Spanish, smooth and stylish, Iago Garay takes us on a ride from DH grom in his home bike park of La Pinilla to EWS stalwart travelling the world (including a few days in Wellington before Crankworx Rotorua where he rode some of the gnarlier hidden gems with mind-blowing ease and steeze).
Kiran MacKinnon is a human dyno. When Santa Cruz Bicycles needs to test, experiment and validate suspension then Kiran is the one of the main people we call on to do that work. Not only is he an extremely talented bike rider and incredibly knowledgeable about suspension, but he can actually interpret and translate what he’s feeling in a way that he can communicate to the rest of the engineering team. This enables them to cross-reference the data they’ve collected with real life, on-trail experience to build better bikes and provide the right setup for our riders. We’re constantly refining our VPP™ suspension as well as the damping tunes shocks we spec on our bikes in order to make sure our bikes ride really, really good.
