Stride frame features a gusset where the top tube meets the seat tube. This increases strength on this critical area, especially for riders that will be running longer seatposts or dropper posts.
Adapted Position of Power - Geometry designed to engage bigger muscle groups in pedalling, producing more power output for the same amount of input. The longer frame places the rider forward, in a more balanced position, improving grip on the rear on climbs and on the front on descents. A longer wheelbase and slacker head angle means more control at speed.
Stride Elite SL comes with hydraulic disc brakes. Disc brakes offer dependable all-weather performance over rim brakes.
Stride Elite SL features a brand new frame focused on the sport XC market. Trickle-down technology means that the new frame benefits from our leading platforms. The frame tubes are hydro-formed into complex shapes to increase strength and stiffness, minimising weight and excess material use. QR 135mm dropouts.
Internally routed cables keep the cockpit clean and neat.
There is an integrated kickstand mount in the left rear chainstay. The addition of a kickstand is neat and uncomplicated. We suggest using the Speedkit kickstand for non-e-bikes.The disc Brake calliper mounted inside the rear triangle to protect it from environmental damage, while also acting as a brace, improving strength around the dropout and kickstand mount.
Lower standover means that the Stride can be ridden by both male and female riders with more room for movement. This improves control and confidence on technical sections. Also allows for a longer dropper post to be used.

Short chainstays coupled with Pop geometry means that the Stride is more nimble through corners, yet retains overall stability.
A Tapered headtube increases front-end stiffness and directly influences steering feel and precision. This also means that the Stride range is compatible with all modern forks if you would want to upgrade your suspension.
Surface wheels are tubeless-ready from the box.
