The mountain bike scene is changing all around us and Chris King has been leading the charge from the get go. From Downieville and original Super D’s, to what the is now the enduro scene, we’ve been racing, sponsoring and cooking food for everyone along the way. This year we are proud to add Conor MacFarlane to our roster. Conor comes from New Zealand and works with one of our key distributors,Wide Open. Check out this video to see him in action.
“I’m stoked to have a big roster of sponsors helping me out this year; I have ridden all the components before through Wide Open so it is great to carry on the relationship and also to have some global support this year. I’m looking forward to a busy year traveling around, racing enduro events, doing some slopestyle events and generally having a good time on and off the bike,” says Macfarlane.
Chris King is providing headsets, bottom brackets and hubs for the Knolly frames. The quality Chris King hubs will be built into the new ENVE M Series rims and will provide the ultimate wheelset package for Conor’s DJ, Slopestyle, Enduro and DH needs. “Pairing the best personalities and talent with ENVE technologies results in increased brand equity and unsurpassed innovation; this is what ENVE sponsorship is all about. Conor checks off all the boxes from a personality and talent standpoint and ENVE product will without a doubt benefit from the feedback that Conor provides ENVE as he rides our M Series wheels into the ground over the coming season,” said Jake Pantone, ENVE’s Director of Marketing.
