Santa Cruz V10 C Zee

The arrival of 27.5” wheels marks a sea change in the V10’s evolution.

In development with the Syndicate since early 2013, Santa Cruz wrung full potential out of the new wheel standard before unveiling it at the races. The restraint paid off, and the new V10 hoovered up a 2014 World Cup title and a World Champs medal within weeks of being released.

Drawing on feedback from Peat, Minnaar and Bryceland on their personal settings, the 6th generation of the flagship model now offers 216mm / 8.5” of travel in two adjustable geometry positions:

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 less progressive than the previous model, delivering more 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 Ratboy’s huge flat landings. The front triangle and swingarm sport larger-diameter sections, but Santa Cruz refrain from the usual drone about the positive effect that has on strength and stiffness.
