Cube Actionteam rider Zakarias Johansen is riding the new Stereo 170 on home soil in Åre / Sweden.

Bikes capable of being ridden at speed down big mountains, taking equally big hits in their stride, used to be one-trick ponies. Not anymore. The Stereo 170 SL 29 grabs the big-travel suspension rule book, rips it up and throws it off the nearest available metaphorical cliff. But that's the only sense in which it's even remotely unruly. Surprisingly light and agile, equipped with fast-rolling 29er wheels and featuring a full 170mm of smooth, controlled suspension travel, it redefines what's possible with big wheels and lots of travel.

 @remymetailler: Figured, I love that it is shown in the video. I feel it's rare to see in an edit unless it's specifically about testing. I'd love to get my hands on one and test, I'm super unfamiliar with coil comparatively speaking. Now I'm going to go watch all your videos again and see what you're running and when you change it up!haha

 Funny concept but the edit could have been tighter. There was a few delays waiting for the rider to come into shot..
