Continually refined over the past two decades, Santa Cruz is now on its eighth generation of the legendary V10. The latest version is not only the newest, but the most adjustable with a huge range of tuning options. Coupled with their tried and true VPP suspension, the V10 is ready for whatever trails you point it down.

With three different adjustments with three settings each, the V10 can be tuned to perfectly fit the terrain or riding style. Adjusments include a rear axle flip chip, lower link flip chip, and reach adjust headset cup to adjust fore/aft weight balance, BB height & head tube angle, and reach.

To allow for the change in rear axle position, the bike has a single rear brake mount with a slider to adjust for different rotor positions.

The CC carbon frame features in-molded routing tunnels and carries forward the VPP suspension design with 208mm of travel. However, suspension kinematics have been improved to offer a better ride along with improved frame stiffness to offer better traction across the range of sizes.


Offered in four sizes, S-L run an MX wheel setup with 29″ front and 27.5″ rear. Only the XL size runs full 29″ wheels, though all sizes offer a longer reach for a more modern fit.

Pricing & Availability

The V10 v8 will be available in two builds with DH S or DH X01, with pricing at $6,799 or $8,599 respectively. There will also be a frame only option for $3,799.
