Sam Hill - Signature Saddle
Suspension duties are handled by RockShox Boxxer WC up front and a Vivid in the rear. Rockshox revamped the production Vivid’s recently and we can see that the changes they implemented were tested out with riders like Sam Hill.
He’s running SRAM X0 DH cranks and e.thriteen’s LG1+ on here currently.
