Silverback Sido 1 by TheOneK

When I looked at this bike for the first time. All I can think was; damn that is one sexy looking bike! 🔥

This is not your average bike review. I’ve previously reviewed the Sesta Pro and Slider-1 from Silverback. This time around, I want to take the opportunity to thank Silverback Technologies for sponsoring the Sido-1 for our upcoming Wine 2 Whales race.

The Sido is an aluminium full suspension racing machine featuring the Silverback BURST suspension. The design and suspension makes this  a fast cross country and marathon bike that eats up distance efficiently and comfortably.

I will be taking part in a mixed team in the W2W Adventure race.  I cannot wait to see how the Silverback Sido-1 performs in this 3-day stage race with over 60 kilometers per day, over tough terrains.
