What do pop singer Janelle Monae, Jean Michael Basquit, freerider Martin Soderstrom, skier TJ Shiller, Scraper Bikes and Tanzanian albinos have in common? They all get the POC mag treatment in this free to view mostly ad-less magazine of the highest quality. We brought you issue one a while back but now it’s time to load up the iPad, snuggle up in bed and get reading. There is so much damn content in here it’s gonna take a few nights.
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.
