    Hydro formed alloy Frame

    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.

    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.

    1. Trickle down adapted POP geometry means that the Stride platform 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 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. Stride SX features a high quality Rockshox Judy 100mm air suspension fork, the benchmark in this price bracket.
    5. All strides come with disc brakes. Disc brakes offer dependable all weather performance over rim brakes.
    6. The Stride SX can easily be set up for touring or commuting, or winter riding, featuring rack and fender mounts as well as a kickstand mount.


    Responsive Short chainstays

    Short chainstays coupled with Pop geometry means that the Stride is more nimble through corners, yet retains overall stability.

    Judy Air Suspension fork

    All Stride bicycles are fitted with purpose chosen 100mm suspension forks. A suspension fork improves comfort and traction on a hardtail mountain bike.

    Surface Alloy control parts

    All Stride bicycles are fitted with 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.

    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.

    Disc brakes

    All strides come with disc brakes. Disc brakes offer dependable all weather performance over rim brakes.
