Any bike in our range has to earn the right to wear the "superlight" SL badge. The Stereo 140 C:62 SL 27.5's low weight credentials include both the exceptionally svelte C:62 full carbon frame and a selection of superior components - like Fox and Rock Shox suspension and Sram X1 transmission. There was no room for compromise with this bike. And that means that, whatever challenge you choose, from alpine singletrack to an endurance event, the Stereo SL will be more than up for it.
Matured over the years, every detail refined and tweaked to perfection. With its full carbon frame constructed using the Advanced Twin Mold technique, 140mm of superbly efficient and comfortable ETC suspension and a lively ride feel courtesy of our Agile Trail Geometry (ATG), we reckon there's not much room left for improvement. We've built in the lowest standover for its travel class, meaning you'll have more confidence on technical trails. And as for attention to detail, we've got it covered: high strength 7075 aluminium hardware in the chainstay bearings, a stiff and lightweight full carbon linkage rocker and well thought out internal cable routing.
A bike this fast demands components to match. So we began by selecting a Rock Shox Pike RC fork with tapered steerer and 15mm axle, to keep the front wheel steering accurately and braking swiftly and surely. Then we added a Fox Float DPS shock at the rear, to deliver incredible small bump plush and superlative big bump control. We threw in the superbly strong and light CSW AM 2.7 wheelset shod with tubeless-ready Fat Albert tyres for grip in all conditions. And, of course, we went for a full Sram X1 1x11 groupset with Sram Guide R brakes... and fnished the whole lot off with a Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper post. This is a bike that wants for nothing…
