Designed by Silverback's top engineers to seamlessly blend form and function.
Asymmetric frame design, shock force dispersion to keep frame weight down.
Bred for the most demanding courses the world over, the Stratos was designed from ground up to trounce any terrain. Asymmetric design dissipates load based on magnitude and position, levitating stresses where it’s most concentrated. Paired with 12-Speed XX1, 110mm Fox 32 and Stan’s Podium wheels, it sets the scene for serious racing. Oversized tapered pivot and Burst Flex suspension with an injection molded carbon fiber linkage makes for an extremely light and agile race bike. Dropper post compatibility for versatility, nothing will be in the way of your success onboard a Stratos.
Interact with the frame
Utilize our interactive 3D visualiser, where you can interact with the frame and learn more about the technologies built into the Stratos.
To interact with the frame, simply click and drag to rotate around the frame itself, you can zoom in and out by using the scroller on your mouse, or you can view preset angles by using the arrows next to the annotation section.
Forces exerted on frames are not symmetric, so this frame is designed to deal with those forces accordingly; braking, suspension travel, pedalling, and bottom out.
The carbon layup design on Silverback carbon frames, are directly related to the size of the frame and the intended size of the rider that will be riding that size.
Single pivot suspension layout with a flex seatstay design. Progressive leverage curve for a supported bottomless feel. Less pivots = less maintenance.
