This is the most exclusive version of the next generation Stereo Hybrid 120 - a quantum leap for performance-orientated trail e-MTBS. Then again, if you want to take it easy, you can simply enjoy the superb comfort of this exceptional bike on long rides. The Stereo Hybrid uses our Size-Split system, to either 27.5in or 29in wheels can be used to match your body size and preferences.
CUBE’s approach is simple: maximum performance, no compromise. We’ve built on well-known features - like our much-lauded Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficent Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics - to give our new four pivot 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame a real innovative edge. The new Tuned Drive Position (TDP) integrates the drive unit into the frame better than ever before, enabling us to reduce chainstay length by 20mm and improve agility and overall handling as a result. Boost hubs with 148mm axles keep everything tracking true and straight and a new battery mount means we can now position it inside the frame. The incredibly clean looks are given a boost by running cables internally, protecting them from damage and adding to the bike’s stunning appearance.
No e-MTB has ever been so well designed for the trails. Fox’s newly developed suspension platform - consisting of a 34 Float Fit4 fork up front and Float DPS shock at the rear - gives even smoother performance on the rougest of trails. For the 29er version, a Boost fork is available to improve steering precision even further. The latest Bosch CX drive system - the most powerful currently available - gives a power boost up to an additional 75Nm. Thanks to the high performance 500Wh battery, even epic rides are possible without worrying about range. The SRAM X01 drivetrain with its 11 speed, wide-ranging 10-42 cassette means that you can always find the right gear, even on the steepest of climbs - and Shimano’s new XT brake system will safely scrub off speed on the way back down. The SL’s need for a tough, durable and stiff wheelset is met by using robust DT-Swiss CSW AM Boost wheels shod with Schwalbe’s Hans Dampf and Rock Razor tyre combination. We’ve even included the puncture-resistant Super Gravity Version at the rear, to keep you rolling in the most extreme conditions. And the CUBE dropper post adds the finishing touch, increasing comfort and control in any trail situation.
Agile Trail Geometry
The Agile Trail Geometry carries over the Agile Ride Geometry?s benefits but with more focus on aggressive trail use. This can be achieved through a more compact frame construction with an even lower top tube and improved standover height. The result is more freedom of movement on the bike for the rider and a lower centre of gravity which guarantees agile handling and more riding fun.
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.
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.
