The Stereo 160's four pivot frame features up-to-the-minute technology. Maximum efficiency, peerless steering precision and light weight are combined with the 7005 High Performance Aluminium frame's combination of triple butting and hydroforming. Extra stiffness to cope with hard riding on difficult trails is provided by details like the tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket, Trail Motion Rocker linkage and adaptable X12 dropout with new Boost148 compatability. And, of course, our Efficient Trail Control suspension dynamics provides perfect control of the rear wheel's travel.
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.
