Highlights From Cube's 2021 Mountain Bike Collection

Aug 14, 2020

PRESS RELEASE: Cube

Cube revealed its extensive product range for the upcoming season at an on-site Showroom at its Waldershof-based headquarters. The sixth edition of the expo gave dealers a first look at the new Cube models for 2021. This year necessary hygiene and safety measures meant the expo was longer than usual with strictly limited numbers of participants and no overnight stays.

A collection of over 350 new bikes and e-bikes and a huge range of accessories was on display, with the new Nuroad gravel fleet a particular favourite amongst visitors.

For junior riders the brand-new Stereo 240 Pro with 24 in wheels is a fully-fledged full-suspension mountain bike addition to the young rider range.

Included in the product expo were the brand-new accessory products for 2021, including a new enduro helmet, the completely redesigned glove collection and accessories incorporating innovative updates. The Showroom – housed in the specially converted former production facility – provided a unique setting not only for the product exhibition, but also a range of exciting and informative talks.



Highlights:

STEREO 150 C:68 SLT 29



This is it: the Stereo 150 C:68 SLT is our go-anywhere, ride-anything all-mountain and enduro race machine. With no expense spared, we selected Sram's X01 Eagle AXS wireless transmission with carbon crank for the ultimate in precise, quick shifting. Then we added a Fox 36 Factory GRIP2 fork and Float DPX2 Factory shock - both with super-slippery Kashima coating - to deliver the best possible suspension performance. Shimano's smooth, powerful XTR hydraulic disc brakes take care of stopping duties. And a Newmen Advanced carbon wheelset delivers the impossible - very low weight with superb stiffness and strength. Up for it? Because this bike definitely is.

STEREO 170 SL 29



The Stereo 170 SL 29 grabs the big-travel suspension rule book, rips it up and throws it off the nearest available cliff. Newmen Evolution wheels shod with Schwalbe's new Magic Mary and Big Betty SuperTrail 2.4in tyres - and powered by Shimano's ultra-slick 1x12 gears - make light work of any trail, up or down. Powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes help you keep your speed in check.

There's an easily adjustable Manitou G Unit fork and shock to take care of rocks and roots. Powerful Magura hydraulic disc brakes for safe slowing and stopping.

 I like Cube bikes. Most of the time I just buy a frame and then sell the frame and get a new one. I upgrade the parts so i end up with a decent set up for me. Shame there is not a frame only option. Frame only tends to be very pricey with some brands so it pushed you to buy a full build....Just wondering why there is not more frame only options and why they cost so much...

 Not sure if you know about this. But bike-discount.de has all kinds of Cube frames now and then for super low prices. Seems like they barely have anything right now but it changes all the time.

 I think you answered your cost of frame only question with this - "...it pushed you to buy a full build..."
  • 3 0
 I wonder why bike companies don't have the "frame only" option less expensive. There is much less cost of labor to the bike because they don't have to build the bike. I like to buy the frame only as well because generally the builds don't suit the components I like.

 Because there is a mark up on every single component?

 @tacklingdummy: yup I'm exactly the same dude....if I buy a whole bike I'd only end up changing bits...

 @MTBJR: yeh very true It is a shame frame only options where cheaper. If I bought the whole bike I'd just end up changing bits..

 @HollyBoni: cool I'll take a look.

 Have you heard of anti-dumping? If the frame is imported from China and then not used for the complete assembly of the bike, the manufacturer has to pay 50% duty instead of 5%. This is why the Frame Only option is so expensive. Thank you EU.

 @phatcapone: Dang that sucks. About a year ago I contacted a few stores in the UK about a Kona frame that cost $400-450 in the US. All of the UK stores quoted me 750 pounds... Now I understand why.

 @phatcapone: Why such a big duty penalty if it is frame only? That makes no sense to me.
  • 1 0
 @tacklingdummy: Maybe the duty only applies to bike parts and not complete bikes? Dunno.

 Cool advertising bro

 @tacklingdummy: Its about country of origin as a whole. If a complete bike comes into the EU and it has parts from China, TW, Malaysia, SE Asia etc.. The made in China percentage is small. If its just a frame you lose the dilution of the other parts it becomes a 100% made in China product so the EU duties are super high
  • 1 0
 @Swangarten: But the majority of high end frames are made in Taiwan not China. Majority of low end bikes are made in China.
  • 1 0
 @tacklingdummy: Where I live, the anti dumping duty applies to every country outside of the EU (and it applies to me even if I order a part from outside the EU as a private individual).

 @fruitsd79: (n+1)*2

Sorry friend, math major couldn't let that go

Correction:
(n+1)^2
Since n+1^2=n+1

 @rickybobby18: 2n+2
not sure that works
  • 1 0
 @JDugan: That's the correct mathematical answer.
  • 2 0
 I think it would just be n + 2, those other equations would get out of hand quickly. n = the number of bikes you have. n + 2 = the number of bikes you need. (which becomes n and then you need two more ;-) )
  • 1 0
 @aaron270: Coming from that angle, it probably might need to be m+n+1, where m is the number of bikes of DabaZei, n the number of bikes of his son and +1 the representation of "the next bike in the shed".

 I was hoping for a geometry update on the Stereo 150. Still 66 head angle and 477 reach on the XL. Not my cup of tea, but they’re selling them, more power to them.
  • 1 0
 Probably because the bigger hitting enduro stuff is now taken care of by the 170.
  • 2 0
 Ive ridden it. Up to 6'2 it's ok. Above and will become a bit short. But yeah, geo update would've been nice. Climbs pretty good though.
  • 2 0
 Those are definitely outdated geo numbers, especially for a 150mm bike.
  • 5 0
 outdated geometry here we go!

 Remy's cube is super sick. His video the other week was the first time I took a good look at those.

 Dunno what anyone else thinks...but that 170 stereo looks awesome! I'd seriously consider getting one.
  • 1 0
 If they have something to actually sell, they are ahead of the game. You would need to be ordering last week if you wanted a new Santa Cruz for Christmas. Ibis seems about the same, I'm sure there are others.
  • 2 5
 Who wants a Santa Cruz? The most overrated, underperforming bikes on the market.

 Where would someone from USA source a CUBE bike? CRC? or a Canadian dealer?

 Why didn't you mention any of their XC and trail bikes?
  • 2 0
 You mean downcountry?

 @fruitsd79: No, I meant their range of XC bikes and their range of trail bikes.

 Is there a reason why all of the different models are called Stereo? Seems confusing to me.
  • 2 0
 Dual suspension/fully = stereo.
Unfortunately they don't call the hardtails 'Mono' though...

 Just bought a Stereo 170 TM...been loving it so far.

 the stereo 240 pro seems like it would be a dual slalom beast you slapped some 26" wheels on it
  • 2 0
 I don't think 26 would fit the Junit fork. Holding out for a 26 jeffsy.

 I thought the stereo 240 was a slope bike..

 Big fan.
I’m hoping for a new Stereo 120 also.-

 What do you think is lacking in the current 120?

 @CS645:

Just noticed they have the 2021 website up and running.
The 120 is near perfect. It would’ve been nice to have a slightly slacker HA. For the rest there’s hardly anything to complain. That bike is rad. So underrated. Right up there with a bunch of other short travel trail bikes which are so hyped currently..
  • 1 0
 @DutchmanPhotos: just switch the airside to 140mm. Also helps to increase the BB a bit, which is really low on the 120.

From experience that is a good setup for the 120. They should offer that as a TM model from the factory.

 @CS645:

Yeah that’s what I did with the Ibis Mojo 3 and Santa Cruz Chameleon. Works good.

 Just wanna see Phil Atwill on it!

 No 27.5 bikes??
  • 1 0
 stereo 140 is 27,5

 I would 100% get a cube if it was a frame only option.
