Bernard Kerr's Pivot Phoenix DH Carbon

Stylish as hell, an absolute weapon when it comes to speed, and owner of probably one of the coolest Land Rover's we've ever seen - we checked in with Bernard Kerr while he's down in the Southern Hemisphere for Crankworx Rotorua to scope his fresh Pivot Phoenix DH Carbon, which we're sure we'll see getting past 90 degrees come Whip Offs.

    sick build. I think specs should say shock is 9.5 x 3 inch? Not 9.3?
