Exclusive: Cube reveal new Stereo 140 Super HPC 2015

Cube are excited to reveal their new top of the line Stereo 140 Super HPC retailing for €6999, incorporating their new C68 carbon technology. Cube have been developing C68 in their in-house laboratory, normally carbon fibres are round, with resin filling the space in between. Cube have found a way to flatten the carbon fibres requiring less resin, allowing them to use 8% more carbon and 8% less resin and thus save weight whilst maintaining strength. This results in their top of the line XTR Di2 specced bike weighing in at a featherweight 10.9kg.
