The Silverback 50-inch NXT is pushing the envelope for portable basketball hoops. The advanced technology and strategic engineering of this goal makes for faster assembly, improved rebound, superior strength, unmatched stability, and effortless transportability. Compare the features of the Silverback NXT to other portable goals on the market, and you will see why this hoop is the next big thing in portable basketball hoops. - Stabili-Frame – The Silverback NXT features Stabili-Frame technology, creating unmatched stability for increased playability and added safety. The slanted pole design was engineered to offer even weight distribution across the entire base. Unlike competitor goals, the pole directly connects to the steel frame below the base, increasing the integrity of the structure. Compare to most portable hoops that utilize the blow molded base as a support structure – which is typically the first piece that fails. The shape of the base and the weighted ballast wheels create an optimal center of gravity, ensuring your goal will stay upright. Infinity Edge Backboard - Unlike traditional backboards that are framed by a plastic or metal edge, the Silverback NXT features an Infinity Edge Backboard with edges that wrap around to the back of the backboard as one continuous material. This design not only creates the modern, clean look of the hoop, but, more importantly, gives the backboard unmatched strength – greatly reducing “dead" spots in the backboard that are common among portable hoops. This technique, folds the edges of the material backward, creating a stronger face for superior rebound. Ergo-Move - The sloped base design on the Silverback NXT creates a completely unique weight distribution that allows the goal to be moved by two people with much greater ease than traditional portable basketball goals. This design enables the goal to be tilted backward onto its large weighted wheels, relieving much of the weight that a person must support, similar to the engineering of a wheelbarrow. The hoop is then easily rolled to its new location while the rear kickstand prevents the goal from tipping over. Quick-Play - No one likes long assembly projects, so the Silverback NXT was designed to make assembly as simple as possible. The NXT comes partially assembled with attached hardware, so you simply attach the major pieces using only a few required tools. The NXT allows you to assemble your goal in approximately 90 minutes, so you can start playing.
