How do you combine mountain goat agility with mountain lion speed? A good start is to ask CUBE engineers to do the seemingly impossible and build a bike that climbs almost as well as it descends. The result is the Stereo 150 29’s elegantly sculpted C:68 carbon frame. The clean lines, rocker cover and trunnion-mount shock are designed to combine efficiency, stability and intuitive handling. Boost 148 rear axle spacing works together with the tapered head tube and oversized down tube to deliver unparalleled steering precision and pedal input. ISCG05 tabs for a chain guide are standard, while short chain stays ensure agile handling and, in combination with the 75.5-degree seat tube, provide efficient climbing. The low standover and head tube specifically designed for a 160mm fork add the confidence, control and precision you need for sure-footed descending. Jack of all trades? We prefer to think it’s master of them all.There was a time when true mountain-taming descending ability came with a side order of uphill sluggishness. It wasn’t that long ago, and it was enough to make a lot of enduro bikes a frustrating handful. But that time is now firmly in the past. Meet the Stereo 150 C:68 TM 29 – an enduro bike that’ll recalibrate your expectations of what’s possible on a mountain bike. Built around a chassis crafted from our premium C:68 carbon, it’s an extraordinarily race-capable all-rounder that’s very nearly as adept at propelling its rider skyward as it is at cashing in gravity credits on the way back down. Short 435mm chain stays, a head tube designed around a 160mm fork and a steep 75.5-degree seat angle for agile handling and efficient climbing are all part of the package. We chose Sram’s amazing 1×12 Eagle transmission for its simplicity, reliability and awesome gear range, and paired it with powerful Sram G2 RSC hydraulic disc brakes with a 200mm front rotor for the ultimate in stopping power. Big-volume, super-grippy Maxxis tyres wrapped around light, strong Newmen Evolution wheels are kept in contact with terra firma thanks to a Fox 36 Float Factory fork up front and Float X2 Factory shock at the rear. Even the Fox Transfer dropper post features a Kashima coating, so you can drop the saddle at the push of a button for better control in super-techy trail situations. But that’s the kind of attention to detail we like to lavish on our bikes, so that you can concentrate on the ride. And with the Stereo 150 C:68 TM 29 you’ll be able to ride every trail, everywhere, faster and smoother.
