So light, so accomplished, so unbelievably versatile: the Stereo 160 TM 27.5 blends a full carbon, 27.5 inch, 160mm chassis with an exclusive package of components to creat a bike that's all about putting the fun into the most challenging of trails. For 2018 we've been fine-tuning the spec to provide even more performance and value, too. A Fox 36 Float fork is paired with a Fox DPX2 shock at the rear, providing an air spring platform that's easy to set up and smooth and progressive on even the biggest of hits. SRAM's powerful, lightweight, four piston Code brakes bring the Schwalbe-clad Newmen wheelset to a halt on a dime, while the assured shifting and huge range of the 1x12 SRAM Eagle transmission - with a chainguide for those rough descents - means you'll always be able to find the right gear. This truly is a bike that'll take on anything you throw at it... and put a smile on your face in the process.
With class-leading low weight, the Stereo 160 TM 27.5's carbon frame is undoubtedly a technical masterpiece. But it doesn't just look good - it's also packed full of attention to detail. For starters, we gave it a lower standover height and the option to run a shock with a piggyback reservoir. Then we added Di2 compatibility and the stiffness-enhancing Boost 148 hyb system. Sturdy 7075 aluminium hardware reduces weight even more, and the Trail Rocker linkage is made from carbon to shave even more gram. The whole lot is assembled around our Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) for a lively feel on even the most challenging of trails. Combined with our Efficient Trail Control (ETC), it's your ticket to a technical trail riding experience that you won't believe.
