Adolf Silva and Ethan Nell join the UNIT Family
Posted on June 09 2017
UNIT Clothing is stoked to announce the signing of Adolf Silva and Ethan Nell to its talent-packed athlete roster.
Silva, from Spain, caught the attention of MTB elite while still riding BMX in his mid-teens. His natural skill transferred effortlessly to downhill and dirt jumps where he is now a regular amongst the top-ranked in the sport.
Yet to celebrate his 20th birthday, Silva is heading a new and exciting wave of talent in the MTB ranks, as evidenced by his recent runs in Suzuki 9 Nights, Dark Fest and appearances on the Masters of Dirt tour.
The Barcelona native expressed his excitement at joining the Unit Family.
“I’m stoked to be a part of the team and such a sick brand as UNIT,” said Silva.
“I’ve always loved the brand’s design and freedom in expression, so this is a great opportunity.
“It’s going to be a crazy year ahead with so many things planned, so I’m excited that I’ll be wearing UNIT and taking the brand with me to so many different places and events.”
For Utah-based Nell, riding has always been part of his life, though his original passion was motocross.
With a strong MTB scene literally in his backyard, including the famed Red Bull Rampage, he quickly discovered a love for pedal power and has been on an impressive rate of progression since.
His MX background means he’s not shy of sending it over some of the biggest jumps, while growing up on the unforgiving cliffs that Rampage is famed for means he is super-confident sending it downhill at speed.
“I’m really excited to be a part of the UNIT team and see what we can all cook up,” said Nell.
“The brand has its DNA in both bikes and moto which couldn’t fit better with me.
“Looking forward to working on some cool projects together!”
