C:68 is our answer to the question, “what’s currently possible in carbon frame construction?” Our engineering team has sunk nearly three years of painstaking development work into this frame, increasing the fibre content to an even higher 68%. It’s light as a feather, incredibly stiff and also unebelievably durable – a class leader in full carbon suspension. Agile Trail Geometry (ATG) means it has our trademark ride-by-wire handling, while Efficient Trail Control (ETC) guarantees suspension that’s as efficient as it is sensitive. Is there a better mountain bike frame? Not right now. This is the ultimate.
Sram’s 1×12 Eagle groupset has been making waves, and it’s not hard to see why. Simplicity, low weight and an incredible gear range combine to make it the go-to choice for discerning riders everywhere – and that’s why it’s the perfect match for the Stereo 140 C:68 SLT 27.5. The same is true of Fox’s Factory suspension. We’ve fitted the ultra light and stiff 34 Float Factory fork with 150mm travel up front and a Float DPS Factory EVOL shock at the rear, both with the extra sensitivity of a Kashima coating and both in custom CUBE tune. The powerful and incredibly controllable Sram Level Ultimate bake system offers on-demand stopping power and modulation. Combined with the Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper post – which can be lowered up to 150mm (125mm for smaller frames) – you’re guaranteed the best possible control and manoeuvrability, whatever the trail. Super light CSW AM 3.7 wheels with tubeless-ready rims and a Syntace Carbon cockpit complete the spec list, leaving practically no room for future upgrades.
