Cube revamps Stereo mountain bike range
Cube's Stereo mountain bike range has been around for quite a while but the brand has finally shaken up the whole roster with new designs and geometries, claiming to offer a bike for every rider.

The new Stereo range comprises five bikes, each of which is named after the suspension travel on offer, for example, the ONE22 comes with 120mm of squish.
Cube says that the ONE22 pairs straightforward handling with the efficiency that the weekend warrior will really appreciate. As for the geometry, the ONE22 benefits from a 75.3-degree seat tube, a 67-degree head angle and a 460mm reach on a large frame.
The ONE44 then ups the travel to 140mm. This bike comes with a choice of advanced C:68X or C:62 carbon frames, both of which are built with adjustable geometry and a handy built-in storage compartment. The ONE44 gets a more relaxed geometry featuring a 75.9-degree seat tube angle, a 65.4-degree head tube angle and a 474mm reach on a large frame. That's all with it in the low or slack setting.
Next up, the ONE55 breaks the naming mould a little by rocking 160mm of suspension. This bike gets an enduro flavour with more aggressive geometry and suspension kinematics. Like the other bikes, this gets downtube storage, however, there's an adjustable headset here. Things get slacker still, as the ONE55 boasts a 64.2-degree head tube angle with a steep 76.7-degree seat tube angle. A large frame then gets a 477mm reach.
If 160mm of damping isn't enough, there's the ONE77, a 170mm 29er that can be equipped with a coil or air shock. It also features a range of geometry adjustability with a 63.8-degree head tube angle, a 76.7-degree seat tube angle and a 492mm reach on a large.
Last but not least, there's the ONE55 Hybrid, which gets all of the good stuff found on the ONE55 but kitted with Bosch's CX Smart System motor and a 750Wh battery. Its geometry is similar to its analogue counterpart, as it features a 75.7-degree seat tube angle, and a 64.4-degree head tube angle. There's then a 474mm reach on a large.
The whole Stereo ONE family runs on 29-inch wheels. As expected from Cube, each bike comes in a huge range of models to cater to every price point. For example. the base level Stereo ONE22 Pro will set you back £2,100 while the range-topping ONE77 is priced at £9,000. The Hybrid ONE55 then ranges from £7,000 up to £10,100.
