Bike: Is it possible to improve upon near-perfection? To Cube’s designers, that's just another challenge. The brand new Stereo Hybrid 160 SL takes the concept of an enduro hybrid one step further, blending a newly developed aluminium chassis with a choice selection of components for even better performance than before. With its sleek looks, integrated battery, Bosch CX drive unit and Shimano XT 11 speed transmission, it's a force to be reckoned with in the mountains. Add the rock-swallowing travel provided by a Fox 36 Float Performance 170mm fork and Float DPX2 Performance EVOL shock and you can see why we're so excited by this bike. The Fox Transfer Performance Elite internal dropper post is the icing on the cake, opening up, even more, line choices for the adventurous rider. You only live once. Shouldn't your bike choice reflect that fact?


Frame: A bike designed to tackle tough trails at speed needs a strong backbone. Cube went right back to the drawing board for the Stereo Hybrid 160 SL, designing a brand new one piece, gravity cast down tube to join the tapered head tube and Bosch CX motor's custom housing in the most rigid way possible. Housed inside this marvel of engineering is the new Bosch Intube battery, protected from the elements by a sealed, splash and dirt-proof cover. It doesn't just look great - it's also practical, since you can recharge without removing the battery from the frame. The elegant rear end features a Boost hub and short chainstays for the best possible handling, while internal cable routing means you'll be spending time enjoying your bike's clean, crisp shifting instead of maintaining it. We reckon we've thought of everything... so you can just ride.


Features: A long list of impressive components is definitively topped by the best e-MTB drive currently available - the Bosch CX. With up to 75Nm of torque and astonishing power output, this is a consummate hill climber. Backing up all this power is a high-performance 500Wh battery, which opens up epic rides without the need to constantly cast a worrying glance at the battery display.

Shimano's 11-speed XT transmission not only guarantees flawlessly reliable gearshifts, but the 11-46 cassettes also offer an extremely large gear ratio range. The matching hydraulic disc brakes are every bit as good in terms of stopping power, particularly when paired with large 180mm rotors front and rear. Fox shock technology - with a Fox 36 Float GRIP up front and Float DPS Performance EVOL at the rear - provides smooth, easily adjustable suspension travel.

And wheels pairing XT Boost hubs with Cube EX23 rims and shod with wide 2.60in Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres transfer drive and braking forces to the trail with impeccable reliability.


 

Drive: The Performance Line CX raises eBiking to a new level experience with a noticeable boost in performance, a maximum torque of up to 75 newton meters and sustained power into the high cadence range for sporty acceleration, even when riding over alpine terrain. Bosch Performance CX drive complies with all road regulations and its compact design has the additional advantage in that it is attached to the bottom bracket, giving the bike an optimal center of gravity. The drive unit is equipped with an electronic control system with three sensors for force, cadence and speed, ensuring optimal coordination. It takes 1000 sensor measurements per second.


 

Battery: New the Bosch PowerTube 500. This sleek 500Wh battery allows bike Cube to integrate the tube shape battery into the frame. Until now most batteries fit externally. The battery is impressively easy to use. Thanks to a  locking system, the battery can be removed and re-attached just like any “plug &play” device and can be completely charged in its own charger in a record time of only 3 hours. 

 


Display: High-tech on the handlebars. The new Purion 2-in-1 onboard computer has all the basic information at the click of a thumb: The new Purion onboard computer operates with maximum efficiency and precision. The display clearly shows the most important information. The small control panel permits the rider to control any integrated areas on the bike. The Assistance Level and the light function can be controlled and selected. Furthermore, the small screen displays the current battery status, the coverage in kilometres and includes all the functions of a conventional bicycle computer as well as service interval, the display always reminds you when the eBike is due for a service.
