Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL 625 29" 2020 - Electric Mountain Bike
Mountain bike hybrid versatility has a new name, and that name is Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC. Built around Bosch's new, fourth-generation drive system and drawing on our extensive experience of hybrid power, carbon frame construction and efficient suspension kinematics, it represents a new breed of all-mountain e-MTBs. Our engineering team developed a brand-new concept for this frame, building the CUBE Modular Battery System to hide the Bosch power unit completely inside the sleek carbon down tube. A tough cover provides protection and shock absorption for the battery, whilst push-button access and a hidden lock make it both easy to use and secure from unwelcome attention. Even better, the new system frees up enough space for the option of a higher capacity battery than before, which translates to extended range and longer days out in the mountains. The fourth-generation Bosch CX drive unit sits in its own housing, while the aluminium rear triangle features a Boost 148 axle for efficient power transfer, larger bearings for longer life and a linkage designed to fit a trunnion shock. Our All Mountain Geometry is specifically designed to work with the suspension kinematics and Bosch drive system, offering handling that only our fully integrated design is capable of doing – stable, confidence-inspiring and fun. And of course it's chain guide compatible, there's a bottle cage mount for carrying tools or water, and integrated cable routing ensures that gears carry on shifting smoothly with minimal maintenance. Because who wants to spend time fiddling with their bike, when another day in the mountains beckons? All Mountain versatility, redefined: that's the Stereo Hybrid HPC 140.When you've run out of excuses, when only the best all-mountain Bosch e-bike will do... that's when you're ready to move up to the new Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL. Representing a new benchmark in rugged, adaptable e-MTB performance, it's exactly the kind of bike you need to move your riding up to the next level. Component highlights include fast-rolling 29er wheels, a Shimano SLX and XT 12-speed transmission, and Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes with large 203mm rotors front and rear for better brake performance on long, steep descents. But star of the show is the new frame. Using all their experience of building awesome trail-taming full suspension hybrids, our engineering team designed a brand-new chassis focussed around an elegant carbon main frame and an agile, stiff and responsive aluminium four-bar suspension assembly with trunnion shock and new, larger bearings for improved performance. A Fox Float DPS Performance shock and Fox 34 Rhythm fork work in perfect harmony to smooth out the trail, while a remote dropper post and the assured grip of Schwalbe's 2.6in Hans Dampf tyres – combined with our Agile Trail Geometry – open up even the most adventurous line choices. Our new Modular Battery System fully encloses the Bosch power unit inside the frame's sleek down tube, hidden under a two-piece battery cover with extra protection from dust, moisture and shock. Easily removable with a push button and hidden lock, it also means we've been able to increase the battery's capacity for even more range – and there's still room for a bottle cage mount. And of course, Bosch's superb fourth-generation CX drive unit serves up effortlessly smooth power with fingertip control from the Kiox Remote. For great days out in the mountains, all you need to add is you... and your spirit of adventure.
