Perfectly balanced suspension, 27.5 inch wheels and Shimano's standard-setting XT 2x11 groupset mark the Stereo 140 HPA Race out as a true all-rounder. Throw in the superb chassis from the Stereo 140 HPA 27.5 and you've got a singletrack rocket that'll put a smile on your face every time you ride. Whether your choice of trail is technical alpine singletrack, challenging enduro routes or simply going for a blast after work, the Stereo 140 HPA Race will tackle it all.
A frame only gets the High Performance Aluminium (HPA) tag if it incorporates all the latest technologies. Complex hydroformed, triple butted tubes mean they can achieve an optimum weight/stiffness ratio. Standout technical details include the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and AHX dropouts for the X12 quick release axle. Internal cable routing contributes to the Stereo 140 HPA Race's clean looks. As for perfect handling, that's all down to Agile Trail Geometry - which guarantees a lively but stable feel in any trail riding situation. The short seat tube and low top tube combine to provide extra clearance for better manouevrability and maximum performance out on the trail.
A bike that's designed to be ridden hard needs hard-hitting components. That's why they've specced the superlight Fox 34 Float fork and Fox DPS rear shock for the Stereo Race.
Standard spec includes an RFR dropper post and Race Face 35 cockpit setup with an incredible stiffness/weight ratio - both clear indications that the HPA Race will take on any challenge you care to throw at it.
No matter how rough the trail becomes, you'll always be in complete control. Shimano's XT 2x11 transmission - with the flawless shifting you'd expect and a wide gear range connected with flawlessly smooth shifts - helps devour climbs, while powerful XT brakes chew up the descents that follow.
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.
