Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 SL 500 27.15 2019

Size


Improving on near-perfection might seem like a fool's errand, but to our designers it's just another challenge. The Stereo Hybrid 160 SL takes the concept of an enduro-capable Bosch e-bike to the next level, blending an exceptionally accomplished long travel chassis with a choice selection of components and Bosch's matchless Performance CX drive unit. Revised geometry adds more reach, a slacker head angle and more progressive kinematics to an already highly regarded mountain-taming bike. With its sleek looks, Shimano XT 11 speed transmission, powerful XT hydraulic disc brakes and Fox 36 Float GRIP 170mm fork with Float DPX2 EVOL shock, it's a fork to be reckoned with in the mountains. The Fox Transfer Performance Elite stealth dropper post is the icing on the cake, opening up even more line choices for the adventurous rider. You only live once. Shouldn't your bike choice reflect that?

DETAILS

A bike designed to tackle the toughest trails at speed needs a strong backbone. That's why the Stereo Hybrid 160 SL's down tube is a one piece gravity casting, completely enclosing the Bosch battery and drive unit in a structure that, combined with the tapered head tube, is as rigid as we could make it. The dirt-proof cover keeps the battery safe - and you can charge the battery in situ, though it's also really easy to remove. Tweaked kinematics add more progression to the suspension for even better trail performance, while feedback from our team riders has resulted in more reach and a slacker head angle in a revised version of our acclaimed Agile Ride Geometry. Out back is a Boost axle for maximum drivetrain efficiency and accurate tracking, while internal cable routing means you'll spend time enjoying your bike's clean, crisp shifting instead of maintaining it.
