New for 2018, Bosch's Intube battery system has enabled our engineers to completely re-think the Stereo Hybrid 140 Pro's frame. By incorporating the battery into the one piece gravity cast down tube, we've achieved several things. First, the battery is protected from water and dirt. Second, we've lowered the centre of gravity for even better handling. Third, there's now room to fit a water bottle cage, so you can stay hydrated on those long rides. Fourth, it's possible to recharge the battery without removing it from the frame, if you wish. Finally, the new down tube structure is superbly stiff. Combined with revised geometry and a more progressive rear end with Boost axle, it makes for a potent All Mountain configuration that's capable of taking on any trail, any time. Internal cable routing - including for a dropper post - completes the kind of attention to detail for which our engineers are famed.
Every once in a while a bike comes along that changes everything. We didn't realise it at the time, but our Stereo Hybrid 140 Pro has turned out to be one of those game-changing bikes - and we've completely redesigned it for 2018. By combining great handling and the kind of trail manners you'd expect from a regular 140mm bike with the power and flexibility of Bosch's drive system, more and more riders are discovering the answer to the question, ''why e-MTB?''. With a newly integrated battery and motor unit, better handling and revised kinematics, the Stereo Hybrid 140 Pro's 11 speed Shimano transmission and smooth, easily adjustable Suntour suspension components are the icing on the electric cake. Try a slice - you'll like it, we promise.
