For the 2018 Stereo 140 Race 27.5 they went all the way back to the drawing board. With a new carbon frame design and 150mm fork, the only thing that hasn't changed is that this is still the ultimate all mountain machine - light, nimble, and versatile almost beyond your imagination. For this bike the selected Fox's 34 Rhythm fork and Float DPS EVOL shock for front and rear air springs that are easy to set up, easy to adjust and with a performance that'll have you coming back for more, ride after ride. The 2x11 transmission with Race Face chainset means you can easily switch to a 1x11 setup if that's your preference, while strong Answer Atac wheels with a wide 30mm rim are anchored by Shimano's reliable, evergreen Deore hydraulic disc brakes. Add a Race Face cockpit and the only thing that's missing is a rider. Will you step up?
CUBE's engineers love a challenge. So when they told them they had to make the new Stereo 140 even better looking and even better handling, they set to it with a vengeance. The result is one of our most stunning frames yet - a blend of carbon main frame and aluminium rear triangle that's so elegant, you won't believe it offers 140mm of rear wheel travel. Hidden frame pivots, internal cable routing, a shorter rocker and a trunnion mount shock all contribute to the clean looks. But they've not forgotten function, either. The Boost 148 rear end, combined with the massive down tube and tapered head tube all contribute to a super-efficient, super-accurate chassis that goes where you point it, every single time. Short chainstays and a low standover are part of the agile handling, and the geometry is designed to handle both a 150mm fork and extended periods of climbing with ease. Agile all-rounder? You bet.
