Yes, but brakes will have to be bled again after swapping.
Yes, you can fit a 150mm fork.
The frame can only fit 1 x water bottle.
POP geometry engages bigger muscle groups for more effective climbing, and rider positioning on the Slade improves traction, front wheel grip and bike control.
The Short Chainstays on the Slade makes for a very nimble bike. The forged and flipped yoke creates enough clearance for 29x2.6" tyres on the 430mm chainstays with ample crankarm clearance to boot.
Slade's frame is manufactured from hydro formed, butted 6061 alloy tubing making for a very strong frame. For this kind of application - hardcore hardtail, a strong aluminium frame is a reliable choice. Hydro forming is a process to shape alloy tubing from the inside, using pressurized water and/or oil into a negative mold cavity resulting in stronger thin wall tubing.
Position of Power/ Power over the Pedals. Silverback's POP geometry places the rider in a more central position. Better climbing, more control, faster descending.
Slade features neat full internal routing. The brake follows the seatstay, making this the shortest possible rear brake line route.
Slade frames are internal dropper post ready - and both models are sold with dropper posts as standard!
Tyre compatibility is 27.5 x 2.8" or 29" up to 2.6" wide, giving plenty of setup options and creating our most versatile hardtail ever. 2.6" Tyres are rapidly becoming the final word in trail tyres, offering noticeably improved comfort and grip over 2.3" tyres, but without the weight, rolling resistance and thin carcasses of 2.8".
Both front and rear axles offer BOOST spacing and thru axles. This makes for stronger wheels, a more durable frame, and stiffer feeling bike.
