Santa Cruz Bicycles has created a limited run of V10s in celebration of Greg Minnaar’s third World Championship title on this home track in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.
Only 25 signature V10s have been made – two of which were already spoken for following the unveiling at the Santa Cruz holiday party on Saturday.
While Minnaar rides an XL, Santa Cruz is offering the V10 replica in four sizes, from small to extra large. Aside from sizing, the frame and build kits are nearly identical to that used by the South African racer. The frame, ENVE rims and WTB saddle sport unique South African-inspired decals. Other custom touches include an 808mm-wide special edition ENVE ‘Minnaarbar’ carbon handlebar and a chopped Shimano seven-speed 11-19T cassette.
