Santa Cruz Drops All-New V10 29” DH Bike

Yeah yeah, we know it's not bike season anymore, but big news from the bike world: Santa Cruz finally released their drool-worthy V10 downhill bike to the public. We’ve seen it beneath their team riders all World Cup season, and now you can finally buy it.

The bike is available in two options: with 29” and 27.5”-inch wheels, featuring 215mm of trail-destroying rear travel, a 63.3-degree head angle, and a healthy long reach. Both versions share the same geometry but the frames have been specifically designed around each wheel size. It’s a purebred downhill race bike designed to eat up the biggest tracks in the world, and we saw its success in the hands of Syndicate riders like Greg Minnaar, Luca Shaw, and Loris Vergier last season.

For both sizes, two build options are available, along with a frame-only. The lower-end S build comes in at a measly $6000, and the high-end XO1 blows up wallets at $8,200.

In one of the more bizarre videos to come out of the cycling world recently, this biker appears to have assembled a fixie frankenbike for on-snow cycling.  Eschewing the traditional fatbike, this maverick of the bike world somehow managed to find traction on steep and snowy Italian roads with road bike tires.  Does it look like fun? No, it looks cold and shitty. Is it impressive? For sure.   Related: Fabio Wibmer Drops Into Red Bull Playstreets Course

Austrian mountain biker Fabio Wibmer has a penchant for riding his bike places it doesn’t belong. We saw him put rubber on snow last year – dropping into a ski resort from a helicopter on his DH bike – setting a long-jump record on a bike on his way down. This year, he showed up at Red Bull Playstreets, that weird Austrian contest where they turn a tiny mountain town into a wildly creative slopestyle course for skiers and snowboarders.

When Brandon Semenuk dropped into his custom-built line for TGR and Anthill Production’s 2015 mountain bike film unReal, he did not expect it would become one of the most-viewed mountain bike segments ever. Semenuk would go on to produce other mind-bending riding segments showcasing his creativity and Jedi-like bike handling skills, but this one was special.  RELATED: Check out Adolf Silva's Insane Save from Darkfest 2019 The crux for this particular unReal segment was that it was all shot in
