  • The All New V10...

Description

When you're building a race bike, why not work with some of the best racers out there? Santa Cruz worked with the Santa Cruz Syndicate to wring the full potential out of the V10. Did it work? We'll let the World Cup title and World Champs medal speak for themselves. The V10 C puts all that tuning into a frame crafted with a sightly less expensive C-level carbon. It's got all the stiffness, durability and strength as the World Cup trouncing CC-carbon frame, with just a 280 gram weigh increase. Not too shabby. Drawing from feedback from Steve Peat, Greg Minnaar and Josh Bryceland, the V10 features 216mm of travel with two adjustable geometry positions. The shock rate has been tuned for consistent damping when you're blasting through the rocks at Ft. William or your local track, and the carbon layup has been optimized to withstand Ratboy's tendency to launch to flat. Everything rolls on 27.5 wheels for the ultimate balance in speed, handling, and course-dominating awesomeness. The V10 C brings World Cup performance to the privateer.
