Stereo 140 C:68 SLT Di2 27.5 Frame zeroblack
The best is still not good enough for you? Then the Cube Stereo 140 C:68 SLT Di2 27.5 frame may just be what you are looking for to go all out on the trail.
The completely new state-of-the-art 27.5″ full carbon chassis, Agile Ride Geometry and Efficient Trail Control kinematics set the framework for a bike that seems to know no limits. With our Advanced Twin Mold Monocoque process we manufactured the tough, featherweight frame with a full 140mm of travel that features every technology currently possible. When it comes to handling and suspension performance, we confidently claim perfection for the Stereo. We are convinced that you can’t get lighter, tougher and better.

Technologies C:68 Carbon Technology
Manufacturing process: the highly specific manufacturing process combines our Advanced Twin Mold and Zero techniques with the right materials to create the lightest carbon fibre frame on the market. Advanced Twin Mold is a special manufacturing process. We minimise imprecise overlaps by accurately fitting individual carbon layers? overlap regions during the monocoque building process. The result is a frame with no superfluous weight ? every gramme counts. We also use a solid core in the centre of the frame during the manufacturing process, which is removed when the frame is finished. This reduces the buildup of folded material and increases the safety and integrity of our lightest frames. Zero means not bonding components to the frame unless it?s absolutely necessary. Different materials have different characteristics. Because of this, it can be risky to combine multiple materials. So we don?t use bonded aluminium components like bottom bracket shells or bearing sleeves in any of our C:68 frames. The only exception we make is for screw threads, which have to be aluminium (rather than carbon) to guarantee durability. By using this minimalist approach we save weight on the C:68 frame and mimise potential weak points ? a CUBE bike should last for years!
Materials, of course, are just as important as the manufacturing process. We can only produce our high quality C:68 carbon by using the best mix of individual ingredients. Achieving the extremely high carbon content of 68% means minimising the resin that joins the fibres together. We?ve reduced the space between fibres by applying Spread Tow Material ? something that was made possible by the fibre bundles? flat structure. These are not round, but have a stretched out cross section. This results in fewer gaps that have to be filled with resin. Because of the biaxial structure we can layer the fibres in two different directions within a single layer, allowing us to reduce wall thickness by up to 25% without compromising the stiffness or durability of the frame.
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 Trail Geometry
The Agile Trail Geometry carries over the Agile Ride Geometry?s benefits but with more focus on aggressive trail use. This can be achieved through a more compact frame construction with an even lower top tube and improved standover height. The result is more freedom of movement on the bike for the rider and a lower centre of gravity which guarantees agile handling and more riding fun.
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.
Advanced Twin Mold
The Advanced Twin Mold process eliminates any dangerous folding by continuous control of carbon fibers during the curing process. This is made possible by an internal form which provides the perfect frame form during the layup process. Each individual fibre remains precisely in position as it cures. In this way less material can be used as the individual layers can be more accurately and reliably positioned. This production method also makes it possible to increase the carbon fibre proportion in line with anticipated loadings at specific points on the frame. All SUPER HPC models from 2014 on are manufactured using this high-tech method.
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.
