    Silverback Ladies Design sport focused MTB

    The Splash range is designed for the lady who wants the performance benefits of larger wheels but not cumbersome 29" wheels.

The ladies specific geometry with lowered top tube lightweight alloy frames provide a superb platform for recreational cycling. Together with fresh graphics and contact points tailored for ladies, the Splash 1 sets the tone for mountain biking fun.

    Silverback Ladies Design

    Splash frame is designed with SLD front and center. The frame features womens specific geometry with a lower standover, as well as shorter reach, and a more upright riding position. Silverback Ladies Design means that the bike is set up to better suit women's anatomy and body proportions. This on the Sola means narrower handlebars, thinner grips, adjusted gear ratios, shorter stem and a women's specific saddle.

    RACK AND FENDER MOUNTS

    WHY IT’S BEST.

    1. Ladies specific geometry makes getting on and off the bike a lot easier.
    2. A female specific saddle, to cater for the anatomy of the female rider.
    3. Internal cable routing keeps cables neatly tucked away inside the frame and prevents dirt from getting inside them easily.
    4. Quality Shimano drivetrain and brakes makes this an excellent value for money ladies bicycle.
    5. Women’s optimised ergonomics means narrower bars and a shorter stem, catering for narrower shoulders and a shorter torso.
    6. The 27.5” wheels inspire confidence and are easier to steer for the smaller anatomy of the female rider.

    Suspension fork

    Splash 1 is fitted with an SR Suntour XCM suspension fork with 100mm travel. The XCM is an elastomer fork with preload adjust, disc brake mounts and QR dropouts. It's a basic suspension fork, but works well for the Splash.

    Geometry

    Splash's geometry is adjusted to be women's specific. Shorter reach, more upright riding position and a lower standover, makes this a very comfortable sport MTB for ladies new to the sport.
