    1x drivetrain

    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.

    Pop geometry

    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.

    Pop geometry

    WHY IT’S BEST.

    1. Trickle down adapted POP geometry means that the Stride Expert places the rider in a more balanced position. This engages bigger muscle groups when climbing and provides more balance, more traction, grip and control.
    2. The hydro formed frame is lightweight and features a tapered headtube, full internal routing and a top end fit and finish.
    3. 1x 12 drivetrain simplifies the use of gears and de-clutters the handlebars, makes for easier and cheaper maintenance and sheds some weight off the bike. We run a 32t front chainring to aid easier climbing as opposed to higher flat ground top speeds. Everyone can do with easier climbing.
    4. Surface alloy crankset with n/w chainring is lightweight and high quality.
    5. Tubeless ready Maxxis tyres complete a tubeless ready wheelset.
    6. The Stride Expert is internal dropper post ready!
