AMS 150 HPA Pro 27.5 Frame grey’n’flashred
Fun and Trail Riding par excellence with the Cube AMS 150 HPA Pro 27.5 frame.
The frame is sturdy and lightweight, made with triple butted High Performance Aluminum 7005 and the Advanced Hydroforming process. Precise handling comes from the 3D rear dropouts and X12 Thru-axle. Syntace X12 rear axle system for maximum stiffness and user-friendly handling.

Technologies High Performance Aluminum
For our high end bikes we use High Performance 7005 Aluminium alloy which has a very low density combined with high strength due to the alloy elements and the hardening heat treatment. By triple butting or even quadruple butting to give different wall thicknesses in one tube, aluminium tubes are reinforced where required and made lighter where possible. In this way, we succeed in getting material where its needed most. In addition we use special tube shapes, manufactured with hydroforming technology to better cope with directional forces. The low density and high strength as well as the butting and the hydroforming technology enable us to make high performance frames with an ultimate level of stiffness.
The new STEREO , FRITZZ and HANZZ models are built using Advanced Hydroforming. Conventional hydroforming processes cannot achieve these custom shapes and technical advantages. As this manufacturing method reduces the number of welds, the weight is reduced while durability is increased.
Very high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are triple butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
The key requirement is for continuously active and fully usable travel, with the rear triangle unaffected by pedalling or especially braking forces. There are a number of ways of achieving this ? CUBE favours a four bar design with a chainstay pivot. Here, one of the pivots is located between the dropout and the chainstay, ensuring that braking does not have a negative effect on the movement of the rear wheel. By carefully positioning the remaining pivots, we obtain the finest riding qualities for our full suspension bikes both uphill and downhill. This fact is proven by many top test results in leading magazines over the last few years.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it’s also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
Agile Ride Geometry
Die Herausforderung der 29″ und 27.5″ Bikes liegt darin, dass die Unterschiede in Hinterbaul?nge, Schwerpunktlage und Radstand im Vergleich zum 26″ MT B die Fahreigenschaften negativ ver?ndern. Unsere konstruktiven L?sungen kompensieren dies: 1. Bei einem CUBE 29er oder 27.5 entspricht die Tretlagerh?he der eines 26″ Bikes. 2. Die Umwerferstellung ist so designt, dass trotz des tiefen Tretlagers die Schaltperformance zu 100% gegeben (patent pending) ist, und sich gleichzeitig mehr Reifenfreiheit zum Umwerfer ergibt. Dadurch wird der Hinterbau maximal kurz gehalten. Ein weiterer Vorteil dieser Konstruktion: das Sitzrohr muss nicht verbogen oder versetzt werden. Somit ergibt sich f?r alle Fahrergr??en der gleiche Sitzrohrwinkel. 3. Wir verwenden Federgabeln mit einem speziellen Offset, womit wir bei identischem Steuerrohrwinkel zum 26″ Bike auch den gleichen Nachlauf erreichen. Somit entspricht das Lenkverhalten der CUBE 29er und der 27.5″ Bikes dem eines bisherigen Mountainbikes.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Integrated Post Mount
The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater aren?t needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there’s potential to save weight in every detail.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube. On all of our CUBE carbon models the upper bearing shells are also directly in the frame, so that once more a few grams are saved and the energy transfer is very direct.
X12 Through Axle
In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.
Wet Paint Surface
On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame ? if not required ? will be sealed with a cover for protection.
