When you're building a downhill race bike, why not work with some of the best racers out there? Santa Cruz works with the Santa Cruz Syndicate to wring the full potential out of the V10. Did it work? We'll let the World Cup wins and World Champs medals speak for themselves. The V10 CC puts all that tuning into a frame crafted with their top level CC-carbon for the lightest, strongest layup possible. 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 entire bike has been optimized to withstand Ratboy's tendency to avoid the brakes at all costs. Everything rolls on 27.5-inch wheels for the ultimate balance in speed, handling, and course-dominating awesomeness.
