The Stride Sport is designed for the novice MTB rider. A wide range 1x8 speed MICROshift drivetrain fitted to the excellent Stride hydro formed alloy frame takes care of shifting. Full internal routing on the Sport, tubeless ready wheels, an integrated kickstand mount, tapered headset and progressive trail geometry sets the Sport apart.



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.



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.

    • Trickle down adapted POP geometry means that the Stride Sport places the rider in a more balanced position. This engages bigger muscle groups when climbing and provides more balance, more traction, grip and control.
    • The hydro formed frame is lightweight and features a tapered headtube, full internal routing and a top end fit and finish.
    • 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 fit a 32t front chainring to aid easier climbing as opposed to higher flat ground top speeds. Everyone can do with easier climbing.
    • Stride Sport is fitted with a 100mm suspension fork, great for explorer off the beaten track.
    • All strides come with disc brakes. Disc brakes offer dependable all weather performance over rim brakes.
    • The Stride Sport also makes a great touring or commuting bike, even for winter riding, featuring rack and fender mounts as well as a kickstand mount.
