A full-on, no-compromise, scaled-down version of our acclaimed Stereo 120 full-suspension platform, the Stereo 120 Rookie is designed and equipped so that your young trail rider can explore their limits. A Suntour air fork and air shock specially tuned for lighter riders is just the start. We added Shimano's super-reliable 1x12 transmission, for an incredible range of trail-taming gears. Magura MT Thirty hydraulic disc brakes for safe, consistent stopping. And the Stereo 120's legendary handling, for ride-after-ride inspiration.
Frame and equipment
The Stereo 120 Rookie pulls no punches. It features the same kind of hydroformed frame tubes as our adult bikes, carefully honed into two perfectly proportioned smaller frame sizes. The short linkage, covered pivots and smooth suspension kinematics are straight from the Stereo 120 playbook, too. Internal cable routing reduces maintenance, there's a replaceable gear hanger in case of accidents, and a tapered head tube for ultra-precise steering. Your young rider is going to be stoked on this...
For whom is the Cube Stereo 120 Rookie 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 27.5 inch tires
27.5 inch wheels are the logical addition to the large 29 inch wheels and the optimum compromise for all smaller riders and trail fanatics. The combination of smoothness and manoeuvrability meets every wish of a biker. More agile than the 29 inch wheels and therefore the optimal choice for off-road driving and hairpin bends that leave you with little reaction time. This category offers the best choice especially for those changing from 26 inch wheels. 27.5 inch combines the best of two worlds and creates bikes that are not restricted in their use. Whether Fully or Hardtail - 27.5 inch is the golden mean and the perfect tyre size for all who want to use their mountain bike according to its purpose.
