TECHNOLOGIES

GREAT The Sprint from Silverback is the world’s first Sports Plus Dual Suspension Bike Platform with simple but effective kinematics to appeal to the global masses seeking a cool, new, trendy and affordable bike platform.

The Sprint is the new value minded full-suspension platform from Silverback. The custom aluminium frame has been designed to deliver premium features, build quality, and finish at a previously unreached price point. The Sprint frame consists of Hydroformed aluminium tubing that adds strength and durabilty. All Silverback frames are ISO tested and go through international test standards before they go into production and into the stores.

Advanced Ride Dynamics (ARD).Silverback pioneered and perfected the concept of Advanced Ride Dynamics. Applying ARD to the Sprint platform has enabled a spec that blows the competition out the water. The Sprint 29 is the only bike at this price point to feature a 2x10 drivetrain and Boost. The Sprint Plus comes in a Boost 148 x 12mm rear thru axle and Boost 110 x 15mm fork. Boost creates a stiffer wheel build and since it is new technology you will never be short of parts and support.

ESS 
SUSPENSION

Simple and effective suspension kinematics means you get a great quality ride on an affordable bike platform.

ESS is a suspension platform designed to give both efficient pedaling action as well as smooth and controlled bump absorbsion. ESS brings a level of suspension optimization and tuning usually found only on flagship bikes to a value platform. A longer wheelbase means for a more stable and comfortable ride.

Many suspension designs, particularly in Sport models, make compromises or take shortcuts to be able to provide a full-suspension frame. Such compromises include reduced bearings in pivots (or even bearing-free), or poorly conceived leverage curves. ESS uses sealed cartridge bearings at all pivot points, providing a stiff and friction-free suspension action.

LEVERAGE RATIO

Leverage ratio on the Sprint is initially regressive which gives a comfortable and compliant ride. At approximately 45% travel the leverage ratio becomes progressive for improved big hit control and to prevent harsh bottom-outs. The suspension characteristics are optimised around producing a comfortable and efficient ride.

FEATURE

01

LINKAGE PLATE OPTIMISATION

The 3D forged linkage plates on Sprint enhance rear triangle stiffness while enabling the designers to ?nely tune suspension characteristics for fantastic ride quality.

FEATURE

02

CARTRIDGE BEARINGS

All pivots use replaceable sealed cartridge bearings which provide a smooth suspension action, free of friction. A smooth friction free action results in a smooth comfortable ride as the bicycle makes light work of any small bumps.

THREADED BB

A standard threaded bottom bracket shell makes for quick and simple maintenance, and many trouble free miles.

BOOST FRAME AND FORK

Sprint 29 uses Boost 141 x 9 dropout spacing for a stiff wheel and frame to give direct and efficient power transfer. The Boost 110x15 thru-axle fork enhances front end stiffness and steering precision. Sprint Plus offers a Boost 148 x 12mm thru axle system that makes the rear triangle very stiff.

05

X-GUIDE & DROPPER POST ROUTING

Cables are routed below the downtube using aluminium X-Guides for a neat appearance and easy maintenance. Cables protect the downtube from debris kicked up by the front wheel, and cable rub is prevented with intelligently placed cable bosses. There is a hole on the Seat Tube for the use of an internal routed dropper post.

TAPERED HEADTUBE

Steering precision and front wheel tracking is improved with a tapered headtube and suspension fork.
