We don't call a bike ''Action Team'' and paint it in team colours without good reason. The Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team has earned the right to wear this coveted name because we're confident it can meet the stringent demands of enduro riding under the toughest of conditions. Completely revised for 2018, it looks sleeker and handles better than ever before. The seamlessly integrated Bosch CX drive system and Intube battery work in tandem with the SRAM EX1 8 speed transmission, whose wide ranging 11-48T cassette has been specifically designed to match the torque characteristics of the motor - which translates to incredibly smooth gear shifts, even under power. The Fox 36 Float Factory fork and Float DPX2 Factory EVOL shock deliver smooth, trail-taming travel and the Shimano Saint hydraulic disc brakes have the power to bring all this speed safely to a halt. With Race Face cockpit components, a Fox Transfer Factory internal dropper post and light, strong Newmen Evolution SL E.35 wheelset, it's a factory-level setup that you can rely on to deliver mile after mile of trail-taming fun.
Using the latest e-mtb technology and all the experience gained from building performance aluminium bikes over many years, our engineering team pulled out all the stops for the Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team. Key to the frame's success is the surprisingly light, supremely rigid, one piece gravity cast down tube. Not only is it the backbone of the bike, anchoring the tapered head tube at one end and the Bosch CX motor's custom housing at the other, it also discretely houses the Bosch Intube battery. An easily removable, splash and dirt-proof cover protects it from the elements, but you don't need to remove it from the frame to charge it. There's even room for a bottle cage. The rear end continues the elegant-but-stiff theme with a Boost hub and, of course, all the cables are routed internally so that you can keep riding rather than wrenching. Which is exactly what any team rider would expect...
