We gave you a sneak peek at Miranda Miller’s Operator CR a few weeks back, right before she headed down to the ProGRT in Port Angeles. Given that the first World Cup of the season has arrived, we thought it was time to show you Connor Fearon’s weapon for World Cup DH domination in 2019. Oh yeah, in case you were living under a rock, the DH World Cup kicks off this weekend in Maribor, Slovenia. Stay tuned to our Instagram Stories for up-to-the-minute coverage.
Now, about that bike.
Connor, like Miranda, will be riding this special Team Issue only color for the 2019 DH season.
SRAM has helped with the theme, providing a super cool red XO DH drivetrain. New team sponsor OneUp will be providing bash and retention duties.

The cockpit on the Operator like Conor’s Process, is now fitted out with Deity Components for 2019. ODI is back providing the most important of contact points, the grips!
Rock Shox’ Super Delux coil rear shock provides damping out back. Connor will be swapping between a 450 and a 475 spring weight this weekend.
Up the front Connor’s rig is rocking the freshly updated Boxxer Ultimate.
Chris King has been providing headsets for the team for a while, for 2019 they have stepped up and are now looking after the team with their famed hubs as well.
Another new sponsor for 2019 is Canadian hand laid carbon wheel company, We Are One, a long time sponsor of Connor’s Gravity Team Mate Caleb Holonko. For 2019 they are providing their rims for the full enduro and DH squad. And yes that most definitely is a Cush Core valve, and yes, there Connor is rocking Cush Core tire inserts.
