    To date I’ve recorded 6536.9km during the last4/5years on your Silverback MTB and it’s still going strong, the bike was frequently services and to date never gave me any mechanical break downs, it’s still a great bike to own and its climbing abilities always looks impressive.

    I bought my green monster in January this year and I already have more than 1800km on it. My personality is very floral and girly in the sense of style and I was sceptical to buy such a manly coloured first MTB. For some reason, the colour scheme only enhanced all its great features on the trails. I feel fast and safe while riding. And I am super comfortable. It makes every ride a great experience.

    I ride a Silverback Sola that I bought about a year ago. I enjoy the bike very much. It has made me laugh, and it has made me cry. But it mas never let me down. It’s very comfortable. It climbs easily, is stable on the downhills amd fast on the straights. Thanks for building a great bike!

    I bought a silverback vida 1 in 2013. I did about 40000 hard km on it and it developed a very small hairline crack.
    Silverback replaced the frame with a new vida 1 frame. I was very surprised that they did it after 4 years and a lot of kilometers.

    I will recomend silverback bikes to everyone and my next bike will be a carbon hardtail from silverback.
