Don’t be fooled by its understated looks – the Stereo 120 HPC SLT 29’s trail-taming ability is awesome. CUBE’s acclaimed suspension kinematics are aided and abetted by a Fox 34 Float Factory fork and Float DPS Factory shock, both featuring Kashima coatings for enhanced bump sensitivity. The remote dropper post gives better control on tough trails. Shimano’s powerful XT hydraulic disc brakes, grippy Maxxis tyres, light Newmen Advanced carbon wheels and ultra-light Schwalbe inner tubes offer staggering grip and stopping power. And Shimano’s peerless XT 1×12 transmission – powered by an E13 TRSr carbon crank – combines a huge range, super-precise shifting and unmatched reliability.
