After a successful three years on the World Cup Circuit, Solid Reverse Factory Racing sees some exciting changes for 2017, continuing their commitment to developing and supporting talented riders who are breaking into the World Cup scene.

Bad Wildbad, a notorious Downhill track in the heart of the Black Forest, brings Solid Reverse Factory racing back to where it all started. Three riders, all from within two hours of the Solid / Reverse Headquarters – form the DH racing team that will compete in German national rounds, iXS Cup and World Cup events. We welcome O’Neal onboard as a new sponsor for 2017 along with Solid Bikes, Reverse Components, Magura, BOS, SAPIM, and Schwalbe.

bigquotes 2016 was the first year for me riding on the Strike for the Solid national squad. Looking forward to spending nothing but good times with my teammates Joshua Barth and our junior rider, Jan Flor at the races all over in Europe. At the moment I’m living in New Zealand getting ready for the new season I never prepared better for a season than this year. So I can’t wait to get out there with the team and see what we can do at the races.

bigquotes 2017 will be my 5th year with Solid Bikes and Reverse Components! For me it’s great to be on a team with two guys I know so well and enjoy riding with. I’m looking forward to helping push each other to ride faster this year.

bigquotes It’s amazing to be part of SRF! Since I was a young boy one of my dreams was to ride for a big team. Solid Reverse Factory Racing have made my dreams come true. I’m very excited for the upcoming session and racing around the world with best friends and the Solid Reverse Factory Team.

Solid Bikes will be providing framesets, with their newly designed Strike EVO, an incredible mix of durability, strength, and stiffness.

SRF will be running a Reverse Components cockpit, drivetrain and finishing kit setup, including wheelsets complete with SAPIM spokes.

BOS Suspension will be continuing to provide their high-performance dampers for 2017. The team will be running the BOS Idylle Rare FCV fork aboard the Strike EVO.

O’Neal will be providing all clothing and protective equipment for the riders, including their new Element Fr Blocker kit which will also be worn in 2017 by fellow O’Neal World Cup rider, Greg Minnaar.

Magura will be providing stopping power in the form of the awesome MT7 Carbon brakes and Schwalbe will be the official tire sponsor.


We would like to thank all our sponsors for their support for the 2017 race season and we’re looking forward to seeing our riders on podiums across Europe and beyond.
