Santa Cruz Launches TWO New V10s

Words Santa Cruz Bikes
Date Dec 4, 2018

A project two years in the making, the newest V10 has arrived—but wait, there are two! As we developed the 29er race bike for the Syndicate, it became apparent that not all riders would fit on or prefer the 29” bike, so we made a 27.5 bike, too. To be clear, it's two completely different frames—the production versions of both bikes were developed in parallel, and they’re both the recipients of two seasons of high-level suspension testing and tuning under the Syndicate.

Reserve DH Wheels

In addition to the two bikes, we’re also introducing the Reserve DH wheels the Syndicate have been racing on all season. They’re tough as hell, and carry the same lifetime warranty as our other wheels and bikes. They’re only available aftermarket, and the wheelsets will be built with Syndicate-spec Chris King hubs. The Reserve wheels will be available in February, 2019.

No way around it; those are sick bikes.

The 27.5 brake cables look like they are made from the rubber hose you would use for fuel lines on an automobile. Did Santa Cruz supply that photo?

Woah, this is exciting! I think one of the more interesting new features is the rear center increasing in length with sizes. It's something Norco has been doing for years, that I thought was genius. I could never understand why other manufacturers haven't followed suit. I'm interested to hear what folks think of the new geo. That and I'm really hoping I get to try one of these next year ... PRETTY PLEASE!!

Totally. I was pumped when I saw that. And the length on the XL is proper!
