CUBE STEREO HYBRID 140 HPC SL 625 DESERT/ORANGE 2021
A great bike should get out of the way and let you focus on the ride, so we started with a Fox 34 Rhythm fork and Fox Float DPS EVOL shock for the ultimate in comfort and control. Shimano's XT gears and brakes' reputation for faultless function and reliability, combined with a 625Wh battery and Bosch's fourth-generation power, serve up enough motive power to keep you rolling, even on longer rides. Add the big-volume, grippy Schwalbe 2.6in tyres and CUBE dropper post, and you'll be wondering how you ever managed without it. Simply add your spirit of adventure.
Frame and equipment
Building more power and great handling into a 140mm carbon hybrid is no mean feat - and it all centres around the CUBE Modular Battery System and Bosch's fourth-generation CX drive unit. The fully enclosed battery looks great, is easy to recharge and is protected from the elements. With a Boost 148 rear axle, larger pivot bearings for longer life and internal cable routing, you're assured of great handling and lower maintenance, too. And our All Mountain Geometry is specifically designed to work with both the Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC's suspension kinematics and the Bosch drive system, so you end up with a bike that's stable, confidence-inspiring and fun.
For whom is the Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL 625 suitable?
For athletes and enthusiasts. Many professionals now use bikes from this category for training purposes. The reason is obvious: The bike takes the rider up the mountain with a lot of power and down the trail with top components. But these bikes don't weigh as much as they did a few years ago. The perfectly integrated batteries hide the power at first sight. Top quality sports equipment with serious ambitions for all riders who see support as an opportunity rather than a flaw.
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.
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.
