The 2018 Cube Stereo Hybrid Team is a pre-order item. Delivery of this bike is expected in April 2018, however, lead times can vary, we will keep you fully updated on lead times for delivery should you place an order. Completely redesigned for 2018, the Cube Stereo Hybrid Action Team looks better than ever, featuring the all-new Bosch Powertube battery, you’d hardly notice that this was an eBike! The most noted point of the 2018 Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team is the all-new design. Still constructed from a Superlite Aluminium but this time with much neater motor integration, making you forget its even there when looking at the bike. Cube have also included the new Bosch Powertube battery which has been elegantly slotted straight into the downtube of the bike. The battery still provides the same 500Wh of power which is still the highest-capacity battery Bosch produce for electric bikes. The motor featured on this bike is the renowned Bosch Performance CX which features 75Nm of torque and 250W of power which has been favourited by mountain bikers, and now includes the new eMTB mode as standard which gives a sporty start as soon as you press on the pedals and a much sleeker power curve, automatically switching between modes to give the optimal power delivery for every situation, allowing you to concentrate on the trail ahead, rather than your remote. The Bosch system is all controlled via the bar-mounted Purion display which is small in size to keep it out of harm’s way with the aggressive nature of mountain biking, whilst still being easy to read and control. The Purion displays all the important information, such as speed, assistance level and remaining range available. As with any Action Team model from Cube, the Fox Kashima Coat is flowing, now with the included Fox Transfer dropper post. At the front of the bike we have 170mm of travel from a Fox 36 Float Factory FIT4 fork which is painted in Fox’s world-cup winning orange. The Fox 36 is the perfect all-mountain fork, capable of more than Enduro racing. The exceptionally strong 36 features the best-of-the-best technology that Fox has to offer. At the rear we see a Fox Float DPX2 Factory EVOL shock which works with the frame to provide 160mm of rear suspension travel. The DPX2 is all-new for 2018 and has been dubbed as the ‘ultimate trail shock’. This particular shock combines Fox DPS XC efficiency and X2 DH performance to create the best all-round option. The shock gives excellent small-bump sensitivity, great mid-stroke damping support, and better control in transitions. The 8-Speed SRAM EX1 Drivetrain has been specifically developed for electric bikes which features proven SRAM 1x technology. The EX1 cassette gives an 11-48t range which allows optimal steps between cogs for more purposedriven shifts and provides the best gear range for mid-motor e-mtb’s. Cube have fitted a Newmen Evolution wheelset fitted with Schwalbe Magic Mary and Nobby Nic 2.6 wide tyres to give the Action Team the perfect blend of speed, grip and control. This wheelset and tyre combination keeps you firmly planted to the ground in all weather conditions and with the Shimano Saint BR-M820 203mm and 180mm disc brakes you are able to push your boundaries with the confidence that this bike will deliver, whatever situation you may encounter.
