When it comes to suspension hooks, gilson hooks are known for being pretty damn tough. Of course if you put one in front of Supa and tell him it’s a strong hook the first thing he’ll say is “challenge accepted!” So with the help of his Kaptive8 Suspension Krew family, Supa went balls to the wall and did everything he could to break one.
Here’s how the hook looked when Supa was finally finished with it.
What’s important to note here is that 99.9% of suspensions won’t actually involve the amount of stress that Supa put on the hook here. You can also see that even with Supa trying for a hook failure, he was only able to bend it, not break it. You can see more of Supa’s efforts to break the gilson in the Kaptive8 Suspension Krew gallery.
