The Santa Cruz V10 is the winningest bike in downhill World Cup history. Born from racing, and more than adept at the bike park, the V10's lower-link-driven, VPP suspension sports 216mm of VPP travel — yet it pedals out of corners and down long motorway sections much more efficiently than you'd ever expect. The sixth generation V10 features a flip chip to adjust the geometry to give you a low and slack, and a lower and slacker setting:
- High: 64° headtube angle / 360mm bottom bracket height
- Low: 63.5° headtube angle / 353mm bottom bracket height
The shock rate has been tuned to be more linear and deliver consistent damping throughout the travel. Carbon lay-up analysis and frame shape optimization allowed for more efficient use of material, and the savings were then reinvested into other areas to ensure the bike withstands huge, flat landings.
The V10 Carbon CC X01 comes with a variety of top-tier options to suit your riding style. Choose between a RockShox Vivid Air or Fox DHX2 Factory SLS shocks — both are paired to a Fox 40 Float RC2 fork for trail-dominating traction across the globe. You also get your choice between E13's LG1+ or Enve carbon rims, which are laced to I9 hubs for the best in rolling speed and engagement. SRAM Code RSC brakes give you loads of stopping power thanks to large 203mm front and 200mm rear rotors, and a Santa Cruz direct mount stem and wide SCB AM Carbon bar provide stiff leverage for navigating the roughest DH tracks.
