Class-leading trail performance and comfort - that's what the Stereo 120 Race 29 is all about. To that end, we chose Shimano's legendarily reliable XT 1x12 transmission, and matched it with smooth, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Climbing or descending, you're always in complete control. A CUBE dropper post, Fulcrum wheelset and Newmen Evolution cockpit components are the standout highlights, whilst RockShox provides the 130mm Recon Gold fork and Deluxe Select+ rear shock for superb bump-taming performance.

Frame and equipment
The best performance at the lowest possible weight - that's what the Stereo 120 is all about. Built around our Efficient Trail Control Kinematics and a 130mm fork, the frame's Agile Trail Geometry puts you firmly in control at all times. Sleek, hydroformed tubing is triple butted to save as much weight as possible without sacrificing strength, and features like the tapered head tube and Boost 148 rear axle ensure the best possible pedalling efficiency and steering precision. It's the complete trail-taming package.
For whom is the Cube Stereo 120 Race 29 suitable?
For sporty off-road and touring use. Once Fully, always Fully. In the past, these bikes were much heavier and less manoeuvrable than their hardtail counterparts, but the development of the past few years has brought about a lot. The increased comfort and the significantly better traction are no longer paid for with higher weight. The new frame sets and high-quality components turn the former heavyweights into serious bikes - also for touring and racing use. The full suspension gives you outstanding comfort on the long tour, while you can count on the great traction on the trail. The Fully is the right choice for those who don't know exactly where to go before the tour.
The advantages of 29 inch tires
29 inch is THE trend of the last few years, which was able to assert itself completely. Initially viewed critically by mountain bike purists and equipped with some teething troubles, the bike industry has recognized the trend and made it the new standard through continuous improvements. The advantage of the 29" tyres is the enormous running smoothness, which brings great advantages and saves power on long tours as well as uphill and downhill. Obstacles are easier to overcome due to the larger circumference of the wheels, and a greater distance is covered by turning the bottom bracket. By improvements and adjustments in the frame construction and the component selection, initial problems with the agility in the Trail and the optics of smaller frames were optimally balanced. Whether fully or hardtail, a 29 will take you far away.
