Worldcup Double Victory on board of a  9-kg-Fully - with Syntace parts, of course

At the CrossCountry-Worldcup in Mount St. Anne (Canada) Specialized-Duo Christoph Sauser/Liam Killeen
raced to an impressive double victory - with almost three minutes on third-placed Olympic and world champion 
Julien Absalon, who dominated the three previous races.

While all other top-ten riders raced on Hardtails, Sauser and Killeen were able to bomb downhill with 100 mm travel front and rear.
And all without weight penalty: Christoph ?Susi“ Sauser’s race rig weights in at a feathery-light 8.93 kg - with significant contribution from Syntace components. The combination of Duraflite Carbon bar and F99 stem is the lightest option to offer full-on race capability combined with stiffness and stress-resistance that keeps opponents as well as our ?Test Monster“ VR-3 at bay.
