      • Splash Elite

        The Splash Elite is designed for the weekend warrior. A 1x wide range Shimano Deore 10spd drivetrain fitted to the beautifully finished Splash hydro formed alloy frame takes care of shifting. Full internal routing, tubeless ready wheels, an integrated kickstand mount, tapered headset and progressive trail geometry makes the Elite the SLD bike bike to beat.

        SLD (Silverback Ladies Design)

        Silverback Ladies Design means that the bicycle is set up to better suit women's anatomy and body proportions. This on the Splash means narrower handlebars, thinner grips, adjusted gear ratios, shorter stem and a women's specific saddle.

        Hydro formed alloy frame

        The Splash features a class leading frame. Trickle-down technology means that the new frame benefits from our leading platforms. The frame tubes are hydro-formed into complex shapes to increase strength and stiffness, minimizing weight and excess material use - resulting in a lighter bike for female riders. All Splash frames are now internal dropper post ready.

      • WHY IT’S BEST.

        1. SLD is designed around the needs of real world female riders, with input from riders.
        2. 1x Shimano Deore drivetrain simplifies the use of gears and de-clutters the handlebars, makes for easier and cheaper maintenance and sheds some weight off the bike.
        3. The fit-and-forget SR Suntour suspension fork takes the sting out of harsh trails.
        4. Splash Elite is fitted with quality Tektro hydraulic disc brakes.
        5. Trickle down technology means that the Splash has class leading features like progressive geometry, tapered headtube and internal cable routing.
        6. Tubeless ready wheels!

        ENGINEERING NOTES

        Suspension fork

        The Splash Elite is fitted with a purpose chosen 32mm SR Suntour 100mm air suspension fork. A suspension fork improves comfort and traction on a hardtail mountain bike. The SR Suntour XCR is a dependable component.

        Adapted Pop geometry

        Silverback's Position of Power geometry. Geometry designed to engage bigger muscle groups in pedaling, producing more power output for the same amount of input. Longer frame places the rider forward, in a more balanced position, improving grip on the rear on climbs and on the front on descents. A longer wheelbase and slacker head angle means more control at speed. Geometry on the Splash is adapted to offer more comfort.

        1x drivetrain

        Silverback fits 1x drivetrains to as many bikes as we can. 1x offers less maintenance, is more intuitive to use and offers a wider gear range than 3x groupsets. We spec a Shimano 1x10 wide range drivetrain and a 32t chainring on the Splash Elite in favor of climbing, rather than flat terrain top speed. Everyone can benefit from easier climbing.

        Low standover

        The new Splash frame is designed with super low standover. This means more maneuverability, easier mounting and dismounting and also confidence both on the trails, or even just standing at a traffic light. And helps to make the bike perfectly suited to female riders.

        Hydraulic disc brakes

        Splash Elite features Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. Disc brakes offer dependable all weather performance. Great stopping power and decent modulation.

        SLD spec

        Silverback Ladies Design means that the bike is set up to better suit women's anatomy and body proportions. This on the Splash Elite means narrower handlebars, thinner grips, adjusted gear ratios, shorter stem and a women's specific saddle.

      • Customer Reviews

        Based on 4 reviews Write a review
        • I am keen to start MTB riding. Is the Splash range a good place to start looking?

          Yes, the Splash is designed to get you into MTB riding. The geometry design and component choices are intended to make for a very competitive value MTB, perfect for an entry into the sport.

        • Can I fit a 140mm Pike to my Splash?

          No you can not. You can however fit up to a 120mm fork on your Splash. 140mm would put too much stress on the headtube. This could lead to frame failure, and voids your warranty.

          The Splash is designed as an enthusiast sport MTB platform - this translates to XC and light trails. Not designed for dirt jumping.

        • Can I fit a dropper on my Splash?

        • Where can I get a replacement hanger for my Splash?
        • The Speedlab.shop has a variety of products and hangers available. 

        • Is there a kickstand that I can install on my bike?
