Silverback fits 1x 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. We spec our 32t 1x N/W chainrings in favour of climbing prowace, over flat terrain top speed. Everyone can benefit from easier climbing. The Expert is fitted with a 1x12 speed Shimano drivetrain.
Position of Power -Geometry designed to engage bigger muscle groups in pedalling, producing more power output for the same amount of input. 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.
The Stride features a class leading frame. 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, minimizing weight and excess material use. All Stride frames are now internal dropper post ready.
Short chainstays coupled with Pop geometry means that the Stride Expert is more nimble through corners, yet retains overall stability.
The Stride Expert is fitted with an SR SuntourXCR32 Air 100mm suspension fork. A suspension fork improves comfort and traction on a hardtail mountain bike.
All Stride bicycles are fitted with Surface quality alloy control parts. This means less weight, and more durability - for many happy trails. Similarly brand name components are chosen for durability and function, meaning that your Stride offers worry free ownership.
Surface Alloy Wheels are tubeless ready from the box and Stride Expert even comes with tubeless ready Maxxis tyres. Easy to set up, just add sealant and inflate to seat.
The Tektro MD-M275hydraulic disc brakes offer dependable all weather performance over rim brakes.
Stride frames are rack, fender and internal router dropper post compatible. Easily set it up for what you need!
