The mountain bike world caught a glimpse of the V10 29er's not-so-humble beginnings at the 2017 World Cup Downhill season opener in Lourdes, when the Santa Cruz Syndicate team put together an impressive trio of qualifying runs on the prototype bike.

Another flip chip in the rear axle alters the chainstay length by 10mm, giving you the option to lengthen the chainstays and wheelbase for added high-speed stability, or to optimize front/rear ba...
