WHY IT’S GREAT


The Sesta provides a fast cross-country and marathon bike that eats up distance efficiently. The stiffness to weight ration of the frame is excellent, providing a good platform for the BURST technology to do its job in providing seamless grip, control, and comfort. The main pivot location is designed for modern single or double chainring drivechain configurations, and the overall leverage ratio gives one a responsive feeling, coupled with small bump sensitivity and big hit control.

Pro Tested. Race Proven


The Sesta has performed excellently in the Cape Epic stage races it took part in with multiple top 10 finishes. On the World Cup circuit it has also achieved great results for OMX Pro Bike Team.
The Sesta is the latest full-suspension race machine from Silverback, featuring a lightweight full carbon design.

BENEFITS OF BURST

Burst Suspension:

Branched Unified Rear Triangle Technology. Keeps the rear triangle as one piece with no pivots to break the triangular structure, joined with a single main pivot at the bottom bracket area together with short and stiff linkages at the top to control the leverage ratio and keep the front and rear triangles connected solidly. This setup is light, stiff and strong. This layout has great lateral stiffness when combined with our pivot locations and short linkages. This keeps the frame feeling in alignment under big bumps, hard cornering and rough terrain.

Suspension Kinematics:

High Leverage Rate at Stroke Initialisation - makes for a supple and active platform. Long days of riding are more comfortable and less tiring.

Progressive Mid-Stroke. Helps with big hit control by precisely regulating the amount of travel used - reserving the final 30% for when you really need it.

Regressive End-Stroke. Since air shocks are inherently progressive BURST is a perfect fit - the slightly regressive end-stroke works in conjunction with the air shock, avoiding harsh compression spikes and allowing for full travel usage.

ROCKER LINKAGES


The full-carbon rocker arms wrap around the seat tube, connecting the rear triangle to the shock and seat tube. Their short length means that weight can be kept low while maintaining and incredibly stiff frame.

ACCESSIBLE CABLE ROUTING


Modern marathon and multi-day stage-racing is designed to push riders and their bikes to the limit. The Sesta has been designed with these demands in mind; full-length housing and external routing means that maintenance will be quick, and painless with the bike running better for longer.

MONOCOQUE CARBON REAR TRIANGLE.


The rear triangle has no pivots that break the triangular shape, making the construction as light and stiff as possible, perfect for a lightweight racing machine. A large and round chainstay bridge connects the two asymmetrical chainstays. The left side chainstay has a direct line to the main pivot.

CARBON TECHNOLOGY


Designs for carbon bicycle frames have evolved over the years, and we at Silverback are embracing all the newest methods to produce lightweight, stiff, and strong performance bicycles. Our premium carbon frames use multiple layers of carefully shaped and calculated carbon sheets preimpregnated with resin. The high modulus sheets use nano-resins that have incredible strength at low volumes, keeping the frame weight as low as possible and at optimal stiffness.

RAPID RESPONSE
CHAINSTAYS


Optimised suspension design allows us to use short 442mm chainstays. This translates to excellent maneuverability and snappy acceleration – enhancing the bike’s racing nature and technical abilities.

THRU AXLE


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.

FREEZE STRUT


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 helping to have more consistent brake performance and helping prolong pad life.
