Fancy riding the same brand new, race replica enduro bike that's found its way onto winners' podiums in the Enduro World Series? The Stereo 160 C:68 means you can ride the exact same frame, with the same suspension setup and components, as pro team riders like Nico Lau. And who wouldn't want to do that?
The full carbon frame with advanced twin mould technology - including a carbon trail motion rocker bell crank - is record-breakingly light but still brings top drawer qualities to the table. The standover height is lower than before but there's still room for a piggyback shock, while Boost148 chainstays stiffen the rear end. The bombproof four bar linkage system combines extraordinarily efficient trail control kinematics (ETC) with our progressive Agile Trail Geometry (ATG), blending the climbing performance of a marathon racer with the descending prowess of a freerider. 160mm of suspension travel has never been so efficient, whether you're pointed uphill or down.
Highlights wherever you look. The Fox 36 Float Factory HSC is the reference for enduro forks, setting the standard for weight, steering precision and performance. At the rear, a high end Float X Factory shock features the revolutionary EVOL air spring, remote lockout and a custom CUBE tune with smooth Kashima coating for increased sensitivity.
Cube included a Fox Transfer 150mm dropper post, a high end Race Face cockpit and our range-topping CSW EM 3.7 Enduro system wheels with wide, tubeless-ready rims and stiff Boost148 hubs at the rear. It's ready to race. Are you?
Then there's the superb 1x11 Shimano XTR drivetrain and brakeset. With the incredible 11-46T range of the CS-M8000 cassette, adjustable Shadow Plus rear derailleur and XTR trail braking system, XTR continues to set the gold standard for braking and shift quality. No other brake setup can match its stopping power or offers such sensitive modulation.
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.
