Don't judge a book by its cover: just because a bike has understated looks, don't assume that it doesn't also have a wild side. Our Stereo 120 HPC SL - available with either 27.5 or 29 inch wheels - is a true wolf in sheep's clothing. By combining a superlight carbon main frame with an aluminium rear end and next generation Fox and Shimano components, we've created an extraordinary lightweight bike capable of taking on anything you care to throw at it. If you like to ride everything from epic multi-day adventures to singletrack blasts on your home turf, start here…
The Stereo 120 HPC's 27.5 and 29 inch wheel options ensure that every rider can find their perfect fit. The bar is raised by combining Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) - which ensures that it has the lively, agile handling you'd expect from a CUBE full susser - with the perfect balance of stiffness and low weight, achieved with the Advanced Twin Mold carbon main frame and 6061 T6 rear end. The PressFit bottom bracket, internal cable routing, X12 quick release axle, tapered head tube and compact, forged Trail Motion Rocker linkage all contribute to making the frame as light and stiff as possible, so you can focus on the race or the next tricky section of trail.
Shimano's XT has been a mountain biking benchmark since its launch. The 2017 2x11 groupset continues the tradition, serving up flawless shifts across an incredibly wide gear range - with chainring sizes tailored to wheel size - and smooth, powerful stopping on even the longest descents. The same is true of Fox's suspension components, which perform even better than you'd expect thanks to the use of Kashima coatings. It's hard to believe just how efficient 120mm of travel can be. The CUBE Carbon cockpit, CUBE dropper post and CSW MA 3.7 wheels with DT Swiss technology round off this accomplished all-rounder.
