Under the radar for many UK riders, this component brand has a choice of hardware that fits the bill for us here at Dirt. We take a look at some highlights from reverse.
German brand Reverse have been designing and producing mountain bike components for over twelve years now, and have a comprehensive range of products. There’s a strong emphasis on hardware suitable for gravity and downhill use as well as lighter weight options to suit a trail bike. This brand sits up there alongside RaceFace, Easton, Renthal and Answer – well designed and engineered products with a solid reputation for reliability and a good dose of style.
With Nico Vink riding their kit it’s no surprise that Reverse have looked to him for input and as such put his name to a signature handlebar. A bar for serious gravity use that will take a real beating. In a similar way to UK brand Renthal, there’s a feeling of longevity in the hardware from Reverse – products that you can rely on in the long run. They don’t seem to be hiding behind any marketing gloss or hype.
Reverse work in close cooperation with the EFBE testing lab and their downhill team – Solid-Reverse Factory Racing.
