Overview

The Superspeed is Silverback's new flagship race-ready 29er carbon performance hardtail. Our Monoburst technology has the seat stays joining the top tube without connecting to the seat tube, helping to stream the bump forces into the top tube and allow the seat tube to flex a little for added traction and comfort.

Engineering Notes

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.

Carbon hinge

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.

Correct Flexing

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, which increases overall durability of the frame as well as keeping the frame light.

Custom seatstays

The seatstays are connected directly to the top tube, isolating the seat tube from some of the trail feedback. Pedalling efficiency is not adversely affected by the frame’s flex. The seatstay profile is vertically compliant while retaining horizontal stiffness.

Integrated chainguide – 1x optimised

We have an integrated superlight chainguide and 28-40 tooth chainring compatibility. There is no front derailleur mount on this frame.

Monoburst

Seatstays connecting directly to the top tube allows for independent seattube movement. This is experienced by the rider as bump absorption - similar to suspension. Longer carbon sheets can be used in manufacturing, meaning less material and reduced weight. This award-winning Monoburst Technology is seen on the World Cup-winning Superspeed SBC.

Optimized weight

Frame strengthening and weight saving technologies have brought Superspeed frame weight down to an incredible 1000g (SBC Layup, Medium) and 1150g (Carbon Layup, Medium), making this our lightest mountain bike frame ever. Boost 148 hub spacing allows for a stiffer wheel build, and for the chainstay length to be reduced to 422mm. The short chainstays give the bike a lively and agile nature, unbeatable through technical terrain.

Race sizing

22mm has been added to the seattube on all size meaning that you can run shorter seatposts or a smaller sized frame while retaining low standover.

Smart Internal routing

Cable routing is fully internal - internal tubes make threading hosing a breeze. All that is needed is to insert the housing at the marked headtube port and it will be guided to the relevant cable exit.

    Bought the frame separately and had the bike built up to own spec using the following components: SRAM GX 1×12 drive train system with a 10-50 cluster and a 34 chain ring. Fox32 Step Cast Performance fork. Shimano XT Brake system. Prologo Zero saddle. Dry weight came out at just under 9.7kg’s excluding pedals and slime in tires. So far having just done two 80+ km rides the bike feels very good. I like the Fox Lock-out system, as it is easy to use as the terrain varies. The only thing to get used to as compared to my old Sola 1 (2×10), is the gap between the gear ratio’s and loosing a bit on top end speed as compared to the Sola ratio’s. Switching between the Superspeed frame and the Sola there is definitely a slightly softer feel riding the Superspeed frame, thanks to the Monoburst technology. I am not a soft tail person, although already 64, and averaging e.g. 24km/h+ on training rides. I love the frame.

    This is a super bike! It is light and race ready. The design is awesome and feels like a dual suspension. Best hard tail I ever had! Not sure I need my dual suspension anymore. The service of the Cape Town branch is superb. Best client service I ever had!
