Product Description

The Cube Stero 120 29er is a fast and capable trail bike. The full suspension frame has 120mm travel, matched with a 120mm travel fork up front. The Stereo 120 is a goat on the climbs, making short work of technical ascents, while downhill, it boosts confidence with its Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. The 29er wheels are fast rolling and get over large obstacles easier than smaller wheels.

Key Features:

  • HPA Ultralight, Advanced Hydroform frame with 120mm travel for 29er wheels
  • Manitou Markor Air fork with 120mm travel
  • Shimano XT/Deore 2x10 speed drivetrain is smooth shifting
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping
  • Sizes: 17”, 19”, 21”, 23”
  • Colour: Black/Blue
  • The Cube Stereo 120 29er is available with 0% APR finance

A well-established favourite in the Cube line-up, our Stereo 120 EXC is your ticket to affordable trail riding fun. With enough travel on tap to make taming even the toughest of trails a pleasure, our designers have carefully selected a blend of reliable components so that you can concentrate on the ride. Easily adjustable Manitou air shocks take care of rock-swallowing duties at both ends, while Shimano's 2x10 speed Deore and XT transmission components give a superb gear range and easy, precise shifting. We even specced light, tough Answer Atac wheels with super-grippy Schwalbe tyres. It's a package that's guaranteed to leave you smiling, ride after ride.

At Cube we don't cut corners - it's just not the way we do things. But we do cut weight, wherever we can - because it improves the ride quality of our bikes. That's why the Stereo 120 EXC features triple butted, hydroformed aluminium tubes and an intelligent design that puts extra material where it's needed and takes it away where it isn't. This doesn't just save precious gram; it also improves steering precision and pedalling efficiency. And the whole lot is designed around our Efficient Trail Control kinematics and the stable, lively handling of our Agile Trail Geometry. It's the complete trail-taming package - and with out Size Split setup, you're sure to find exactly the right size for your needs.

Full Sus MTB Guide

 

Is a full-suspension mountain bike right for me?

If you’re new to the world of cycling, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our mountain bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

When you’re choosing a full suspension mountain bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you to work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


Suspension travel & usage

Depending on the type of mountain bike riding you’ll be doing, you may want to have longer or shorter suspension travel on your bike:

Travel

Usage

Pros

Cons

Up to 120mm

XC

Lightweight & efficient pedalling for long-distance rides

Short travel is less capable on rough & demanding trails with large jumps & drops

120 – 150mm

Trail

Lightweight, balance of climb-friendly efficiency & rough-descent capability

More weight than a shorter travel bike & less efficient climbing. Less capable on descents than a longer travel bike

150-180mm

Enduro

Capable of covering difficult & technical downhill sections. Wide enough gear range for climbing

Heavier & significantly less efficient at climbing compared to shorter travel bikes

180mm +

Downhill

Designed for highly technical & high-speed descents, with big drops and large jumps

Heavy, and inefficient at climbing. Limited gear range means most climbs will require pushing the bike


Frame material

Full-suspension MTB frames are mostly made from either aluminium or carbon fibre, with each material having its own benefits & drawbacks.

Aluminium

Aluminium is lightweight, stiff, strong, and easy to manufacture. Manufacturers often develop their own aluminium alloys, such as ALUXX by Giant. Aluminium is found on a wide range of bikes, from entry-level & enthusiast bikes, right the way up to top-spec racing bikes.

Carbon

Carbon fibre is lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more expensive than aluminium. The most affordable carbon bikes typically use medium strength carbon fibres, while the most expensive bikes use stronger ‘high modulus’ carbon. Carbon fibre frames are found on enthusiast-level bikes, right up to high-performance bikes designed for racing.


Groupset & drivetrain

A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen.
A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifters
  • Front & rear derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette
MTB Groupsets

Mountain bike groupset components are typically supplied by either Shimano or SRAM, with additional manufacturers like Formula, Hope, Magura, Tektro and TRP supplying brake systems. Shimano & SRAM both produce a range of groupsets to suit different budgets. The hierarchy table here compares the different Shimano & SRAM groupsets to determine which bikes offer the best performance.


Wheel size

You’ve probably noticed that a lot of mountain bikes come in a choice of wheel size, mainly a 27.5 inch wheel (also known as a 650B wheel) or a 29inch wheel (known as a 29er). Although there are still bikes which use 26 inch wheels, these are gradually being phased out on all but the smallest bikes. The difference between these wheel sizes can have a dramatic effect on the way a bike feels and handles out on the trail.

27.5in/650b Wheels

27.5inch wheels are smaller and lighter than 29er wheels, which makes them more agile and gives the bike a more responsive & playful nature. On the other hand, the smaller wheel size rolls less efficiently than the larger size, making the bike more prone to losing speed over rough ground and making it a little slower when climbing.

29er Wheels

29er wheels have a bigger rolling radius which makes them naturally smoother over rough ground. For this reason, a 29er mountain bike often requires less suspension travel than smaller wheeled alternatives. The downsides are an increase in weight, and the larger diameter wheels generate stronger gyroscopic forces, making the bike more stable, but less agile and responsive whilst manoeuvring.

26in Wheels

26 inch wheels were once the go-to wheel size on adult mountain bikes. However, they are now typically only found on the smallest frame sizes, and on junior bikes. 26 inch wheels are lightweight and give the bike very agile handling. The downsides to 26 inch wheels are their poor rolling resistance on rough ground, and the reduced contact patch due to the smaller wheel circumference.


Suspension components

Mountain bike suspension components (i.e. the fork or rear shock absorber) are also a way to identify the quality of a bike. While Fox and RockShox are the most common manufacturers, there are a number of brands producing suspension components for mountain bikes.

Entry level full suspension mountain bikes (up to approximately £1300) may come supplied with a fork & rear shock supplied by SR Suntour, X-Fusion or RockShox. These components will allow a limited amount of adjustment, including:

  • Coil spring preload / air spring pressure adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Rebound damping adjustment on models towards the top of the price range.

Mid-range & enthusiast bikes (up to approximately £3500) use components from brands including Fox, RockShox and Manitou. At this level, suspension components have features like:

  • Preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • Rebound damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position ‘mode’ switch
  • Components towards the top end of the enthusiast price range may also feature compression damping adjustment as well.

Top of the range & competition spec bikes (over £3500) also use components from Fox, RockShox & Manitou, with a few select models using parts from Ohlins. At this price, suspension components have features including:

  • Coil spring preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • High & low speed rebound damping adjustment
  • High & low speed compression damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position 'mode' switch
  • Advanced low-friction coatings (e.g. Fox’s golden-coloured Kashima coating)
