Born 18 years ago on the Vancouver North Shore of Canada, Race Face are true Hall of Famers, building their awesome reputation with real world tough componentry that can take everything you throw at it.
These same components made possible the envelope tearing riding and incredible imagery of their sponsored Fro Riders. Progressive pioneers who forged the fun and thrill led freeride revolution that broke the stranglehold of an MTB world increasingly focused on uptight elite competition. Since then Race Face have joined Whistler Mountain, Crankworks and the North Shore itself as household names in any house with a big barred bike and a pile of sticky compound tyres in the garage.
Over the years Race Face have broadened their product family to push the boundaries as the sport itself pushes further ahead. Carbon fibre technology first used in ultralight cross country components forms the basis for the unmatched trail weight/freeride tough SixC series. Alloy manipulation technology perfected over nearly two decades of Canadian homegrown engineering has created the ultimate all rounder range that bears the legendary Turbine name. You’ll also find the Race Face name on a range of technically excellent but casually cool clothing and protective gear that’s totally in sync with the demands of the best bike riders. Race Face is a very proud supporter of the UK MTB Hall of Fame.
Race Face is distributed in the UK by Silverfish. Here at Silverfish we’re really proud to be a founder supporter of the MTB Hall of Fame. That’s because we’re proud of the part we’ve played by delivering the best biking gear from across the globe into the best UK shops.
We scabbed our knees and bloodied our shins while Barrie Clarke proved wheels were the fastest way to cross Wales in the Man V Horse race. We saw the late great Jason McCroy introduce riser bars, tattoos – and let’s be honest – real style into racing. We’ve seen Rob Warner turn from being the first UK World Cup downhill winner to being the instantly recognisable rowdy voice of global MTB TV, and in the time it’s taken for Steve Peat to become World Champion and Nick Craig to prove he’s a perpetual motion XC terminator, we’ve laid down serious milestones of our own.
So here’s to the new MTB Hall of fame and all the inspirational icons in it – long may it continue.
