The Stereo Hybrid 140 demonstrated the enormous potential of an all-mountain e-bike. The Stereo Hybrid HPA 160 Race takes it a step further, crossing the threshold to genuine e-enduro. Its High Performance Aluminium (HPA) frame was specially designed from the ground up and, together with its high quality components, guarantees breathtaking riding performance. This is a bike on which the boundary between uphill and down quite simply disappears.
The heart of the Stereo Hybrid 160 is a complex HPA frame. Using state-of-the-art hydroforming technology, triple butted tubing and their Smooth Welding process, the chassis boasts an astonishing stiffness-to-weight ratio as well as stunning good looks. Optimised Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) gives noticeably more room to manouevre and a lower centre of gravity. Thanks to a compact Trail Motion Rocker linkage, there's even room for a shock with piggyback reservoir. The Bosch motor's Tuned Drive Position (TDP) allows for the most compact design possible at the rear, giving more agility on the trail thanks to a wheelbase that's as short as it can be. A 148mm Boost rear hub gives the stiffness that's needed to cope with greater speeds. Other neat touches include the semi-integrated battery, the chain guide incorporated in the new CUBE design cover and clean internal cable routing.
Bosch's CX is capable of taking both bike and rider up any singletrack trail thanks to its astonishing 75Nm of available torque. Together with its 500Wh battery, the Stereo Hybrid 160 Race is your perfect partner for logging some new climbs and descents in record time.
But Enduro isn't just about downhill - and that's why we've fitted the RockShox Yari suspension fork as well as Fox's Float Performance DPS EVOL shock, for great pedalling performance. Answer's robust Atac EM Boost wheels, shod with Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35in tyres in puncture-resistant Super Gravity trim, will look after you on the most challenging of terrain. And CUBE's 150mm Dropper Post adds even more manouevrability to ramp up the fan factor another couple of notches…
Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission with its 11-46 tooth cassette offers an incredibly wide range of gear ratios, making it easy to select the right one for any situation. And no matter how long or steep the descent, Magura's MT5 brakes deliver fade-free power, time after time.
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.
