STING WS 140 HPC

Race 27.5

"This bike is a blast for female trail riders who like to push their limits. "

verdict "very good"

Big days out in big country demand a bike that's up to the task. For 2018 we started with a blank sheet of paper and crafted a brand new Sting 140 HPC Race that's better handling and lighter than ever. With a new carbon fibre main frame in sizes down to 13.5 inch and revised geometry, it's your gateway to longer, more adventurous riding - and more fun, whether you're tackling steep switchbacks or a fast, rolling singletrack descent. Featuring an easy to adjust Fox 34 Rhythm fork and Float DPS shock, powerful Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano's superbly reliable 2x11 SLX and XT gear components, it's our all mountain queen.

Details

Nothing stays the same for ever, which is why we took all the good things about our Sting 140 HPC Race and repackaged them into a completely new frame for 2018. Short chainstays and a steep seat angle translate into sharp handling and improved climbing, while a longer reach and a head angle specifically designed for 150mm forks mean you'll always be in control, no matter how tough the trail. All our carbon expertise is poured into the front triangle's stiff, light and elegant structure - and it's backed up by an equally svelte aluminium rear end with Boost 148 axle and hidden pivot points to match the front's super-clean looks.
