The Cube Stereo 140 HPC Race 27.5 is German engineered to reimagine what you believed possible on a dominant all-mountain bike. Lightweight versatility starts with the carbon frame with advanced hydroformed and triple butted aluminum rear triangle that is durable and reliable without being cumbersome. It is precision built with ideal tube profiling and a brand new short rocker linkage with hidden pivots for improved looks and performance. Cube’s Agile Trail Geometry is built specifically for the 150mm travel Fox Rhythm Fork and an extremely agile feel on the dirt. This bike has been designed around Cube’s Efficient Trail Control Kinematics which give you playful yet reliably stable handling when you’re out crushing your local trials. While the trunion mount Fox Float DPS rear shock is incredibly easy to adjust and together with the fork and overall design gives you an incredible trail riding experience.
The equipped 1x12 Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain offers simply brilliant and reliable shifting with the gear range to get aggressive on the dirt. Shimano match the brilliance of the drivetrain with the awesome Shimano MT520/500 Hydraulic Disc Brakes with 203/180mm rotors and the ability to stop on a dime and give you unrivalled confidence. You'll need all that control when you're rolling on the fast Fulcrum Red 55 Em wheelset and grippy Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres for the ultimate trail shredding combination. The Cube Stereo 140 HPC Race 27.5 is an aggressively agile dual suspension mountain bike which is built for a great time and high-level performance. Tame any trail with this great creation straight out of Germany and onto your local trails.
Agile Ride Geometry: We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes.
Boost 148: Boost 148mm technology provides precise handling, on every trail, in every situation. The hub flange moves 3mm towards the outside on both sides. It increases the stiffness of a 27.5? wheel by 14% and, for a 29er wheel, by 21%. The reason is the spoke’s wider support in comparison to the 142mm hubs used previously.
Adaptable X12 Hanger: We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
X12 Through Axle: In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.
FSP4Link: The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this – CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill.
Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, eek appearance.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint to save weight.
Frame Safe System: To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
Stealth Ready: Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.
Smooth Welding: This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
Integrated Post Mount: The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.
