Who says women don´t enjoy rocking the trails? Not Cube, and this is why they came up with the Sting WLS 120 Pro trail bike, perfectly tuned for female requirements.
With the Shimano 3x10 transmission and Manitou suspension you're sure to have fun both on long MTB tours and challenging trail rides alike. They've updated the size split - sizes 16" and 18" will be 29" while 13.5" and 15" will come on 27.5" wheels - to enable every female rider to find their perfect match.
The well established Sting full suspension platform offers a perfect 120mm of travel, the superior rollability of the bigger wheels and surprisingly nimble handling due to our Agile Ride Geometry. All this guarantees maximum fun when riding and trail performance more than adequate for even very skilled riders. The Sting WLS frame features triple butted 7005 Superlite Aluminium tubes and is very stiff and strong while still being exceptionally light.
Optimum performance and tuneability for every rider weight - that's what the 120mm Manitou Marvel TS Air fork and the Manitou Radium RL Expert shock provide. The high quality component pick continues with the Shimano Deore drivetrain upgraded with a super tough XT Shadow rear derailleur and XT Compact cranks (40/30/22) that perfectly match the big wheels. The Shimano BR-M506 hydraulic disc brakes with Servo-Wave ensure first class braking performance. The women specific CubeWLS saddle, the slightly higher cockpit and ergonomic grips maintain the bikes dynamic character while boosting comfort on those crucial contact points.

Agile Ride Geometry: Cuberan innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details resulted. Increased fork offsets allows for the same trail as Cube's 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. A patented construction to mount the front derailleur gives more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least the BB height remains the same as on their 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a Cube29er or 27.5.
Advanced Mechanical Forming: With their Advanced Mechanical Forming technology Cubecan mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable the manufacture of lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
Aluminium Lite: 6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant,high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
Efficient Trail Control: Cube's Efficient Trail Control series works so that everyone can have more fun on the trail. With 27.5 and 29er wheel options their frames cover the widest range of riding on every terrain you can imagine. The low leverage ratio and linear rate curve makes the bike very sensitive, avoids bobbing and offers full usable travel all the time. Steep seat tube angles and slack head tube angles make these dream machines ready for action on the descent where you can use the full amount of travel to be on the safe side.
Trail Motion Rocker: The Trail Motion Rocker features optimized leverage ratios for every bike and intended use, giving fast reacting yet stable suspension in every situation. The computer-designed one piece rocker construction gives maximum stiffness for the best suspension performance while still being extremely lightweight.
Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. We use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
Fox Customised Setup: Sophisticated suspension kinematics are only able to work correctly if the associated shock is properly tuned. Cube have researched and found a specific shock setup in cooperation with Fox Racing Shox, using extensive testing for almost every Cube full-suspension model.
