CUBE Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race 500
The Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race from CUBE is a high spec carbon frame eMTB packed full of features, and ready to combat the toughest trail.
New for 2018 is a completely reworked frame, and the inclusion of the new Bosch PowerTube. CUBE’s range-topping full suspension e-bike has yet again taken a huge step forward. Built on the success of its forebears, the Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race has a fully integrated Bosch performance CX motor capable of delivering 75Nm of torque. The C:62 Monocoque Advanced Twin Mold Technology CARBON frame is both lighter and stiffer for 2018. The result is improved handling and a more comfortable ride. Thanks to a one-piece carbon down-tube, both battery and motor are practically invisible.
Revised geometry for the coming season includes a more progressive shock rate. In addition, the bottom bracket is higher than previously and the head tube is longer for better stability. The overall result of these refinements is an eMTB with greater comfort and nimbleness.
There’s a high level of components on the Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race. First and foremost is the excellent FOX 34 Rhythm forks with 120mm of travel. These will iron out any undulations great or small, and attack the most demanding trail. Rear suspension is provided via a very nice Fox Float DPS EVOL. Smooth and responsive the FOX offers 3-modes of adjustment that can be tailored easily to the rider’s needs. Both gearing and braking on the Race is superb. Climbs and descents are a breeze thanks to a wide range 11-46T cassstte and Shimano XT 11-speed gears with SLX shifters. Magura MT Trail Custom hydraulics with 180mm/180mm rotors ensure that braking is progressive, effective and highly responsive.
A tough and resilient wheelset provides excellent performance and grip in all weather conditions. Schwalbe Nobby Nic, Addix Performance, 2.602 tyres on CUBE’s EX30 tubeless-ready rims offer great adhesion as well as a balanced level of resistance.
Stealth dropper post-ready cable routing comes as standard for the easy addition if required. Internal cable routing further enhance the absorbing looks and appeal of this phenomenal eMTB. With a lower centre of gravity and lighter weight for 2018, the Stereo Hybrid 120 HPC Race just raised the bar another notch.
