Racer-only Santa Cruz V10 29er now available

Developed by the Santa Cruz Syndicate race team, the all-new 29er is joined by a 650b version and new Reserve DH wheels

The new V10 29er will be available to buy in February 2019 after two years of development by Syndicate team riders Luca Shaw, Greg Minnaar and Loris Vergier.

The all-new bike comes in two wheel size options — 29er and 27.5-inch ­— with each frame featuring its own suspension kinematics and geometry.

The 29er V10 first exploded into the public eye at round one of the 2017 UCI MTB DH World Cup in Lourdes, France, taking the rest of the field by surprise and leaving other brands scrambling to produce their own 29er-wheeled DH bikes.

The medium and large bikes share chainstay lengths at 445mm (short) and 455mm (long), and the extra-large gets 450mm (short) and 460mm (long) chainstays.
