Janek Kilinski - Dartmoorteam




Jan 'Elvis' Kiliński, an authentic Polish dirt jumping scene pioneer, boasts a rich history in Freestyle MTB contests. Following a knee injury in 2007, he channeled his passion into designing bike frames and parts for Dartmoor, creating bike courses, and promoting Mountain Biking in Poland. His collaboration with Dartmoor-Bikes spans over a decade and thrives! 
Immersed in the biking community, Elvis possesses unmatched insights into gravity biking and emerging trends. With practical experience from riding alongside Dartmoor Team pros and coaching amateur riders, he's the ideal leader for our R&D Department, crafting dependable and innovative bike frames and parts. As a founder of the Dirt it More group, he focuses on growing the scene while maintaining the OG status.
But don't get it twisted – even though he's a bike design whiz, Elvis never forgets that these machines are just tools for having a blast on the trails. Janek loves his Thunderbird CF and E-Thunderbird while pushing the Rocbird development further! His true passion lies in the thrill of discovery, tackling his fears, pushing his limits, and getting down and dirty with some rad riding.

No results are needed to prove his passion.
