A tip of the hat to our trail blazing award winning patented VPP design,
VPP is based on the patented principal of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing us to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines.
Principals are one thing, understanding them are another. What really sets Santa Cruz apart is the deep knowledge we've gained over the years on how to tune VPP into all the various shock, drivetrain, wheel size and travel configurations to create the perfect balance. We don't need to come up with new suspension gimmicks each year. We just keep refining our winning one.
