We follow a lot of up and coming racers out there. We had heard of Dillon Santos through the work we did with Ibis over the last couple of years. Dillon had done a lot of testing on our system with Ibis and DVO. When he moved to the Yeti team, Dillon reached out to us to help him with setup. Since we were out of stock, we just pulled a system off of my (Rob’s Ibis RipmoV2) bike and stuck it on his Yeti SB 150. Then he was off to test with very little help from us. Check out his experience below:
Prior to the test, my basic suspension theory was to try to get the suspension to feel equal and not so fast that it felt bouncy in the parking lot or while standing next to the bike and pushing down on the suspension. Needless to say, my settings after testing were way different.
After 3 years developing this system, we feel like we have riding buddies all over the world. We could drop into any country, send an email, and meet up with someone we virtually know, but have never met. Jono is one of these individuals.
"You don’t realize that what you might consider a good setup can actually be improved by so much if you have the right data..."
The test results lead us to what I thought were some big changes for sure. Way bigger changes than I have ever made on a race weekend prior to using the data.
