Frame: For 2017 we treated the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 Pro to a frame upgrade. Using Tuned Drive Position meant we could optimise the location of the Bosch drive unit while shortening the chainstays by 20mm. That, in turn, enabled us to tweak our Agile Ride Geometry to give an even livelier, better balanced ride than before. Hard to believe, but true. And, because these changes mean you're likely to be riding faster than ever, we added Boost hubs to keep everything tracking straight and true. Clever suspension design means that, despite its 140mm of four pivot-driven travel, the Stereo Hybrid remains extremely balanced and efficient even under hard pedalling. Truly, a bike for all reasons.
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.
