STEREO 150 C:62 SL 29
A lot has changed since we built our first Stereo full-suspension bike. But that’s OK, because there’s nothing our engineers enjoy more than the challenge of producing a better bike than the one they did before. Which brings us neatly to the Stereo 150 C:62 SL 29 – a bike that condenses everything we know about building light, fast and versatile bikes into a sleek, elegant and hard-hitting all-rounder for the enduro enthusiast and Alpine-addicted. With its elegant C:62 carbon chassis and ample clearance for big-volume 29er tyres, our design team left nothing to chance. ISCG05 tabs for a chain guide are standard, cables are all routed internally for long-lasting clean shifting, and the whole chassis is designed to accommodate 160mm of fork travel. In the case of the Stereo 150 C:62 SL 29, that particular duty falls to a Fox 36 Float Factory fork, paired with a matching Fox Float DPX2 Factory shock at the rear for seemingly bottomless, smooth and progressive rock-swallowing performance. There’s also a Fox Transfer Factory dropper post with remote control, so you can tuck the saddle out of the way on particularly tricky trail sections. The light, stiff XT crank works seamlessly with Shimano’s new 12-speed components to deliver a huge 510% gear range, while four-piston XT hydraulic disc callipers at both ends give you the power you’ll need to keep your speed safely in check. It all rolls on Newmen’s light, stiff and amazingly strong Evolution wheelset, shod with Schwalbe’s Addix tyres for the ultimate in grip and cushioning in any trail conditions. However steep the mountainside, however tough the trail, this bike’s got your back. Are you up for it?
