        • alloy sport road bike re-imagined

          The newly redesigned Strela range is a great option for those who want a high-performance bike without the implications of carbon fibre. Strela Sports a sophisticated triple butted, hydro-formed alloy tube set with smooth welds, that boosts pedaling stiffness for efficient power-transfer while still offering a comfortable experience for long days in the saddle. A premium SB Carbon fork alleviates some of the road surface imperfections for less fatigue over longer rides. New deep section tubeless compatible Surface alloy wheels are lightweight, stiff and strong, offering aero advantages over box section rims. These rims also accommodate wider tyres, up to 700x32c. The new ergonomic flat top bar also ensures a more natural shoulder and arm position, promoting comfort and control. The Strela range is designed to be inline with Silverback's BIC ethos - offering you the best quality and most bike for your money.

          Strela hydro formed alloy frame

          The hydro formed alloy frame of the Strela is remarkably light and purposefully stiff. This means that the frame is light for an alloy frame, and strong enough to be ridden hard. It features a tapered 1-1/8"-1.5" headtube, Internal Cable Routing and a replaceable derailleur hanger. Hydro forming is the process of forcing tubes into complex negative molds using internally pressurized water and or oil. This creates lightweight, super strong alloy tubing with complex shapes.

          Silverback Carbon road fork

          Strela Elite is fitted with the Silverback Advanced Dynamics carbon fork. The carbon fork further reduces overall weight on the bike, improves aerodynamics, steering precision and ride comfort. With an immaculate paint matched finish, the fork has a tapered carbon steerer and QR dropouts and looks as good as it rides.

        • WHY IT’S BEST.

          1. The Strela Elite, complete, in a size medium, weighs in at a remarkable 10.2kg - super low weight for a bike in this class and price bracket.
          2. The Strela Elite is fitted with Shimano 105. Smooth, quiet, reliable and light weight - what's not to love?!
          3. The Strela alloy frame provides exceptional acceleration and an efficient energy transfer, so you will be able to achieve higher speed with less effort. Strela's very stiff frame also provides extremely efficient climbing capabilities, so you will easily conquer even the highest mountain tops.
          4. Silverback's alloy frames are of the highest quality - backed by our excellent quality guarantee.
          5. Direct mount of the front mount on the frame assures a more stiff and rigid base for the derailleur and enables it to shift more accurately and reliably.
          6. Silverback's carbon fork helps reduce vibrations from the road and improves comfort while riding. The material also enable us to build a fork more suited to the needs of a road cyclist, because it offers improved rigidity, as well as lowering overall bike weight and improving ride comfort.



          Geometry on the mid compact Strela is designed for a well balanced ride - shining on both longer rides and climbs/descents, with great comfort, efficient power delivery and loads of cornering stability and grip.

          Wheels and tyres

          Strela Elite is fitted with a quality double wall Surface deep dish, 700C alloy wheelset. These are quick rolling and wrapped in Vittoria Rubino Pro 700x28C tyres, suited to the Strela's 'do anything' nature.

          Groupset choice

          A highly efficient, benchmark quality, Shimano 105 2x11 groupset ensures longevity, smooth shifting and efficient power delivery to the wheels. Smooth shifting and minimal maintenance is a given when professionally setup.


          Strela Elite is designed to do a bit of everything - well. Going fast and nimble handling is great, but you need to be able to manage that speed for control. Strela Elite uses powerful Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes to effectively do just that.


          Silverback's carbon fork helps reduce vibrations from the road and improves comfort while riding. The material also enable us to build a fork more suited to the needs of a road cyclist, because it offers improved rigidity, as well as lowering overall bike weight and improving ride comfort.


          Strela Elite weighs in at a mere 10.2kg for an Alloy frame road bike. This weight is on a size Medium excluding pedals but including tubes.

          Tapered Headtube

          The wider headtube on the frame ensures greater steering accuracy and better front end stiffness. The increased stiffness is used in order to reduce the flex of the front end of the bike, which the rider feels as a more stable ride.

          • FAQ

          • Can I fit rim brakes on my Strela Elite?

            No, you can not retrofit rim brakes on this frame.

          • Can I use my Strela as a touring or commuting bike?

            The Strela Elite frame does not have rack mounts, so not ideal for touring. But for commuting, if you use a backpack, it should make a very good urban run-around.

          • Can I use my Strela Elite as a CX bike?

            Unfortunately the frame and fork of the Strela Elite is not designed to accept CX type knobbly tyres.

          • What is the weight limit on this bike?

            125kg - combined weight of bike and rider (including all kit).
