For all those gravity powered riders and BMX racers among you this is good news. The new Leatt DBX range is landing next week in New Zealand. The Leatt DBX Comp is the first MTB specific neck brace on the market and features all the same “neck saving” properties as the rest of the range. These bad boys have been developed in conjunction with Andrew Neethling and other Leatt riders so no doubt they’ll be the business for riding in. Two colours: White and Black and will hit stores late next week.
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.
