They say the heart of a bicycle is its frame, but for enduro that’s only part of the story. For the Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC Actionteam we began with a Fox 38 Float Factory fork – with bigger 38mm stanchions and 170mm travel – and paired it with a Float DPX2 Factory shock at the rear. A matching Fox Transfer Factory dropper post opens up new line choices. Fourth-generation Bosch power makes light work of any climb. Full Shimano XT – including hydraulic disc brakes and the peerless 1×12 transmission – serves up the reliability and precision you’d expect. And we finished it all off with Newmen Evolution wheels wrapped with Schalbe’s Magic Mary SuperTrail and Big Betty SuperGravity 2.4in tyres.
