The Stereo Hybrid 140 demonstrated the enormous potential of an all-mountain e-bike. Now we're taking it a step further, crossing the threshold to genuine e-enduro with the Stereo Hybrid 160. The brand new High Performance Aluminium (HPA) frame was newly designed from the ground up and, together with its high quality components, guarantees breathtaking riding performance. This is a bike on which the boundary between uphill and down quite simply disappears.
The heart of the Stereo Hybrid 160 is a complex HPA frame. Using state-of-the-art hydroforming technology, triple butted tubing and our Smooth Welding process, the chassis boasts an astonishing stiffness-to-weight ratio as well as stunning good looks. Optimised Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) gives noticeably more room to manouevre and a lower centre of gravity. Thanks to a smaller Trail Motion Rocker linkage, there's even room for a shock with piggyback reservoir. The drive's new Tuned Drive Position (TDP) allows for an even more compact design at the rear, giving even more agility on the trail thanks to a shorter wheelbase. A wider 148mm Boost rear hub gives the stiffness increase that's needed to offset greater speeds. Other useful touches include the possibility of positioning the semi-integrated battery in the frame, the chain guide incorporated in the new CUBE design cover and the clean internal cable routing.
Bosch's best-performing drive ever designed is the CX. It's capable of making it up any singletrack trail thanks to a peak power output of 600W and up to 75Nm of available torque. Together with its 500Wh battery, the Stereo Hybrid 160 Race is your perfect partner for logging some new climbs and descents in record time. Shimano's new 11 speed XT transmission with its 11-42 cassette offers an incredibly wide range of gear ratios, making it easy to select the right one for any situation. And no matter how long or steep the descent, the XT brakes deliver fade-free power, time after time. But Enduro isn't just about downhill - and that's why we've fitted the Manitou Mattoc suspension fork with adjustable damping as well as Fox's new Float Performance DPS shock, for great pedalling performance. Answer's robust Atac EM wheels, shod with Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35in tyres including the puncture-resistant Super Gravity Version at the rear, will look after you on the most challenging of terrain. And CUBE's Dropper Post adds even more manouevrability to ramp up the fan factor another couple of notches!
