The Perfect Line boys and Kieran Bennett bring it with this clip that should get you pumped on riding in Christchurch! Kieran Bennett knows how to handle a bike. Downhill, Enduro, or Moto, no problem. His fast, smooth-flowing, pinpoint accuracy and hard working attitude recently led him to his first DH nationals round win this year in Nelson, New Zealand. He was up against some of the world’s top riders including Sam Blenkinsop, Cam Cole, and Nick Beer – proving he has what it takes to mix with the best. Watch him lay down some amazing style here in his ‘off’ season clip.
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.
