A bike built to be taken to its limits needs components to match. They started with Fox's 34 Rhythm fork and matching DPS rear shock, which combine incredible small bump response with a progressive feel that keen riders will love.
Shimano BR-M506 hydraulic discs take care of bringing everything safely to a stop, while tubeless-ready Fulcrum Red 44 rims shod with grippy Nobby Nic tyres keep you anchored to the trail. And they even fitted a dropper post, so that super-steep shortcut is now rideable…
Then they added Shimano's 11 speed XT transmission, paired with a Race Face Aeffect SL chainset with 29er-specific 34x24 tooth chainring setup.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
Cube optimized their new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. They can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
FOX Customized Setup
Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. They researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
