Cube Stereo Super HPC 160 SL 650B
If you want to climb like a 29er and descend like a 26er, this is the no fuss way of doing it, and oh what style to do it in.......
650B means a whole new dimension for mountain biking – literally. The advantages of both known wheel sizes are combined: higher speed and better rolling over bumps while delivering more travel and still showing an agile geometry. CUBE developed a mountain bike concept for the slightly bigger wheels and more than 140mm of travel with the character of a perfect trail bike: welcome to our STEREO SHPC 160.
The modern balanced geometry (flat seat and steep steering angle, low BB and stand over height, short steering tube) leads to a centralized riding position IN the bike. This renders high agility and great downhill features when riding trails. Climbing is made easier because there is no front wheel lifting due to the steep steering angle and the lowered BB. At super steep climbs you can still lower the FOX 34 TALAS 650B from 160 to 120 mm.
The new kinematic features are a plus besides the advantages we got through the frame geometry. We achieved a small nearly constant working leverage. Combined with our pivot positions at the rear the damping works very sensitive and does not compromise pedaling.
