Puzzling Ain’t Easy

The V10 is designed to be exactly the right bike for anyone who steps up to the startline with eyes on a podium. The racer who chooses a V10 is the recipient of every bit of work and puzzling that’s gone into the Syndicate’s race bikes.

The continuous fine-tuning that the V10 has undergone with the Syndicate for World Cup season after season has guaranteed regular, high-level feedback. The result is perhaps the most refined suspension performance available outside of a World Cup pit. 215mm of VPP™ travel is exquisitely refined and the ease of tuning and serviceability of the VPP system makes it a hit in the pits with mechanics and privateers.

Wheel size has been the latest puzzle to ponder. Greg Minnaar, being a tall and looking for pure speed on the clock, focuses his choice on 29-inch wheels. Loris Vergier, shorter in stature but similarly looking for efficiency has chosen a mixed wheel setup (29-inch front and 27.5-inch rear). Luca Shaw chose what feels fun because to him if he’s having fun he’s going fast, so he’s also on a mixed setup.

Because there’s so many flavours and needs we offer the V10 in 27.5 (front and rear) in the smallest size up to a size large, both 29-inch (front and rear) and mixed in medium and large frame sizes, and 29-inch only for the XL frame size. So your V10 is optimized for who you are.

The most successful bike in downhill history shows no signs of slowing down.

 

Additional details for the realest puzzlers:

  • Adjustable chainstay length to optimize front/rear balance
  • Lower leverage rate for optimal shock performance
  • Internal derailleur cable routing on swingarm to protect housing from chain damage

Frame Features

  • Available in: Carbon CC
  • Wheel size: 27.5", 29" or MIX
  • Rear travel: 215mm

FAQS

Can I convert the bike from 27.5" to 29" or vice versa?

No, we decided to make two different compromise-free frames. They are not convertible.

Can I mount a chainguide to my bike?

The V10 uses ISCG-05 mounts and fits most standard chainguides. We've been using MRP and E13 guides here, but most will bolt on no problem.

How does the chainstay-length adjustment work?

The bike ships in the short position, and nothing unusual is required for this setting. The brake mount is Post-Mount 180, so just add whatever adaptor you need to make it work for your chosen rotor size (none if you want 180). Included with the bike is a special brake adaptor to adjust to the long setting. This setting only works with 200mm or larger rotors- use the included 1.5mm spacers between your caliper and the bracket if you are using 203. Omit them if you are using 200mm. Once you've changed the adaptor, install the long derailleur hanger and then flip the chip around in the non-drive dropout.

I want the sweet Reserve DH rims that the Syndicate rides. Can I buy them?

Yes, as long as you want 29". We're offering the exact wheels the Team rides, with Chris King hubs, DT Competition Race spokes, and Reserve DH 29" rims. This isn't an offering on any of the complete bikes, only as an aftermarket item.

I want to try an air shock on my V10- does that work?

The leverage curve was definitely designed with a coil in mind, but DH-oriented air shocks will feel good as well. The Fox Float X2 does work, as long as the air valve is oriented correctly. It must be oriented at the 10 o'clock position, when viewed from the rear. Unfortunately, the Rockshox Super Deluxe AIR shock does not fit, due to interference with the rebound knob. The Super Deluxe Coil fits no problem.

Should I get the 27.5" bike or the 29er?

Good question. There's a lot of personal preference at play here, as with most 29" vs 27.5" discussions. As usual, 29" will roll faster and get you a bit more traction. 27.5" will be more nimble and accelerate quicker. Pick your poison depending on what's most important to you. We don't really recommend the 29" bike for riders shorter than 5'7" or so, as the wheel will get awful close to you when you're getting full travel!

What kind of headset does the V10 use?

The V10 is designed to use a 49mm external lower cup, and an internal (Zero-Stack) upper cup. This gives maximum flexibility for geometry-changing headsets without changing stack or BB height
