Jan ‘Elvis’ Kiliński is one of the pioneers of the Polish dirt jumping scene, with several years of background in Freestyle MTB contests. After a knee injury back in 2007, he started his passion for designing bike frames and parts for Dartmoor as well as designing and building bike courses and promoting Mountain Biking in Poland. He’s been cooperating with Dartmoor-Bikes for over 10 years now.
Being in the heart of the biking community gives him undisputed knowledge about gravity biking and all the growing trends in the backstage of riding scene. Putting together practical experience of riding with Dartmoor Team pro riders and training amateur riders makes him a perfect person for designing reliable and innovative bike frames and parts as a head of our R&D Department. Following our #rideyourway philosophy, Elvis never stops exploring the world and spots around him in search of more and more design and riding inspirations.
Despite bike designing is his passion and takes a lot of his time he thinks that all those toys are just tools for having fun from mountain bike riding which is the most important. Finding, exploring, and overcoming his own fears and weaknesses and riding hard is what drives him the most.
