Cube Stereo 160 HPA Race 27.5 2016 Mountain Bike

Description Specification
Completely new, and yet strangely familiar. For both all-mountain and enduro the new-for-2016 Stereo 160 HPA Race is a machine that delivers infinite fun on epic trails. With 160mm, 27.5in wheels and robust components, it’s the perfect setup for any riding situation you care to throw its way - the perfect bike for existing and aspiring enduro riders alike.


This is frame construction on the highest level. We’ve reworked the 7005, hydroformed High Performance Aluminium frame with an even lower standover height, slightly increased reach and a Boost148 hub at the rear for increased stiffness. The result? It’s both lighter and more stable. Naturally, current standards like the PressFit bottom bracket, tapered head tube, internal cable routing and ISCG mountings are all still present and correct. The four pivot rear suspension is aided and abetted by the Trail Motion Rocker linkage and high quality industrial bearings for the ultimate sensitivity. And Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) is responsible for the bike’s characteristic great trail manners.


Performance without compromise. Fox gives this prime example of enduro technology with new suspension components, in the form of a light 34 Float Fit4 fork up front and a Float DPS shock with custom tune at the rear. Powerful braking is delivered by Magura’s reliable four piston MT5 disc brake system. Shimano’s new XT transmission with 11-42 cassette and ShadowPlus rear derailleur keeps the chain exactly where you want it, giving the right gear every time in combination with the Race Face Aeffect chainset. Answer’s Atac EM wheels’ 25mm rim width makes them practically bombproof - and the perfect place to hang Schwalbe’s grippy Hans Dampf and Rock Razor tyres. And of course, there’s a CUBE dropper post with clean internal cable routing, for maximum manouevrability out on the trail.

Efficient Trail Control

Our Efficient Trail Control series works so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With 27.5 and 29er wheel options our frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The low leverage ratio and linear rate curve makes the bike very sensitive, avoids bobbing and offers full usable travel all the time. Steep seat tube angles and slack head tube angles make these dream machines ready for action on the descent where you can use the full amount of travel to be on the safe side.

FOX Customized Setup

Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. We researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.


The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this ? CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill. This fact is proven by many top test results in leading magazines over the last few years.

Integrated Post Mount

The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren?t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there’s potential to save weight in every detail.

Trail Motion Rocker

The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece rocker construction gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
