Ok, so this is a roadie themed post but still loosely relevant to MTB in New Zealand I think? Pure Black Racing is setting a new standard for cycling teams (that includes MTB) in New Zealand with their slick team image, business setup and top notch PR. Whilst the Tour of Wellington was going on, Haimona Ngata (who is about as un-roadie as you can get) followed the team and logged some serious footage for an upcoming web vid series. Above is the trailer.
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.
