Our engineers aren't interested in change for the sake of it - just perfection. That's what's on offer from the full carbon chassis, produced using our Advanced Twin Mold Monocoque technique, with an extraordinary fibre content of 68% and our Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics. A better combination of efficiency, durability and low weight simply isn't possible. In order to meet the demands of the new breed of all mountain and enduro riders, we gave the Stereo 140 29ers even more standover clearance and a new, longer top tube. Wide Boost hubs also increase chassis and wheel stiffness, so that the Stereo C:68 maintains its lively ride feel and precise steering for technical trail riding. With details like high tensile 7075 aluminium hardware, internal cable routing and a Direct Mount front derailleur, it's hard to see how we could improve on this bike any further.
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.
