        Stratos AL uses a 4-bar style rear suspension which is very well known and overall. Our platform uses in line top tube shock layout: this helps to minimize friction of the shock travel as it is in line and therefore has better break-away feel, so more small bump sensitivity and less stress onto the shock seals as the forces are very inline to the shock direction. Also allows for water bottle to be stored lower onto the down tube for lower centre of gravity, and easier fit for taller water bottles. We use fully sealed cartridge bearings at every pivot point, and the seat stay pivots use a double bearing setup for added durability and rear triangle stiffness.

        SUSPENSION KINEMATICS

        The steady drop in leverage ratio helps the suspension to stay on top of the rough terrain by giving excellent mid-stroke support, the travel area most felt by the rider in technical riding. The ratio levels a little near the end, helping to get to full travel with the air spring shock.

        SUSPENSION ANTI-SQUAT

        The low anti-squat helps the suspension stay active over small to medium sized bumps, giving excellent traction up hills and through corners. Combined with the mid-stroke support, the supple suspension doesn’t give way too easily, but allows the rider to pedal through rough terrain while the suspension keeps working.

        POP GEOMETRY ADAPTED FOR TRAIL

        Position-Of-Power geometry designed to engage bigger muscle groups in pedaling, producing more power output for the same amount of input. Longer frames place the rider forward, in a more balanced position, improving grip on the rear on climbs and on the front for descents. A longer wheelbase and slacker head angle means more control at speed.

      • WHY IT’S BEST.

        1. Aluminium Trail frame based on the award-winning Stratos platform. The Stratos AL is designed around 130mm travel front & 105mm rear to provide a little extra comfort with almost no performance trade-off.
        2. POP geometry means that the Stratos AL, with its unique part selection makes for the ultimate marathon and trail alloy crossover.
        3. Stratos AL is the bike every rider can get a massive kick from, easy on the climbs, nimble in the twisty stuff, it is an absolute blast on the descents.
        4. 4-bar suspension gives great small bump sensitivity, climbs efficiently - even fully open, and is big hit capable when you inevitably decide to send it.
        5. The combination of 105mm rear suspension, a 130mm fork, POP geometry and a dropper post as standard is unbeatable on any bike in this price range.

        ENGINEERING NOTES.

        1X DRIVETRAIN SPECIFIC DESIGN

        Silverback fits 1x (single-chainring) drivetrains to as many bikes as we can. 1x offers less maintenance, is more intuitive to use and offers a wider gear range than 3x groupsets.

        ASYMMETRIC FRAME

        A frames’ drive side sees different loading, compared to the non-drive side. Power transfer through the drivetrain is consistent and ramp up gradually. By contrast, the brakes exert sudden and high load during deceleration. Stratos AL asymmetric design is tailored to distribute these variable forces according to its respective magnitude and intensity.

        105mm 4-BAR SUSPENSION

        Stratos AL uses a 4-bar style rear suspension which is very well known and has many benefits. Our platform uses in-line top tube shock layout: this helps to minimize friction of the shock travel as it is in line and therefore has better break-away feel, so more small bump sensitivity and less stress onto the shock seals as the forces are very inline to the shock direction.

        DROPPER POST READY

        Dropper posts give the rider more options and freedom of movement and have become a standard in many disciplines of mountain biking. Stratos can accommodate much longer droppers with neat, pinch-free cable routing.

        LONGER STROKE METRIC SHOCK

        Inline shock suspension position reduces stiction and increases shock longevity. The Long 55mm stroke shock helps maintain excellent dampening properties on long downhills.

        INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

        Cable routing is quick and easy, making installation a breeze. Internal routing keeps the bike neat and clutter free. It also means that cables are protected from impact damage. Full length cable housing also means less dirt contaminates the system and therefore less maintenance.

        CARBON FIBER ROCKER LINK

        Our carbon rocker linkage is stiff and light, helping the rear triangle track straight and limit excess additional weight with its full injection moulded design.

        BOTTLE CAGE MOUNTS

        Easy-access bottle mounts with plenty of space for larger capacity bottles.

        ASYMMETRIC RIMS, TYRE CLEARANCE

        Asymmetrical rims offer better stress triangulation/balance between both sides, improves durability. 

        All Stratos models offer 2.5" tyre clearance for larger volume tubeless ready tyres. This delivers uncompromised tyre choices, to match the terrain demands.
