Product Info

Fulfill your World Cup fantasies on the Santa Cruz Bicycles V10 CC S 27.5 Complete Mountain Bike, a carbon speed machine built for high speeds on the roughest tracks. A completely separate bike from the 29er version, this one's for those of us who aren't as tall as Greg Minnaar. Built with a park- and race-ready set of DH-specific components, this bike lives at the far end of the spectrum--a steed for deathgrippers, blind senders, and the coordinated jersey'n'pants set. A famously smooth and predictable bike, the V10 is more than you need, which is exactly why you want it.

Product Details


Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

200mm VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines.

Fox DHX2 Performance Elite Coil ShockFueled by years of RAD development, X2 hits the sweet spot with its a linear damping profile, revised oil flow, and redesigned seals on DHX2 and FLOAT X2 shocks. The wide adjustment range gives riders the support and grip that the trail demands, as well as a more plush and open feel in the initial travel.

Fox 40 Performance EliteThe 40's GRIP2 damper delivers ultimate performance and control when the going gets rough. Equipped with a patent-pending Variable Valve Control (VVC) high- and low-speed rebound adjuster, improved compression damping and less friction overall, the 40 is just as comfortable in the bike park as it is racing the World Cup circuit. Performance Elite forks retain the same adjustments, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized upper tubes instead of Kashima Coat.

Drive Train

SRAM GX DH 7-SpeedGet all the dependability and precision of SRAM's GX 11-speed drivetrain without the gears you don't use when you're flying down hills. Compact and smooth, everything about this drivetrain has been engineered to get DH racers in the gear they need, without ghost shifting or moving around.


SRAM Code R BrakesetSleek, easy to use, yet immensely powerful. Code R packs a winning punch with a reliable DirectLink™ lever mated to Code’s new oversized four-piston caliper. SRAM’s signature ergonomics are supplemented by the tool-free reach adjust for a fit to each riders’ needs, to unleash Code’s superior braking power, consistency and modulation.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Race Face ARC HD 30 Rims Laced to DT Swiss 350 HubsMade to survive the big impacts found in bike parks and downhill tracks, these wheels are as tough as aluminum wheels come. When the speeds are high and consequences severe, these are magic rings of confidence.

Maxxis Assegai TiresThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.
