The Sterling Silver bass strings I use are Pyramid. Best bass strings around in my view. Their carbon trebles are very good but not quite as good in my view as the Knobloch.
Generally I buy Knobloch trebles as treble sets or alone (eg G strings in bulk). If you want to (or have to, from your supplier) buy a complete set then buy the Double Silver basses from Knobloch. They will be labelled 'C.X. Actives, Knobloch, ACTIVES, Double Silver'. I think their set number is 300CX in medium tension (my preferred).
Given the Pyramid Sterling Silver and Knobloch Double Silver are both very, very good sets of strings, if you want to buy a complete set from one supplier buy the Pyramid if getting the best basses available is most important to you or the Knobloch if getting the best (sweetest) carbon trebles is more important.
