Spoke photographer Camilla Stoddart has assembled a badass group of riders and some equally mean VW Kombis for the ultimate New Zealand road trip. Canadian freerider Mike Hopkins, Canadian downhiller Casey Brown and Kelly McGarry make up the riders on board, and the South Island and its epic sunsets seem to be providing the canvas. We’ll have the full feature story in an upcoming issue but for now you can follow their trip on Instagram with the hashtag #passesandbreaks. Or, if for some stupid reason you’re opposed to the best social media app in existence, you can get a sneaky look at all their Kombined photos from the trip right here.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
