It's right for you if...

You're after a practical bike that can get you started out with road cycling. The Strela sport is certainly capable of delivering an excellent ride quality,  and the components, while not as lightweight or aerodynamic as more expensive components, will not be found lacking in terms of durability. 

HYDROFORMED ALLOY TUBING

Aluminium is a trusted frame material that has been used by road cyclists for decades. It is known for being stiff enough for efficient power transfer but also good enough at absorbing road vibrations to prevent unnecessary fatigue. The use of hydroformed alloy tubing accentuates these positive qualities, helping create a ride quality similar to that of a far more expensive bike.

SECTOR COMPONENTS

Most of the finishing kit - seatpost, stem, bars - is provided by Sector Components. Sector is the in-house brand of Silverback, so you won't see their products anywhere else, and it means that Silverback can get you a better deal than some other brands. Silverback, as an overall company, won the German Brand of the Year award in 2016 so the quality of their in-house brands should also be trusted.

GEOMETRY

The geometry of the Strela is relatively relaxed as far as road bikes go. Silverback set it up as an entry level bike as opposed to an aggressive race bike. However, you'll still feel completely in control with the steep-ish head tube angles allowing for a responsive front end.

Why you'll love it

  • Shimano Groupset. Shimano Sora has been the industry benchmark for entry-level road groupsets for decades, unparalleled in durability 
  • Stylish colourway. The dark colours mixed with a splash of blue are subtly eye-catching and very professional
  • Smooth ride. The frame is designed to absorb shocks and vibrations from the road for you, resulting in a smooth and enjoyable ride
  • Compatibility. You will be able to upgrade almost any component on the bike with ease, Shimano and Sector parts are made to be easily interchangeable 

The final word

The Strela Sport makes for a great entry level bike, with potential for you to make your own upgrades on parts. It rides and looks like a more expensive bike, so in terms of value for money, you won't go wrong.
