    Strela Sport - Alloy sport road bike re-imagined


    The Strela range is a great option for those who want a high-performance bike without the implications of carbon fibre. The Strela Sport, sports a sophisticated hydro-formed alloy tube set that boosts pedaling stiffness for efficient power-transfer while still offering a comfortable experience for long days in the saddle.

    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 Sport 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.

    ALLOY COMPONENTS

    WHY IT’S BEST.

    1. The Strela Sport, complete, in a size medium, weighs in at a remarkable 10.28kg - super low weight for a bike in this class and price bracket.
    2. The Strela Sport is fitted with a Shimano Claris drivetrain. Smooth, reliable and plenty of gear options - 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. 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.
    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.

    ENGINEERING NOTES.

    Geometry

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

    Groupset choice

    An efficient, quality, Shimano Claris 2x8 speed groupset ensures longevity, smooth shifting and efficient power delivery to the wheels.

    Brakeset

    Strela Sport 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 Sport uses powerful Shimano Claris rim brakes to effectively do just that.

    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.

    Internal Routing

    Strela features neat internal routing. This sleek solution cleans up the frame and cockpit and improves aerodynamics.

    Controls

    Strela Sport features Surface alloy cockpit components. Lightweight, strong and good looking, these purpose chosen components improve bike fit and ergonomics.
