You can never have too much traction on tough trails - which is where 27.5+ tyres earn their stripes. Combined with a perfect 150mm chassis and high grade components, our Stereo SL 27.5+ is a bike that will satisfy the most demanding of all-mountain riders. Maximum trail-taming performance has just been given a new name.
Our engineers had to pull out all the stops to accommodate both 2.8 inch tyres and 150mm travel. Thanks to our decade-long experience with aluminium frame building and high performance tubes, we were able to build a frame that is both stiff and light. By using the Boost standard for both crank and hubs, we achieved the best possible tyre clearance and huge rigidity. Just like our other 2017 Stereos - and, in fact, all CUBEs - the frame's deep section down tube is the key to its safe but agile handling. Our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension system delivers neutral, sensitive four pivot travel that effortlessly smoothes even the roughest of trails. And, of course, all cables - even the dropper post - are routed internally.
Schwalbe's 2.8 inch Nobby Nic tyres are this 27.5+ bike's standout feature, naturally. Along with the super stable CSW B+ 3.7 wheels with 40mm rims and Boost hubs, they offer huge amounts of traction and margins of safety on the most demanding of technical trails. Fox's Float 34 fork with Kashima coating up front - and DPS shock at the rear - pair up to give the rider 150mm of smooth, controllable travel for the ultimate in comfort and control. The transmission is taken care of by Shimano's silky smooth XT 2x11 gears with 34x24 tooth chainrings, while braking is handled by powerful, progressive XT hydraulic discs. And, as you'd expect, we included a dropper post... so you can take the short line home.
