When the constant evolution of the MTB throws up a genuinely useful innovation, it's our job to turn it into something beautiful, useful and fun to ride. That's how we ended up with the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 SL 27.5+ - a tour de force of all our design experience and cutting edge of technologies. Plus sized tyres, Bosch hybrid technology and trail-devouring travel adds up to the ride of your life.
Frame: It's a good thing that our engineers are some of the most experienced in the bike industry, because combining 140mm of rock-swallowing travel with the clearance for 27.5+ tyres - all while accommodating the very specific requirements of Bosch's drive system - is no mean feat. A Boost rear end and fork, our much-admired efficient trail control kinematics (ETC), tapered fork and carefully tuned tube profiles all add up to a surprisingly stiff, light and responsive chassis. Finishing touches include internal cable routing and the kind of agile handling you'd expect of CUBE.
Features: A trail bike this capable deserves components that will deliver miles of smiles, ride after ride. That's why we kitted out the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 SL 27.5+ with Shimano's new 11-speed XT transmission. Paired with the peerlessly smooth and powerful Bosch CX drive system and 500Wh battery pack, the 11-46 tooth cassette serves up seamlessly silky shifts and a huge gear range. Magura's MT 5 hydraulic disc brakes are the perfect match, giving enough easily controllable power to bring even the most enthusiastic rider safely to a halt in any situation. Rock Shox's Pike RC works in tandem with a Fox Float DPS Performance EVOL rear shock to take the edge off anything the trail throws your way, while Race Face contact points keep you perfectly in control.
