The Stereo 160 HPA SL created waves when we introduced it, back in 2016. From the high quality HPA frame with 27.5in wheels and 160mm travel, to the hand picked components including Fox suspension and the 2x11 XT transmission, it's all designed to build into a total package that's perfect for taking on any trail - guaranteed.
This HPA four pivot frame is a prime example of the current state-of-the-art in frame building. Triple butted 7005 High Performance Aluminium tubes, put through a hydroforming process, combine with a Boost148x12 rear axle and Trail Motion Rocker linkage to provide a rigid frame structure that's still remarkably light. Our Efficient Trail Control system guarantees the best possible suspension performance, regardless of frame size. And the widely-admired lively steering and stable downhill performance is made possible by our Agile Trail Geometry (ATG).
The SL's suspension is provided by a Fox 34 Float Performance fork and Float DPS shock - the new reference for reliable, enduro-proof suspension and surprisingly low weight. Maximum control and comfort is assured, even on the most difficult and demanding of trails. Shimano's 2x11 XT transmission with 36x26T chainset gives the best possible versatility and seamless gear shifts. The Shimano XT disc brakes work with the Hans Dampf / Rock Razor tyre combination and CSW AM 2.7 wheels to deliver flawlessly powerful braking, whatever the trail or weather. Other standout features include the CUBE dropper post and the super-stiff Race Face 35mm cockpit components.
