NO STOCK - Silverback Superspeed 1
The Superspeed is Silverback's new flagship race-ready 29er carbon performance hardtail.
BOOST 148 SPACING:
Wider hub spacing creates stronger wheel builds by widening the bracing angle of the spokes. Chainstay length is also reduced with the implementation of BOOST 148 for a nimble ride feel.
The flattened off seat tube allows for fore/aft seat post flex, while the oversized downtube and chainstay junctions means the frame is stiff where structurally crucial. The carbon hinge works in conjunction with the detached seat stays, to provide comfort without compromising performance.
Chainstays, top tube front/back and seat tube flattened areas help create vertical flex in the frame, similar to a parallelogram, to increase comfort while decreasing rider fatigue, as well as helping the bike keep contact with the ground over rough terrain. The rectangular tube shapes are wide and flat, enhancing lateral stiffness all round, while giving the frame vertical compliance.
CUSTOM CARBON LAYUP:
The frame's carbon layup has been meticulously engineered to achieve the desired flex and stiffness characteristics that the Superspeed is designed for. Our Frame design uses tube shapes that flow into one another to limit excess carbon material layup by using fewer longer strips of carbon material instead of many smaller pieces overlayed around complicated shapes,...
