A 1×12 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain fitted to the excellent Stride hydro- formed alloy frame with full internal routing, The Stride Expert is hard to beat. Tubeless ready wheels and tyres, an integrated kickstand mount, tapered headset and progressive trail geometry completes the very capable Expert.


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 1×12 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.
