The Cube Stereo Super HPC 140 SLT 29er is perfect for anyone who wants a super-lightweight bike that consists of the lightest parts available. This bike is the benchmark for all others in this category; it combines the finest components with a Super HPC Advanced Twin Mould Technology Carbon frame to create a bike that allows you to push yourself to your limits. The Advanced Twin Mould process eliminates any dangerous folding by continuous control of carbon fibres during the curing process.
This Full Suspension AM Mountain Bike is perfect for any serious mountain biker looking to raise their game and push themselves even further to achieve more. The Stereo Super HPC 140 SLT has been tried, tested and created to ensure that when you ride a Cube 29er, you'll immediately feel at home and you'll maintain a natural riding position as well as retain the lively handling feel of 26" bikes.
The Stereo Super HPC 140 SLT features super-lightweight Formula R1 Racing hydraulic disc brakes with titanium hardware, a necessity to any high-end mountain bikes. It also consists of SRAM XX components to give your bike the highest performance aspects possible and it has a lightweight Race Face Next SL Carbon Fibre Crank with a titanium axle to ensure that you're pedalling feels weightless.
Another great feature of this bike is its fork and suspension combo. The Stereo features a Fox 34 Float CTD 29 air fork with sophisticated damping system, QR15 thru axle and Kashima coat to give you complete control over your bike and allow you to have one of the most comfortable rides possible. The fork also has a new steerer tube design which is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and generates a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. This All Mountain bike also features a Fox Float CTD with Adjust BoostValve shock, lockout, adjustable trail mode and rebound so you can enjoy your ride how you like it.
Amongst its epic components, Cube have designed their 29" bikes so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With their efficient trail control, 29er wheel frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The totally new configured linear low lever ratio 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.
The Cube Stereo also has custom lightweight wheels with Reynolds AM Carbon Fibre Rims and Tune Prince & Princess hubs to give you a stable ride whilst maintaining an extremely light weight. It also has ultralight contact points including a Syntace F109 stem, Vector carbon fibre handlebar, CUBE full carbon saddle and AX lightness seatpost, components that give you the highest possible performance at the lowest possible weight.
Advanced Twin Mould: The Advanced Twin Mould process eliminates any dangerous folding by continuous control of carbon fibres during the curing process. This is made possible by an internal form which provides the perfect frame form during the layup process. Each individual fibre remains precisely in position as it cures. In this way less material can be used as the individual layers can be more accurately and reliably positioned. This production method also makes it possible to increase the carbon fibre proportion in line with anticipated loadings at specific points on the frame. In 2013 all SUPER HPC models will be manufactured using this high-tech method.
Agile Ride Geometry: We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our 2012 series of big wheel bikes. This year we add the 650B wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26” bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height same as on our 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er.
Efficient Trail Control: We've overhauled our Efficient Trail Control series so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With 650B and 29er wheel options our frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The totally new configured linear low lever ratio 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.
Fox Customised Setup: 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.
X12 Thru Axle: In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.
Adaptable X12 Hanger: We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 thru-axle system. Enlarging the area at the frame where the hanger is sustained. We can now mount the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design one can also swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Trail Motion Rocker: The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece construction of the rocker gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
Tapered Steerer: This new steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and generates a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means that the greatest possible steering precision is generated. 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.
