Features of the Carbon V-10 includes: a 9.5 x 3.0 shock, an adjustable travel and geometry, collet pivot axle system, a double sealed lower link bearings and a hidden greaseports.
Also adding to the Santa Cruz Carbon V-10 is a 150/12 maxle rear-end, an 83 mm bb shell, a 1.5 ht and a lifetime crash replacement plus a 2 year design defect manufacturing guarantee.
