Ready to take your trail riding to the next level? The Sting Hybrid 120 SL is there to give you a helping hand. Designed specifically for female riders - with a brand new frame for 2018 boasting improved handling and to-die-for looks - we didn't hold back on the equipment front. A Shimano XT gear setup with 11 wide-ranging ratios puts every climb within reach, at the push of a button. Powerful Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes will help you keep your speed in check on the way back down. And a Fox 34 Rhythm fork and Float DPS Performance EVOL shock dish out 120mm of rock-swallowing smoothness at each end, so you're always in control. Ride further, higher, faster and more adventurously with the Sting Hybrid 120 SL.
For our engineering team, perfectionism just comes with the job. When they set out to redesign the Sting Hybrid 120 SL for 2018, they started from scratch with a completely reworked front triangle constructed from carbon fibre. Light, stiff, strong and elegant, the oversized down tube is home to both the Intube battery and the Bosch CX drive unit. The battery is protected by a removable splash and dust-proof cover, but you can charge it while it's in position in the frame if you prefer. We fitted Boost hubs front and rear to add extra stiffness and more precise steering, and created clearance to comfortably run 2.6in tyres for extra grip and comfort. Even the shock is protected from rear wheel splash by the seat tube, and we routed cables internally for long-life gear shifting performance and cleaner looks. The whole thing looks so effortlessly sleek, it's easy to forget how much technology we've crammed into it.
