About

SILVERBACK REVOLUTION® is a new athletic apparel line with layers that perform together to create powerful support without limiting movement through fabric binding friction. The line is pioneering the concept of a “swingchronized system” with layers that glide together to optimize performance. 

When you twist your body to throw an explosive pitch, strike a ball, swing a golf club, train for tennis you need your physical power maximised and your frame protected to cope with the repeated duress the forces of torque impact upon you. What you don't need is the binding and twisting friction of apparel layers working against each other to reduce your rotational mobility. 

Athletes need layers in cold weather training and performance. These layers should be designed to glide with each other to make it easier to perform in challenging multilayered sports conditions.

In Silverback Revolution® you are viewing a unique performance wear apparel system with a distinct trendy fashion that instills in the wearer the sensations of muscular power,(Silverback), and freedom of motion (Eagle). This fusion of power and glide is arrived at by a pioneering analysis of fabrics to align each layer to glide “swingchronise” with explosive twisting athletic motions. The base compression layer offers a sensation of power through compressing the core and supporting the lower back. Coupled to this engineering it is woven like silk in the direction of the rotational glide. This allows  the brand glide polo and glide swingchronised warm outer-layers to travel with the body without binding when they are put into explosive rotational ball striking/pitching rotations in a multilayered environment.

To improve athletic performance through apparel innovation, design, and problem solving. 

Layering up can lead to conflict between fabric layers, increasing friction, restricting movement, and minimizing power. SILVERBACK REVOLUTION® is revolutionizing athletic apparel with the “swingchronized” system. 

 If you have ever played sport in freezing or variable weather from warm to very cold you will know that the more layers you wear the more restricted your athletic movements become. That is until now. I have been on a journey to pioneer a new frontier in the design of sports fabrics based on removing fabric layer friction and introducing glide into the design of apparel. The result is a friction free “swingchronized” layered apparel system that offers greater comfort and increases your arm and body rotational speed when you are fully layered up. I have spent four years perfecting the fabrics involved and the engineering of layers to increase back support, freedom of movement and core stimuli to induce a genuine feeling of performance power. The innovation is realised in my brand Silverback Revolution®. Every layer bearing my brand eagle winged silverback logo is designed to glide swingchronize. 


Whether you are a casual athlete or a professional, Silverback Revolution Apparel has you covered. We offer the best in revolutionary technology to keep you performing at your best when it counts. 

 Silverback Revolution apparel was expertly designed and developed over years of research and development to create top of the line performance with exceptional results. We went the extra mile to not only bring you the best fabrics but also the best designs for a full range of motion for your sporting needs. Each piece is designed to be especially versatile across sports of all skill levels. Never feel too hot or cold or restricted during those critical sport moments. 

 Cold weather can put a damper on sports with athletes having to make a choice between warmth and movement. Silverback Revolution® makes it possible to enjoy the best of both worlds - an outer layer that protects from wind and cold and base layers that enhance core strength and smooth, effortless movement. The Glide fabric base layer offers comfortable compression to support the core and lower back through the repeated force of rotational movements. The base layer glides with the fabric of the brand mid-layer polo/tracksuit/shirt. 

For warm days, this two-layer combination offers lightweight protection to support performance. When the weather gets cold, the Silverback Revolution® jacket adds a warm, non-restrictive outer layer with a lining designed to slip in the direction the polo and vest want to move. The result is friction-free movement so athletes can maximize their power during rotational sports such as baseball, golf, and tennis. Even when there is a chill in the air, athletes can maintain their ability to perform and enjoy core support through rotational sports. It’s ideal for longer games that start with chilly morning air and end with the heat of the afternoon sun. It’s everything you need in performance wear to maintain strength and agility. 

Yes, we are going after the big guys like Nike, Adidas, Columbia and Under Armour to name a few. Our competitive edge is not just limited to our revolutionary and patent pending fabric system of layers. We also pay close attention to design details and test our fabric and styles for performance, wear and tear, and athlete satisfaction. 

My name is Neil Trodden. I am a 56 year old life long sports teacher with degrees in Physical Education, Art and Religion. My life long passion for improving athletic performance is at the heart of the brand. My great love for golf lead me to notice how restricted rotational movement becomes when you are both cold and have to layer up to keep warm. I noticed how difficult it is to twist your frame and swing your arms because all the layers are not designed to glide with each other. I asked myself the question: “why are all these highly technical sports layers polos, vests jackets all possessing the science of breathability, sweat wicking, four-way stretch etc, not designed to glide with each other? Currently a polo is a polo a compression vest is a compression vest and a jacket is a jacket yet they are all worn together but they are not designed to glide with each other. My brand in front of you for consideration is the culmination of four years of relentless sporting analysis into the way layers bind in rotational motion and solution finding to create fabric synergies that remove this friction. I have trademarked the winged gorilla logo to emphasize the apparels system of power and freedom of motion and glide. All layers bearing my winged gorilla logo glide with each other. This is like a quality assurance “kite mark”.To explain the performance impact of my brand I coined the phrase “swingchronization”. My passion for art and design and Greek mythology has distilled the designs into a very distinctive edgy fashion for social wear and sports performance. I have been through a movie script of ups and downs including a massive financial commitment, heart surgery the story line of a lone inventor with an enormous passion. I know sports performance is there to be realised in the pioneering brand that I have created. 

Product Specific FAQs: 

Can I Use Silverback Revolution Apparel For All Sports? 

The current designs are aimed at rotational sports performance and cold weather training:- Baseball, Golf, Tennis. The Compression vest adds posture support, lower back support and induces core strength which can be employed as a multi sports base layer. The future adoption of glide fabric layer swinchchronization into design for many sports is possible as the brand becomes more well known. 

Do You Only Offer Polos Or Do You Have Tank Tops? 

Currently I offer a swingchronised system comprising vest, polo,hoodies and jacket to enable layering up to enjoy your sport in very cold weather. Back the campaign and the outcome will kickstart a brand able to offer a wide colour palette of swingchronized layers including tank tops and sweaters.

Can I Buy Just 1 Layer Or Do I Have To Buy The Whole Outfit For It To Work? 

You can buy one layer and enjoy the benefits and fashion of that layer. You can buy the jacket or polo/hoodie for fashion athleisure wear:- but the glide performance swingchronization will only work if all the layers you wear bear the distinctive winged gorilla logo.

What is the Material Made From? 

Man made fabrics the types typically employed in modern sports apparel.

Do you make a female range? 

We plan to introduce a female range and junior sizes as we roll out the brand.

Risks and challenges

We have experience in producing past consumer products. Because of this, we are aware of some of the manufacturing challenges. Good design takes time and experience which we have. We only expect small manufacturing delays if any. There’s always a chance of delays through customs or shipping. We are in constant contact with our manufacturers to bring you the latest updates.

Quality control is another issue we have faced in the past. To combat this, we will ask for periodic sampling and test out new colors with caution. We know what to look for and how to get there. However, we know that Plan A doesn’t always work and we always have a backup plan.
