Hyper Bicycles is proud to announce the addition of Cam Zink and Pablo Tafoya to the Hyper Bicycles Family! Hyper has officially purchased Tafoya's designs that were previously manufactured under the Corsair moniker, the same bikes that Zink had his 2010 dream season on, winning both the Red Bull Rampage and Kokanee Crankworx to clinch the overall FMB World Championship.
|Cam is a two time Crankworx Slope style Champion and this year's defending champion for Red Bull Rampage. We are very happy to have Cam joining Hyper at a time when he is competing at such a high level and able to assist us in critical product development. - Eric Carter, Hyper Bicycle Brand Manager|
|I am speechless. In 2010 I rode to my best season ever, accomplishing all my goals aboard bikes designed by Pablo. It is a miracle and almost too good to be true how things worked out on this amazing partnership with Hyper. The bikes are already Rampage, Crankworx and FMB World Championship proven winning designs and I am ecstatic to be back on them. - Cam Zink|
Equally comfortable on a hardtail, slopestyle, all mountain or DH bike, Cam is a perfect fit for Hyper’s goals for the new high end line of mountain bikes. Cam’s throw caution to the wind, go for it attitude is always a crowd favorite, and you know when Cam is dropping in something big is going to go down.
Look for Cam on his Hyper 'Cam Zink' Pro Model frame at FMB freeride events, Crankworx, Red Bull Rampage and the highly anticipated film premier of Where the Trail Ends at 2012 Interbike.
After testing the products and being very impressed with the performance of Pablo’s current designs, Hyper has reached an agreement with Designer Pablo Tafoya to utilize his UNIT™ suspension system as well as continued development on future Hyper models. The UNIT™ system is the same design that Cam has piloted to victories at Crankworx and Red Bull Rampage, and it only made sense to keep this winning formula together.
|We tested many different designs to make sure we bring the best possible product to Hyper Bicycles riders. Pablo's concepts and designs are unique, innovative and fit into the Hyper Bicycles mindset of value based performance and getting more people on bikes. The adjustability of Pablo's design features speaks volumes toward his thought process: developing products that are consumer friendly without compromising performance or having to mortgage the house to ride your bike. Pablo is a skilled rider who has the ability to test as well as design high performance bicycle products, which is an important factor for Hyper in the development process, and lends a lot of credibility to Hyper's new high end line of mountain bikes. - Eric Carter, Hyper Bicycle Brand Manager|
|So stoked! What an opportunity to help create the wave of progression that Cam and EC bring to this sport. To connect Hyper with Cam's dream-season results and EC's World Championship experience to the riders of the future is going to be so inspiring and fun. - Pablo Tafoya|
Hyper boss Clay Goldsmid is equally enthusiastic about working with two key players in the world of Mountain Biking:
|Product development leading to Championship results has always been our goal at Hyper. The additions of Cam and Pablo to the Hyper Mountain Bike Program give us two more key elements in reaching that goal. - Clay Goldsmid, CEO, Hyper Bicycle|
Watch for Cam and the Hyper MTB Race Team at competitions, and expect more exciting product news as Pablo continues development on his already successful designs. Hyper Bicycles
