Branched Unified Rear Suspension Technology
Efficient Sport Suspension
The BURST system is comprised of a solid rear triangle, kinematics that generate a rising rate leverage to allow for small bump sensitivity and big hit absorption, all which helps keep the frame stiff and light for excellent trail feedback and responsiveness, as well as limiting rider fatigue with the added handling and comfort characteristics of the frame design.
Short 90mm rear travel for Racing Performance
Solid front and rear triangle structures are light and stiff
Best combination of pedalling efficiency and trail feedback
Cartridge bearings and Igus bushings for suspension performance and reliability
BURST (Branched Unified Rear Suspension Technology), as the name suggests has a solid rear triangle branched to the front triangle by two short linkages and a main pivot. This creates a very stiff, light and solid pedalling platform for the rider and for the suspension system to work smoothly and consistently without unwanted flex.
Kinematics refer to the rear suspension and its how the arrangments if it's components and pivots affect the overall ride. There are various factors when looking at Kinematics but we consider the Leverage Ratio and the Anti Squat as the most important factors. These factors affect the way the bike feels when compressing the suspension and also define the power transfer efficiency of the suspension layout.

The IDS Revo suspension platform is designed to inspire rider confidence in all trail conditions, allowing one to focus on the trail with a full sense of security. It couples an extremely stiff chassis with supple and smooth suspension travel, all at a very competitive weight. The IDS Platform excels in situations with rough terrain and pedals efficienly, keeping the bike stable and grounded with great traction in all situations up or down.
Tailored for bikes between 110mm and 140mm
Solid rear triangle design helps prohibit flex
For maximum suspension effiency
Oversize pivot bearings ensure reliability
IDS is Silverback's proprietary trail suspension technology. What makes this system different is that it uses a lower linkage that is concentric to the bottom bracket. This linkage uses large cartridge bearings to create a stiff and strong attachment point for the rear triangle.
