He's a Human Dyno - Kiran MacKinnon, Santa Cruz Suspension Test Rider 3

Kiran MacKinnon is a human dyno. When Santa Cruz Bicycles needs to test, experiment and validate suspension then Kiran is one of the prominent 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 so 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 and the damping tunes shocks we spec on our bikes to make sure our bikes ride really, really good. This short film should give you some insight into the way we work and the people that do the work to make your rides better. • About Santa Cruz Bikes • Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in 1993 in a space the size of a single-car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz California. Our first bike, the Tazmon, was a single-pivot dual suspension bike that rattled established sensibilities and helped define our then ethos of "simply advanced." That bike was the cornerstone for a brand that was founded on the notion of doing things our own way in order to build the best. We have been rattling sensibilities ever since.
