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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
