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.
Cube are presenting their new Stereo 140 as their ultimate trail bike, and will be offering models in C68, standard carbon and aluminium to suit all budgets. Most of the range is fitted with a Fox 32 CTD fork, but there is also a model with a Fox 34 for all-mountain adventures, and a model fitted with a Pike for getting rowdy.
