Cube Stereo 150 C:68 SLT 29 Carbon / Red 2020 carbon, red
The Stereo 150 C:68 SLT is our go-anywhere, ride-anything enduro race machine. Surprisingly light, supremely nimble and utterly assured in any trail situation, we've thrown everything at our range-topping, Alp-devouring machine to make sure that it's the best of the EWS best. Built around our C:68 carbon Stereo 150 chassis, we started as we meant to go on - with obsessive attention to detail and a focus on ultimate performance. We selected a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock for the rear, and matched it to a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate RC2 fork at the front for balanced, plush and controllable suspension performance at any speed. Wide Maxxis tyres on light, tough Newmen Evolution wheels offer the reassurance of bucketloads of grip and cushioning, no matter how hard you ride. Sram's X01 Eagle 12-speed transmission serves up crisp, reliable shifting and an extraordinary gear range capable of taking on any trail or race course. And bringing it all reliably to a halt is a set of Sram's powerful G2 Ultimate hydraulic disc brakes with a large 200mm rotor up front for better cooling on long, fast or steep descents. The RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post gets out of your way at the push of a button, and RaceFace cockpit components keep you on point and on your line. Refined geometry features a 66-degree head angle - perfect for a 160mm fork - with a 75.5-degree seat angle for efficient climbing, whilst 435mm chain stays ensure on-demand handling in tight and twisty singletrack. There's a built-in ISCG05 chain guide tab, while Boost 148 rear wheel spacing works with careful tube profiling and the tapered steerer to deliver superbly precise steering and tracking. Put it all together, and you can almost sense the podium beckoning. Are you up for it? Because the Stereo 150 C:68 SLT definitely is.
How do you combine mountain goat agility with mountain lion speed? A good start is to ask CUBE engineers to do the seemingly impossible and build a bike that climbs almost as well as it descends. The result is the Stereo 150 29's elegantly sculpted C:68 carbon frame. The clean lines, rocker cover and trunnion-mount shock are designed to combine efficiency, stability and intuitive handling. Boost 148 rear axle spacing works together with the tapered head tube and oversized down tube to deliver unparalleled steering precision and pedal input. ISCG05 tabs for a chain guide are standard, while short chain stays ensure agile handling and, in combination with the 75.5-degree seat tube, provide efficient climbing. The low standover and head tube specifically designed for a 160mm fork add the confidence, control and precision you need for sure-footed descending. Jack of all trades? We prefer to think it's master of them all.
