Lots of travel used to mean ungainly rockers, unsightly pivots and a clunky appearance. Not anymore. The Stereo 140 doesn’t just ride better than many bikes in its class, it’s also one of the most elegant frames we’ve made. Boasting a full carbon front end and carefully crafted aluminium rear triangle, our engineering team went out of their way to make it look as good as it rides. That’s why the pivots are hidden away, the rocker is short and all the cables are routed internally. The Boost 148 rear end, massive down tube and tapered head tube mean super-accurate steering and instant power transfer, while shorter chain stays, a longer top tube and a head angle designed especially for a 150mm fork all add up to the kind of razor-sharp, rock-solid handling you’d expect from CUBE. We even remembered to fit ISCG05 tabs for a chain guide, so you can set it up exactly how you want. Your bike, your way.When we set out to design the Stereo 140 HPC Race we had a simple goal – to build a bike that would redefine expectations of an all-mountain machine. Light, nimble and versatile almost beyond your imagination, its carbon main frame and rocker, combined with an aluminium rear triangle and 150mm fork, is capable of taking you to places you never thought possible. We selected Fox’s 34 Rhythm fork and Float DPS shock for front and rear air springs that are easy to set up, easy to adjust and with a performance that’ll have you coming back for more, ride after ride. Combined with our hidden frame pivots, Agile Trail Geometry and refined kinematics, it’s a setup that’s tough to beat. The Shimano 12-speed SLX and XT transmission shifts cleanly and precisely in any conditions, thanks partly to internally routed cables, whilst tough Fulcrum wheels shod with wide, grippy Schwalbe tyres are anchored by powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with a four-piston calliper up front. We even remembered to fit a dropper post, so you can ride even the steepest of chutes in complete control. The only thing that’s missing is a rider. Will you step up?
