Cube Sting WLS 140 SL Full Suspension Bike

The Sting WLS 140 SL Full Suspension Bike is the ultimate all mountain machine for female trail warriors. Built around the 27.5" wheel size with an emphasis on high-quality equipment, it blends maximum trail fun with almost limitless potential for every kind of riding from fast rides to epic days out in the mountains. Just like your best friend, this is a bike that won't let you down.

Comfortable and Responsive Aluminium Frame

Cube has thrown everything they know about aluminium frame construction at the Sting WLS 140 SL Full Suspension Bike. That's why it features a triple butted tubeset, complex hydroforming, a tapered headtube, PressFit bottom bracket, X12 Adaptable dropout and internally routed cables. Agile Ride Geometry and Efficient Trail Control suspension design work together to make a bike that's lightning-fast but with real reserves of strength. The forged Trail Motion Rocker linkage and strongly sloping top tube aren't just there for dynamic good looks - they also improve standover clearance and trail manouevrability.

Reliable Components

A bike with such amazing trail potential deserves the right equipment. Fox's 34 Float air suspension fork - with 15mm quick release axle - and Float DPS Evol rear shock - with 140mm travel - work together to provide easy adjustment and superb comfort and control on the trail. The Shimano 2x11-speed XT groupset delivers optimum gear and brake performance, even in the most difficult conditions. Fulcrum Red Power wheels combine high stability and low weight for easy climbing and huge fun on descents. The cockpit is specially adapted to female ergonomics, with a comfortable and high performance SDG saddle. The Cube dropper post ensures the best mobililty in tricky trail situations.

Technologies:

  • Adaptable X12 Hanger: Cube optimised its new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. Cube can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
  • Aluminium Ultralite:Very high tensile strength heat-treated 7005 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. Our Superlite tubes are triple butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
  • High Performance Aluminium: For Cube's high-end bikes they have use High Performance 7005 Aluminium alloy which has a very low density combined with high strength due to the alloy elements and the hardening heat treatment. By triple butting or even quadruple butting to give different wall thicknesses in one tube, aluminium tubes are reinforced where required and made lighter where possible. In this way, Cube succeed in getting material where it is needed most. In addition, they use special tube shapes, manufactured with hydroforming technology to better cope with directional forces. The low density and high strength as well as the butting and the hydroforming technology enable them to make high-performance frames with an ultimate level of stiffness..
  • Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in its series of big wheel bikes. It also added the 27.5" wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let Cube achieve the same trail as its 26" bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly it shortened the chainstays without compromising the seat angle. Cube invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give it more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least, it kept the BB height the same as on its 26" bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a Cube 29er or 27.5" bike.
  • Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
  • Press Fit BB: With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows Cube to build a wider downtube and more broadly spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
  • Stealth Ready: Dropper seatposts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame, if not required, will be sealed with a cover for protection.
  • Woman Like Series: New WLS models come with different wheel sizes for different frame heights. The 14 and 16" frames have 27.5" wheels, the 17,19 and 21" frames are built as 29ers. Depending on body height, every woman gets the perfect riding character and geometry. The models of Cube's Woman Like Series feature a compact frame geometry with shorter top tubes and longer headtubes, giving a riding position that is more upright than on the men’s models. This riding position relieves the pelvis and offers more comfort. The top tubes of the WLS mountain bikes are lowered, making the bike more comfortable and safe to mount and dismount.
  • 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 headtube 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 optimised 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.

Easy Assembly

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
