stereo hybrid 140 hpa

Race 500 27.5

Improving on something that's already very good is a challenge in itself. Creating something new and extraordinary is even harder. But that's why we chose not to just revise every detail, but to start again from the ground up. Taken together, the many innovations we've fitted build into the most ground-breaking and high quality All-Mountain Hybrid currently available: cutting-edge, high performance and just cyring out for epic singletrack adventures.

Frame

The CUBE way of doing things is simple: maximum performance, zero compromise. We've built on well-known features - like our much-lauded Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) and Efficent Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics - to give our new four pivot 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame a real innovative edge. The new Tuned Drive Position (TDP) integrates the drive unit into the frame better than ever before, enabling us to reduce chainstay length by 20mm and improve agility and overall handling as a result. Boost hubs with 148mm axles keep everything tracking true and straight and a new battery mount means we can now position it inside the frame. The incredibly clean looks are given a boost by running cables internally, protecting them from damage and adding to the bike's stunning appearance.

Components

Even the steepest, narrowest singletrack won't catch the Stereo Hybrid HPA 140 Race 27.5 out. The Bosch CX drive - currently the best-performing eMTB drive on the market - delivers up to 75Nm torque for effortless climbing. Throw in the 500Wh battery and the entire system's extraordinary efficiency, and it's easy to see why even epic hilly routes are now a possibility. The enormous gear ratio range of the 11 speed Shimano XT transmission with its 11-42 cassette means you'll always be able to find the right gear - and there's no need for a double chainset. And the new XT brake system won't let you down, even on the longest and steepest of mountain descents. Fox's new generation Float DPS Performance shock and 34 Float Performance fork work together to provide peerless bump-eating smoothness. And robust Answer Atac EM wheels with wide, grippy Schwalbe Hans Dampf tyres - in puncture-proof Super Gravity form at the rear - provide all rigidity, traction and control you need to tame the toughest of trails.

      • 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.

        To protect our high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Save System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.

        The Agile Trail Geometry carries over the Agile Ride Geometry’s benefits but with more focus on aggressive trail use. This can be achieved through a more compact frame construction with an even lower top tube and improved standover height. The result is more freedom of movement on the bike for the rider and a lower centre of gravity which guarantees agile handling and more riding fun.

        Our Efficient Trail Control series works so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With 27.5 and 29er wheel options our frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The low leverage ratio and linear rate curve makes the bike very sensitive, avoids bobbing and offers full usable travel all the time. Steep seat tube angles and slack head tube angles make these dream machines ready for action on the descent where you can use the full amount of travel to be on the safe side.

        Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. We researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every CUBE full-suspension model.

        The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this – CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill. This fact is proven by many top test results in leading magazines over the last few years.

        Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame – if not required – will be sealed with a cover for protection.

      • Tapered Steerer

        This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.

        For our high end bikes we use High Performance 7005 Aluminium alloy which has a very low density combined with high strength due to the alloy elements and the hardening heat treatment. By triple butting or even quadruple butting (as in the REACTION , HANZZ and AERIUM models) to give different wall thicknesses in one tube, aluminium tubes are reinforced where required and made lighter where possible. In this way, we succeed in getting material where its needed most. In addition we use special tube shapes, manufactured with hydroforming technology to better cope with directional forces. The low density and high strength as well as the butting and the hydroforming technology enable us to make high performance frames with an ultimate level of stiffness.

        Boost 148mm technology provides precise handling, on every trail, in every situation. The hub flange moves 3mm towards the outside on both sides. It increases the stiffness of a 27.5? wheel by 14% and, for a 29er wheel, by 21%. The reason is the spoke’s wider support in comparison to the 142mm hubs used previously.

        The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren’t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.

        This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the
        weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame
        to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
