The Stereo 160 HPA SL created waves when they introduced it, back in 2016. From the high quality HPA frame with 27.5in wheels and 160mm travel, to the hand picked components including Fox suspension and the 2x11 XT transmission, it's all designed to build into a total package that's perfect for taking on any trail - guaranteed.
This HPA four pivot frame is a prime example of the current state-of-the-art in frame building. Triple butted 7005 High Performance Aluminium tubes, put through a hydroforming process, combine with a Boost148x12 rear axle and Trail Motion Rocker linkage to provide a rigid frame structure that's still remarkably light. Their Efficient Trail Control system guarantees the best possible suspension performance, regardless of frame size. And the widely-admired lively steering and stable downhill performance is made possible by our Agile Trail Geometry (ATG)
The SL's suspension is provided by a Fox 34 Float Performance fork and Float DPS shock - the new reference for reliable, enduro-proof suspension and surprisingly low weight. Maximum control and comfort is assured, even on the most difficult and demanding of trails.
Other standout features include the CUBE dropper post and the super-stiff Race Face 35mm cockpit components.
Shimano's 2x11 XT transmission with 36x26T chainset gives the best possible versatility and seamless gear shifts. The Shimano XT disc brakes work with the Hans Dampf / Rock Razor tyre combination and CSW AM 2.7 wheels to deliver flawlessly powerful braking, whatever the trail or weather.
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.
