Super Bike Concept SESTA
Silverback’s most premium bicycle range aspires to be the dream bike for every rider. They are light, stiff, forgiving and calculated in ride feel, with excellent execution in terms of finish. Silverback want to give the rider the best combination of parts and frame in the market; a product that applies our ARD (Advanced Riding Dynamics) principles outstandingly, and delivers the ultimate ride experience. These Superbikes were born and defined by speed. Their experience of riding and sensitivity to the bicycle manifests in every chosen part, aiding you to get the most speed out of the trail or road, and most importantly, yourself.
SMART CARBON APPLICATION
By using internal mandrels during construction, the maximum carbon fibre strand length can be used along tubes and around junctions. This ensures minimum material waste and enforces our optimal weight-to-stiffness ratio properties. Various directional layers of carbon fibre used in this manner produce strong, stiff, light and reliable frames.
LOW LINED CABLE MANAGEMENT
Cable routing placed under the down tube is neat, simple and allows for full cable length housing for great sealing of rear derailleur housing.
REMOVABLE FRONT DERAILEUR MOUNT
This option allows one to use a direct mount front derailleur, or to remove it for weight reduction when using a single chainring up front and makes the frame look more aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
Branch Unified Rear Suspension Technology keeps the rear triangle as one piece with no pivots near the rear axle, minimising rear triangle flex and maximising responsiveness of the ride. The linkage pivots are kept close together near the seat tube with short and stiff linkages, maximising the mechanical rigidity for better tracking and overall performance.
The strut not only adds strength and stiffness to the rear triangle while braking, but also, with its curved shape, directs air onto the rotor for additional cooling while descending which helps to have more consistent brake performance and helping prolong pad life.
Rear thru axle provides a stiff and secure fastening of the rear wheel. The custom design integrates a threaded hanger that can be easily replaced should there be damage. The frame supports the 142 x 12mm standard and enhances rear wheel tracking in rough trail conditions for added rider control.
