Startup Showcase: Silverback Technologie—Reinventing Bicycles for the Modern Age

Pedaling Ahead: How a German Startup is Revolutionizing Bicycle Design and Performance

Welcome to another edition of Startup Showcase on EUStartup.news, where we feature exciting startups making waves across the European Union. Today, we are thrilled to spotlight Silverback Technologie GmbH, a Stuttgart-based startup that is taking the cycling world by storm.

More Than Just Bicycles: Crafting Lightweight Performance Bikes

Bicycles are not just a means of transportation; they are an extension of the rider’s personality and capabilities. Silverback Technologie understands this philosophy better than most. Part of the Superbike Technologies Group (STG), Silverback focuses exclusively on bikes—lightweight performance bikes, to be precise. Since its founding in 2004, the team, consisting of industry’s top talent in Design, Manufacturing, Spec, Sales, Marketing, and Administration, has been dedicated to the advancement of biking innovation. Their unique approach to design and technology makes their bikes stand out in a crowded market.

From Stuttgart to the World: A Story of Rapid Expansion

By 2008, Silverback Technologie had gained traction not just in Germany but in various European markets. Currently available in 49 countries, the startup’s global expansion has been nothing short of meteoric. A series of prestigious awards have further solidified their reputation. The Eurobike Award in 2012 for their revolutionary road bike design, the Scalera Pro, put them on the global map. Followed by another Eurobike award in 2014 and accolades like the German Design Award and the German Brand Award in 2016, Silverback Technologie has become synonymous with quality and innovation in the biking industry.

Winning On and Off the Tracks: OMX Pro Bike Team

While many companies focus solely on product development, Silverback takes it a step further. Their race team, OMX Pro Bike Team, has been making headlines with significant wins, ranking 12th in the UCI World Rankings in 2016. These athletes, competing in events like the Cape Epic, the World Cup circuit, and the 2016 Rio Olympics, are a testament to the exceptional performance of Silverback bikes.

Closing Remarks

The tale of Silverback Technologie is not just a story of a startup succeeding; it is a story of a brand revolutionizing an entire industry. From its state-of-the-art Operations Centre in Germany, which features everything from offices to interactive digital displays and a cinema, to its relentless focus on design and performance, Silverback is setting new standards in what we should expect from a bicycle. In a world where bicycles often take a back seat to cars and public transport, Silverback is reminding us of the joy and efficiency that a well-crafted bike can bring.
