Cube Stereo Hybrid: Should I Buy A Cube Electric MTB?

Cube Stereo Hybrid: Should I Buy A Cube Electric MTB?

The CUBE Stereo Hybrid is already one of our favorite bikes of the year. In this video, we’re checking out the CUBE Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC eMTBs. We’ve already ridden the CUBE Stereo Hybrid 140 and were extremely impressed. Now we’ll answer the question: “should I buy a CUBE Electric MTB?” by checking out the more aggressive Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 series.


CUBE is one of the few electric bike brands who is still building their bikes at a factory in Germany. They are also one of the few eMTB brands in the United States who have the Bosch Gen 4 electric bike motor. Their builds are unique and CUBE is still a very boutique company which results in higher quality builds and more attention to detail.

Full Specs and how to buy the electric bikes in this video:
Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC Actionteam 27.5 625
Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC SL 625 27.5
Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC TM 625 27.5

  1. I rate the Cube highly I am still on my 2018/19 160 hybrid with 1600km on it. my friends Levo is on it’s 3rd motor

  2. Probably the most uninformed review iv ever heard. Basically just read the box and said it’s good. Ffs have some individual thought and talk about it!

  3. Reihenweise Defekte Carbonrahmen.

  4. The hardtail series Reaction Hybrid is great too.

  5. How about the Cube Stereo hybrid 120 Pro 625. Is that bike good enough?

  6. These are much better value for money aren’t they.. and they’ve got the Bosch which is the deciding factor for me.

  7. I’m the guy with all the money but have no idea should I buy this bike for my first e full sus ?

    Jumped ship from a turbo Levo to a Cube

  9. Since two weeks "driver" of the stereo hybrid 140 hpc action team……….amazing……soooo much fun…….it ROCKS!!!!!

  10. Great looking e-bikes, I need to test ride one asap, I’ll be checking out the 160mm!

  11. I loved these bikes. For me, the TM is the way to go at them moment. I’d love the Actionteam eventually!

  12. Just tested out the 160 TM and loved it! Handling, geometry, range, nimble, power…absolute sweetness!

  13. Good Bikes.

  14. To answer your question: YES! They are nimble and powerful! Come check out this sweet eMTB at Sea Otter Classic this year. I’ll riding around on a CUBE Stereo Hybrid 160!

  15. Lol 🙂 boutique brand with frame per 300 euro :)))) dont ride too hard , bearings will die

  16. These look so fun! The action team has carbon bars?

  17. These 2020 Cubes are looking sick! Nice video man!

  18. 3,000 bikes a day………FFS.

  19. Love the cube! Great work!

  20. 79….. 99….. sounds so cute

  21. I bought a Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC SL 625 29 model 2020 with the new Bosch Generation 4 and I already put 636 km on it.

    Loving it!

  22. Good work guys, loving these vids.

    I’m really keen on the Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC Action Team 625, but have also been considering the Specialised Levo Turbo Comp 2020, and YT Decoy Pro Race 2020. This would be my first EMTB, and looking to do trail riding, and the odd jump and a bit of downhill. Which one do you prefer and would recommend?

    They really outdid themselves with the patented Agile Trail geometry. You can feel the comfort of the design on your way down.

    You guys are acting SICK on those Cubes !

  25. I have the 2019 version with 140mm travel. Have over 1800km in 6 months of driving it. Just a awsome bike from Cube for what you pay.
    Greetings from Germany. Very good video.

  26. Love the 160s! Nothing makes me drool more than Kashima coated EVERYTHING. Couldnt be happier with price point vs spec

  27. super Bike !

  28. Where can I get one???

  29. Deanna Lofquist March 22, 2021 @ 11:04 pm

    Beating the competition with these ones! Action Team is sexy AF.

  30. is this class 3?

  31. These look like awesome bikes. Action team colors are great.

  32. Nice layout on the review / video .. But the camera view was a big no for me.

  33. Nice video,as main 3 things i wanted,1 was kiox,2 motor, 3 2020 model,and as of Dec 2019 only bike out was cube and so i got hardtail as was my top budget and grey and orange nice,and was my first ebike,and then the big battery good to

    I have the action team it’s fantastic

  35. Thanks for this review, liked it a lot, except the gopro shots which should have shown the track and not the ground….unfortunately in Germany only the 160 model come with the 27.5 wheelset, the 140 and 120 (which stands for the amount of travel) come with 29er…

    Finally a review on the cube bikes. This brand gets passed over for any else on 2 wheels where ever I look. These bikes have the best pricepoint for frame and components hands down. Would have been better to have gone to a more technical trail. This was just a hill with some jumps on it. The terrain you rode could have been handled on a bike from Kmart.

    Great video. I m looking at the action team but hesitate between 140 and 160. Which one would take and why ?

  38. DONT BUY THESE CRAP BIKES. Common fault is the frame cracking at lower shock mount. Cube won’t warranty it either!

  39. am in ghana how can i buy one

  40. Finally some love for the cube stereo hybrid!! So many other channels seem to ignore cube as a contender in the EMTB world but I think they hit the nail on the head in just about every aspect with the stereo hybrid series. Just traded my 2019 160 actionteam for the 2020 model and I’ve never been happier!! Kudos to you guys for giving an (in my opinion) underrated bike some screen time!

  41. These Cubes are looking sick for 2020. The price point on the Actionteam build is hard to beat!

  42. Thanks for your review, very helpful! I would like to see the Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 HPC TM version in detail, eventhough the SL has the more appealing color choice.

  43. Give me pls the bike😭😍

  44. Trouble is, carbon frame with only 2 (or is it 3?) Year warranty. My Giant Anthem has lifetime warranty. I mean, how much for a new frame if it goes after that? Not such a good value bike then? My mate’s Anthen cracked at 6 years but replaced no cost

  45. the ones in the uk are different, they’re right hand drives
