Kirt Voreis has been one of the most colourful people to grace mountain biking, and has been at the top of his game for many years. Not only has he kept himself current with his social media game, but his bike handling skills are still faultless. With an infectious passion for riding bikes of any variety, this video delivers a great insight into what makes Kirt tick.
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.
