STEREO 170

TM 29

SRP*:

It wasn't too long ago when people laughed at 29er wheels. Well, with the Stereo 170 TM 29 they're definitely not laughing now. A mountain-flattening machine with surprisingly agile handling and an ability to swallow daunting trail obstacles whole and spit them out in manageable-sized chunks, it's proof that you can have your cake and eat it. We've ploughed all our experience of building great-riding four-bar full-suspension bikes into engineering this frame, resulting in a big-travel big wheeler that defies both gravity and expectations. As usual, the devil is in the detail - and we've sweated those to provide longer travel up front and more progressive shock performance at the rear. Read more... How? The 180mm RockShox Lyrik fork is complemented by an angle-set in the slack position for better handling, while the TwistLoc actuated RockShox Super Deluxe rear shock's flip chip gives hard-charging riders the control and progression they need on the big hits. The short rocker, covered pivots and rock solid e*thirteen bar and stem combo all help keep everything on track even when the trail's getting rowdy, so you can just concentrate on nudging your limits. A dropper post ensures you can laugh in the face of 'impossible' lines, while powerful four-piston Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes haul the e*thirteen wheelset and 2.35in tyre combo to a stop in any weather and on any trail and the 1x12 Shimano XT transmission gives you the gear range you need to tackle any trail, down or - yes - up. Is this bike all things to all riders? No. But if you like your trails steep, relentless and fast, the Stereo 170 TM 29 has got your back. And that's got to feel good, right?

There's nothing our engineering team like more than a challenge. So when we asked them to create a genuine big hit-capable full-suspension frame with clearance for wide 29er tyres, they didn't look at us as though we were mad. They just got down to work. Using all the experience they've gained from years of refining our four-bar suspension design, they tweaked the position of every linkage and frame joint until they were happy with the result, then refined every tube profile for the optimum blend of weight, strength and efficiency. Read more... With a short linkage, shock mount and covered bearings, it's clearly part of the CUBE full suspension family. Agile Trail Geometry and advanced suspension kinematics result in an exceptionally adept mountain tamer, with progressive suspension and a confidence-inspiring feeling on the trail. Hydroformed tubes, internally routed cables and our design team's usual fastidious attention to detail mean that it looks as good as it rides. So the only remaining question is, will you accept the challenge and push your boundaries? Because this is a frame that proves it can be done.

TECHNOLOGY

FLIP CHIP

In order to get the most out of your air and coil shocks, the frame kinematics must meet various requirements. The brand-new CUBE Stereo 170 series incorporates the clever flip chip 2-in-1 solution for the perfect amount of progression on any shock type.

ANGLE SET

The reversible headset inserts from Acros are as simple as they are efficient! Make your head tube angle steeper or slacker by 0.6° to dial in your descents or achieve the ideal bottom bracket height in combination with a 180mm fork.
