Whether battling against the clock on a World Cup downhill course or having a blast in the bike park, the brand new Two15 is up for it. Because we've shaved a dramatic amount of weight in the new 27.5 inch incarnation of the Two15 and refined the suspension performance to boot, its downhill performance is even better than before - because lighter means easier to handle, and that translates to more speed.
Our highly regarded downhill bike - which has won plaudits in bike mag reviews - is ready for the next challenge. As the bigger, wilder brother of the Stereo and Fritzz series, the Two15 shares the same basic HPA four pivot frame design. That means that we were able to realise the same suspension characteristics - with 215mm travel - as its predecessor, but with noticeably more agility. Special attention was paid to reducing weight. The Two15's hydroformed, triple butted tubeset with new suspension design and 157mm chainstays weighs only slightly more than an enduro frame, but delivers extraordinary steering precision. Optimised suspension design provides apparently endless grip on every trail surface, while internal cable routing tidies up the bike's appearance and are less vulnerable to damage.
A gravity bike built to World Cup level deserves only the very best suspension components. So for the Two15 SL we've opted for the superior Fox Factory series, with their low friction Kashima coating. With multiple setup options and excellent performance, the Fox 40 Float RC2 with adjustable low and high speed compression damping and the DHX2 with its improved internal design - both featuring CUBE's Custom Tune - are in a league of their own. 200mm of travel up front and an even more impressive 215mm at the rear will need an outstanding rider to even come close to the bike's limits. Stable, safe and powerful braking is assured by Sram's Guide RSC disc brakes, while the DH-specific Sram XO1 transmission with its 7 speed cassette guarantees maximum chain control. CSW DH 3.7 wheels support the Two15 with indestructible DT Swiss technology in spite of their incredibly low weight, shod with grippy and robust Schwalbe Magic Mary tyres in Super Gravity trim.
