Look what turned up on the courier this morning! Our new Veho Muvi camera kit from FML Interactive Entertainment. This kit is impressive to say the least. The Muvi HD10 camera shoots full 1080p HD at 30fps onto a 5 Mega pixel CMOS sensor. It has an ultra wide 160 degree view angle lens and an LCD panel for reviewing clips. It also comes with a wireless remote and a bucket load of straps and clips for attaching the camera to yourself, bike or whatever you wish. The Muvi Atom micro camera is intense though, this thing is only 4cms long! Its 2 Mega pixel lens shoots 640 X 480 HD video at 30fps. It also comes with a multitude of mounting options and it’s so small you could strap it to anything. There’s even a waterproof casing for the Atom camera. Both Spoke and our brothers over at Manual will be taking this thing out into the field to shoot, so check back soon for some test footage.
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.
