So light, so accomplished, so versatile. The Stereo 160 C:62 SL blends their latest full carbon, 27.5in, 160mm chassis with an exclusive package of components to create a bike that's all about putting the fun into the most challenging of trails. This is a bike that'll take on anything you throw at it... and put a smile on your face in the process.
With record-breaking low weight, the carbon frame is a technical masterpiece. But it doesn't just look good - it's also packed full of attention to detail. For starters, they gave it a lower standover height and the option to run a shock with a piggyback reservoir. Then they added Di2 compatability and the stiffness-boosting Boost148 hub system. Sturdy 7075 aluminium hardware reduces weight even more, and the Trail Rocker linkage is made from carbon. Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) gives the 27.5 a very lively ride feel in rough terrain, which combines with our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension system to give a riding experience you won't believe.
Simply put, we went all out with the Stereo C:62 SL. We picked the very best suspension components to provide 160mm of plush, well-controlled travel - a Rock Shox Pike RC fork up front and the Fox Float DPS Performance EVOL shock at the rear.
While stiff and tubeless-ready DT Swiss CSW AM 2.7 wheels keep the bike tracking true through the roughest of turns. Grippy, fast-rolling and tubeless-ready Fat Albert tyres combine with the Rock Shox Reverb dropper post to complete this high performance package.
Sram's X1 11 speed transmission gives clean, precise shifts in combination with a Race Face affect SL chainset. The easy modulation and superb power of the Sram Guide R brakes make controlling your speed easy.
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.
