Slade is unlike any hardtail you've ridden before. Featuring our sweet spot geometry - POP - to bring uncompromised climbing and descending prowess to trail bikes. POP engages bigger muscle groups for more efficient climbing and the rider position on the bike improves traction and cornering grip. Tyre compatibility is 27.5x2.8" or 29" up to 2.6" wide, giving plenty of setup options and creating our most versatile hardtail ever. 2.6" Tyres are rapidly becoming the final word in trail tyres, offering noticeably improved comfort and grip over 2.3" tyres, but without the weight, rolling resistance and thin carcasses of 2.8".

POP geometry engages bigger muscle groups for more effective climbing, and rider positioning on the Slade improves traction, front wheel grip and bike control.

Short chainstays

The Short Chainstays on the Slade makes for a very nimble bike. The forged and flipped yoke creates enough clearance for 29x2.6" tyres on the 430mm chainstays with ample crankarm clearance to boot.










  1. Slade is designed to rip - this is a real mountain bike, a Trail/enduro hardtail ready to take on any trail that you can stomach.
  2. Threaded bottom bracket - pressfit on a trailike is a no-no. Less creaks, easy to work on and less maintenance needed.
  3. POP geometry means that Slade not only descends and handles well, but climbing is improved as well as balance, cornering grip and traction over technical terrain.
  4. True to Silverback's Best In Class philosophy you'd be hard pressed to find another bike that can come close to this. Considered, high quality frame with a purpose chosen BIC build kit - now that's super value
  5. A hardtail needs a good fork if you're going to push it to its limits. The Rockshox Revelation fork with 35mm stanchions easy to set up, super stiff and plush
  6. It's a hard knock life for trail wheels. The Stan's Flow wheelset is strong enough to take big hits on the trail without issues, yet light enough to use on your everyday rides.

Hydro formed butted alloy frame

Slade's frame is manufactured from hydro formed, butted 6061 alloy tubing making for a very strong frame. For this kind of application - hardcore hardtail, a strong aluminium frame is a reliable choice. Hydro forming is a process to shape alloy tubing from the inside, using pressurized water and/or oil into a negative mold cavity resulting in stronger thin wall tubing.

 Silverback Slade Trail POP Geometry

POP geometry

Position of Power/ Power over the Pedals. Silverback's POP geometry places the rider in a more central position. Better climbing, more control, faster descending.

Innovative easy-route internal cable routing

Slade features neat full internal routing. The brake follows the seatstay, making this the shortest possible rear brake line route.

High volume - 2.6" tyre compatibility

Tyre compatibility is 27.5 x 2.8" or 29" up to 2.6" wide, giving plenty of setup options and creating our most versatile hardtail ever. 2.6" Tyres are rapidly becoming the final word in trail tyres, offering noticeably improved comfort and grip over 2.3" tyres, but without the weight, rolling resistance and thin carcasses of 2.8".

Thru Axles and boost

Both front and rear axles offer BOOST spacing and thru axles. This makes for stronger wheels, a more durable frame, and stiffer feeling bike.
