Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 Race sets the benchmark for an All-Mountain Hybrid. Whether it's the frame's exceptional balance and low weight, Cubes Agile Ride Geometry's superb trail manners or the reliable, range-topping components they've selected, this is a bike that stands out above the competition. More than that, it's just crying out for epic singletrack adventures.
The CUBE way of doing things is simple: maximum performance, zero compromise. They've built on well-known features - like their much-lauded Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficent Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics - to give their four pivot 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame a real innovative edge. The Tuned Drive Position (TDP) integrates the drive unit into the frame in the best possible position, enabling them to optimise chainstay length and improve agility and overall handling as a result. Boost hubs with 148mm axles keep everything tracking true and straight and an integrated battery mount means they can position it inside the frame to lower the bike's centre of gravity. The incredibly clean looks are given a boost by running cables internally, protecting them from damage and adding to the bike's stunning appearance.
Even the steepest, narrowest singletrack won't catch the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 Race out. The Bosch CX drive delivers up to 75Nm torque for effortless climbing. Throw in the 500Wh battery and the entire system's extraordinary efficiency, and it's easy to see why even epic hilly routes are now a possibility.
Fox's new generation Float DPS Performance EVOL shock and 34 Float Performance fork work together to provide peerless bump-eating smoothness. And robust CUBE EX25 rims on Boost XT hubs with wide, grippy Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres - in puncture-proof Super Gravity form at the rear - provide all rigidity, traction and control you need to tame the toughest of trails.
The enormous gear ratio range of the 11-speed Shimano XT transmission with its 11-46 tooth cassette means you'll always be able to find the right gear. And the XT brake system won't let you down, even on the longest and steepest of mountain descents, thanks to its superb modulation and large 180mm rotors.
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.
This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
