Specialist Brands

Our brand ambassador program is pretty extensive and gives us a unique insight into how certain bikes behave and how they perform best. Many of our ambassadors have proven this work with successes on the track. Now, for the first time, you can get the same set-up us Enduro World Series and World Cup level riders.

Alex Storr - EWS 36th Overall

UK National Enduro Champion 2021 (U21)

Three years working with Alex Storr with two of them on board the Forbidden has seen him rise from local rookie to full-time pro. After taking an Under 21's EWS win and 3rd in his first full series Alex was snapped up for the Synthesis team. We got to work with some pre-season testing ahead of his maiden season which saw him finish the series in 36th position - and incredible feat amongst the 'big boys'.

Alex has custom built Druid and Dreadnught. It's cool to get an insight into the set up of such a talented rider.




The Session is probably the bike we have spent the most time with.

Initially with Mikayla Parton in 2020 and 21, which saw. her rack up a stack of World Cup top ten's and World Champs top 5!

We then went on to work on the Session with Stacey Fisher. We saw Stacey claim two UK Elite Female DH championships, a  National Champ title and a stack of Work Cup top ten's.

We're also working with young guns Bran Turner and Lewis Carr. Two of the UK's fastest Juniors as they chase their dreams. Watch out for those two!



UK National DH Series Champion 2019-21

We've been working with former UK National downhill series champion Becci Skelton since her switch to Saracen. We've extensively tested the Myst as well as prepping her Ariel for her EWS Master 2nd place.

THe Dyfi Bike Park coach will focus more on the Enduro scene this year but watch out for her being a general idiot on the Myst too. 


Santa Cruz

Jake Ebdon

UK National Enduro Series winner 2021

We spent a couple of seasons with young gun Jake Ebdon. During that time we tested the Mega Tower, Bronson and Bronson mullet. We've also spent time working with his V10. Jake is very particular with his set-up and despite his young age, he has a wealth of experience having raced EWS all over the world and represented GB at World Cup level DH racing.

Our guy Elliot is a Santa Cruz rider too. He's representing the Royal Engineers and is not too shabby a rider! Elliot is your man if you're riding a Santa Cruz.
