Marthinus Esmeyer, one of Silverback’s sponspored athletes has been riding the 2012 full carbon 29er, the Storm.
Here’s what he had to say, ” Took it through some very tight technical singletrack where you have no room for error or you’ll… be hanging from a tree. As I said before this must be one of my most comfortable rides ever. The root littered areas of the trail get soaked up so well by the bike, it feels like a full-sus. It rolls easily through rock gardens and over big drops. The cornering is way better than my 26er, even on very tight stuff between trees. Just have to watch my bars. Feels like one has more confidence on very loose stuff due to all the extra rubber on the ground. The difference is nearly like going from a normal bakkie to a 4×4 when you get to ruff terrain.”
Here’s what Jonny Bingham, British/European/World Surf Kayak Champion, Duke of Edinburgh Leader & Mountain Biker, had to say about some new First Ascent kit:
“Great piece of kit for throwing on over my clothes when I come out of the water and need layers quickly. Comfortable and unrestrictive.” – First Ascent Hooded XT-2 Jacket
“The perfect jacket for the many wet days on the North Coast [of Northern Ireland]. I found myself dry when tying boats on the roof, waiting for Duke of Edinburgh groups to arrive into check points or when coaching rugby.” – First Ascent Drylite Jacket
“Use this core layer a lot for mountain biking. Feels great against the skin even after a hard, warm day on the saddle. Nice on its own in the summer or under your jacket.” – First Ascent Long Sleeve Trail Tee
“Lovely coat for putting on over my t-shirt on a cool summer’s evening, wearing around the house or having under my Drylite. I enjoy the way it leaves the arms free to work and yet keeps the core warm.” – First Ascent Mens Core Waist Coat
“My first experience of the warmth of a Down Jacket. Feels incredible and looks great.” – First Ascent Mens Alaska Down Body Warmer
“This is a really practical little sack that is loaded with little useful extras. I’ve found it really comfortable on the shoulders and back, and carries a surprising good amount of kit.” – First Ascent Day Sack (35+5L)
“I am converted to this type of Tee for training. It felt great on the 26extreme 10km on its own, but also sits neatly under a light running jacket.” – First Ascent Short Sleeve Recovery Tee
