2020 Yeti Fox Devo Team Bike
Dillon Santos Profile

DILLON SANTOS

Racer - Yeti Devo

My name is Dillon Santos, I'm 23 years young and love to push myself on and off the bike. I think more so than ever, I enjoy the process of seeking improvement in both cycling and life overall. I started riding bikes a little late, around 16 years old. From there I have progressed quickly by revolving my world around cycling. I wouldn’t change a thing and couldn’t be more grateful to be on a team like Yeti.

DILLON’s Kit

Kit Details

Yeti SB150. Fox 36 Grip 2. Fox Float X2, Fox Transfer 175mm Dropper, Ergon saddle and grips, Shimano drivetrain and brakes, Renthal bar and stem, Maxxis Tires, DT Swiss Wheels, Cushcore.

 Im super picky about my brake bite and pull. I like my brakes to have little throw and lots of bite!  I run my suspension on the soft side. Low tire pressure with Cush-Core is literally the biggest game changer ever! If you don’t have it you should get it! I prefer 31.8 bars over the bigger diameter. Straight pull spoked wheels are my preference since I am a lighter rider I like the flex and compliance! Ive got nothing to hide: ( Fork: 62psi Rear: 155 W/ 1 spacer Weight 138lbs.)
