Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 Review

Key Features:

  • Alloy hydroformed frame with smooth welds, 65.8 degree head angle
  • Fox 36 Float Factory FIT4 fork for 170mm of composed suspension travel
  • Fox Float DPX2 Factory EVOL shock controls the 160mm of rear wheel travel
  • Sram e-Bike specific EX1 drivetrain
  • Sizes: 16” 18” 20” 22”
  • Colours: Action Team
  • The Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team 500 is available with 0% APR finance

We don't call a bike ''Action Team'' and paint it in team colours without good reason. The Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team has earned the right to wear this coveted name because we're confident it can meet the stringent demands of enduro riding under the toughest of conditions, it looks sleeker and handles better than ever before. The seamlessly integrated Bosch CX drive system and Intube battery work in tandem with the SRAM EX1 8 speed transmission, whose wide ranging 11-48T cassette has been specifically designed to match the torque characteristics of the motor - which translates to incredibly smooth gear shifts, even under power. The Fox 36 Float Factory fork and Float DPX2 Factory EVOL shock deliver smooth, trail-taming travel and the Shimano Saint hydraulic disc brakes have the power to bring all this speed safely to a halt. With Race Face cockpit components, a Fox Transfer Factory internal dropper post and light, strong Newmen Evolution SL E.35 wheelset, it's a factory-level setup that you can rely on to deliver mile after mile of trail-taming fun.

Using the latest e-mtb technology and all the experience gained from building performance aluminium bikes over many years, our engineering team pulled out all the stops for the Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team. Key to the frame's success is the surprisingly light, supremely rigid, one piece gravity cast down tube. Not only is it the backbone of the bike, anchoring the tapered head tube at one end and the Bosch CX motor's custom housing at the other, it also discretely houses the Bosch Intube battery. An easily removable, splash and dirt-proof cover protects it from the elements, but you don't need to remove it from the frame to charge it. There's even room for a bottle cage. The rear end continues the elegant-but-stiff theme with a Boost hub and, of course, all the cables are routed internally so that you can keep riding rather than wrenching. Which is exactly what any team rider would expect...

All Tredz bikes are:

  • Fully built & ready to ride
  • Fully checked & tested by Cytech qualified mechanics
  • Available with 0% APR finance on baskets over £99
  • UK price match guarantee
  • 365 day no hassle returns
  • Free delivery in the UK Mainland on a date that suits you

  • Free Tredz 9 key trail tool
  • Free Tredz pedal spanner
  • Free basic pedals
  • Tredz drawstring kit bag
  • 16 point quality control check sheet

Monster truck

What a bike. This hasn't really been reviewed on youtube/magazines. I'm not sure why? The spec on this bike is amazing for the price. I went to the bike shop expecting to buy a levo or jam. While I was test riding these, the owner of the shop came out with me and he rode the cube. While we were riding back I asked to have a go. The bike felt so much more plush than the other 2. It may be a bit heavier but it just munches everything up. I prefer a bike to have the best components suspension etc. The motor is silent in eco mode, but you can hear it slightly in boost mode. Other riders don't notice it though. The fox factory suspension makes the bike soak up everything. The saint brakes are rock solid. I can't think of any negatives really, just the weight and this really isn't to much of an issue because the Bosch motor fires you along.

unreal bike off road

This bike is unreal off road, made me feel 13 again down the local woods! If your getting on, and not in the same shape you uses to be(like me)! Get one of these, and get out there! Get some fresh air, and get your body moving again! The only down fall is the 15mph limit on the motor assist, it feels like drag and is harder to pedal than a standard bike, when your on the roads, getting to and from the woods/trails! But this thing isn’t made for the roads, 15mph is ok for trails so can’t moan 👍🏼

Electric MTB Guide

 

Electric Mountain Bike Guide

Is an Electric Mountain Bike Right for Me?

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

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


Usage & Suspension travel

Just like a regular full suspension or hardtail mountain bike, the amount of available suspension travel on an eMTB varies with the intended use. Depending on the type of mountain bike riding you’ll be doing, you’ll want a bike with longer or shorter suspension travel as well as components suited to more or less technical terrain.

Type

Travel

Usage

Pros

Cons

Hardtail

Up to 130mm travel fork

Cross-country and trail

Nimble handling more affordable than a full suspension eMTB

Hardtails are less capable on rough and demanding trails with large jumps and drops

Full Suspension – short travel

120mm – 150mm

Trail and cross-country

Well balanced for both climbing and descending

Less capable on challenging descents than a longer travel bike

Full Suspension – long travel

150mm +

Enduro, trail and downhill

More capable on rough, steep and technical descents, including DH and enduro tracks

Heavier and less manoeuvrable on tight trails. More cumbersome on the climbs

Frame Material

Most electric mountain bike frames are made from aluminium alloy, although some are made from carbon fibre composite.

Aluminium

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

Carbon Fibre

Carbon fibre is lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more expensive than aluminium. The main benefit for electric mountain bikes is that carbon frames are stiffer for improved handling.


Drive Tech

Designed to enable you to have more fun on the trails, all of our electric mountain bikes feature powerful crank drive motors with long lasting lithium-ion battery packs and easily accessible control units.

Motor

Crank drive motors boost your natural pedalling power. The cranks are connected to the motor and the motor is connected to the chainring which then powers the bike forward. The bike senses the pressure that you put though the pedals and then adds an appropriate level of power to make pedalling easier. This additional power is delivered seamlessly, and you will feel like your legs have just become much more powerful. Motors all have a nominal 250w output and are usually provided by big component manufacturers like Bosch, Shimano, Yamaha and Brose.

Battery

Easily charged either on or off the bike the lithium-ion battery pack will offer you long lasting assistance. Where and how you ride will make a big difference to the range that you can expect to achieve from a single charge, but most e bikers find the capacity of these batteries to be more than sufficient. Some brands offer innovative ways to integrate the battery within the frame. 400Wh or 500Wh batteries are most common.

Illustration showing a battery mounted to a ebike frame

Control Units

All electric mountain bikes allow you to adjust the amount of power the motor delivers. This helps to help you manage the battery capacity. Control units have some kind of display that, at the very least, shows remaining battery capacity and the current power mode. Some control units feature a handlebar mounted display unit that displays additional information like estimated range and satellite navigation prompts. Many eMTBs offer Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity with smartphone apps for fine tuning the motor output and accessing more advanced features.

Groupset

An electric mountain bike’s groupset, 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
  • Shifter
  • Derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette

Electric mountain bike groupset components are typically supplied by either Shimano or SRAM, sometimes with additional manufacturers like Magura, Tektro and TRP supplying brake systems. You will mostly find one-by drivetrains with a single front chainring and a wide range rear cassette.

Shimano and SRAM both produce a range of groupsets to suit different budgets. The hierarchy table here compares the different Shimano and SRAM groupsets to determine which bikes offer the best performance.

Wheel Size

Just like regular mountain bikes, e MTBs are available with different wheel sizes. 27.5” (650b) and 29” wheels are both available but the most common e MTB size is 27.5”+ (6fattie) that bridges the gap between the two.

MTB wheel sizes

27.5” (650b) wheels strike the ideal balance between fast rolling and nimble handling. They are lighter than 29” wheels so are faster to accelerate. 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.

29” wheels roll fastest but are less nimble. These wheels are naturally smoother over rough ground but are heavier and slower to accelerate. Larger riders may find a better fit on a 29er, but smaller riders may find 29” wheels a little cumbersome.

27.5+ (6fattie) wheels feature wider 2.8” – 3.0” tyres and offer more cushioning (float) as well as more grip. With the extra size of the high-volume tyres, the overall wheel diameter is similar to a 29er, so these wheels carry speed very well on rough ground. Plus sized wheels are ideal for electric mountain bikes as they deal best with the extra weight of the motor and battery, and are great for riding more challenging terrain.


Suspension components

Electric 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 eMTBs

Entry level electric mountain bikes (up to approximately £2,500) may come supplied with a fork and 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 and enthusiast eMTBs

Mid-range and enthusiast eMTBs (up to approximately £5,000) 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
  • Compression damping adjustment
Top of the range eMTBs

Top of the range electric bikes (over £5,000) also use components from Fox, RockShox and Manitou, with a few select models using parts from high-end suspension brands like Ohlins. At this price, suspension components have features including:

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