Santa Cruz presents the new V10.8: beast from Downhill

The new V10 is the result of years of development: Mx wheels for sizes S, M and L | 29″ wheels only for size XL

2023 UCI MTB World Cup XCO, DH, Mont-Sainte-Anne, Quebec, Canada.

During the study and construction process, from 2021 to today, Santa Cruz has moved on to making small and constant updates, experimenting with new things, and finally using the proven VPP™ system.

Thanks to the creation of several prototypes, each with numerous trim configurations, Santa has gradually narrowed down the options, focusing on some individual attributes that have effectively made the V10 live up to his expectations. In fact, it is no secret that the new V10.8 was one of the components that allowed the Syndicate riders to win multiple victories and the victory of the Team World Cup in one of the hardest and most intense disciplines in cycling.

The ideal set-up just a flip chip away

The new V10.8 allows for a large number of adjustments, more than any other Santa Cruz: a flip chip for the rear axle (+5mm / 0 / -5mm) helps adjust the weight balance, a 3-way flip chip for the lower link adjusts the BB height and the head tube angle to balance stability on different terrains and routes and the reach adjustment (-8mm / 0 / +8mm) to find the best balance between situation and riding style . Anyone is able to find the most comfortable and performing set-up.
