Chris Smith, one of the UK’s highest profile freeride and dirt jump riders, will ride for Corsair Bikes equipped with Marzocchi suspension for 2009.
Chris will be using the 5” travel Konig with a Marzocchi 55ATA Micro and the Ducat jump bike equipped with a Marzocchi 4X WC. Chris will also have a 7” travel Maelstrom freeride bike with a Marzocchi 66 RC3 fork when a little more travel is needed.
Obviously delighted at the news, Chris commented: “I’m stoked to ride the new Corsair Konig. It’s great to have a bike designed purely for the riding I do rather than adapting a bike that isn’t totally up to the job. Also, working with a smaller company will give me the chance to have some input into the bikes.”
Corsair brand manager Dan Jones added: “We’re really pleased a rider of Chris’s calibre wanted to ride for Corsair bikes. We worked with Chris last year when he rode on Marzocchi forks so when the opportunity came to link up again, we jumped at the chance.”
Chris will be attending many events this year including; Adidas Slopestyle, [Braun] 26 Trix, Bike Radar Live and Crankworx.
