When we introduced our carbon Stereo 140 Super HPC in 2013 - the first manufacturer of a long travel carbon 29er - we set the bar very high. With the new Stereo 140 C:68 SLT 29, we've raised it again. A full carbon frame equipped with the finest next generation components - including Sram's XO1 Eagle 1x12 groupset - paves the path to the future. But more than that, it's also the ideal bike for perfectionists, singletrack junkies and trail shredders everywhere.
Our engineers aren't interested in change for the sake of it - just perfection. That's what's on offer from the full carbon chassis, produced using our Advanced Twin Mold Monocoque technique, with an extraordinary fibre content of 68% and our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics. A better combination of efficiency, durability and low weight simply isn't possible. In order to meet the demands of the new breed of all mountain and enduro riders, we gave the Stereo 140 29ers even more standover clearance and a new, longer top tube. Wide Boost hubs also increase chassis and wheel stiffness, so that the Stereo C:68 maintains its lively ride feel and precise steering for technical trail riding. With details like high tensile 7075 aluminium hardware, internal cable routing and a Direct Mount front derailleur, it's hard to see how we could improve on this bike any further.
The SLT acronym isn't applied lightly at CUBE - it demands the best of the best. So, of course, we started with Sram's eye-opening XO1 Eagle 1x12 transmission. Simple, light and with an incredibly wide gear range, its pared-down looks and operation are the perfect complement for the Stereo 140 C:68 SLT 29. A Syntace carbon cockpit works in tandem with Fox's 34 Float Factory fork with Boost 110 hub to deliver pinpoint steering precision and plush, controllable bump absorption. The matching Fox Float DPS Factory EVOL shock at the rear combines unbelievable small bump response with an unmatched ability to take large hits in its stride. And Sram Level Ultimate brakes with large 180mm rotors, clamped to the light, stiff and strong Nobby Nic-clad CSW AM 3.9 wheels, serve up all the stopping power you'll ever need. Ultimate speed, power and control - it's all here.
