Today I’m joined by YT Industries’ Product Development Manager, Frank Dörr to talk about their brand new Tues MK4 downhill bike. How do you take a race winning bike and improve on it, with the pressure of knowing you have 2x World Champion, Vali Höll joining the team. How do you balance the functional vs the aesthetic requirements and how do you make sure the bike works for World Cup athletes and regular riders like us. As always, Frank is super open and provides some great insight into how the products we ride get designed and tested. So, it’s time to sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Frank Dörr.
