Puzzling Ain't Easy
The V10 is designed to be exactly the right bike for anyone who steps up to the start line 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 rider looking for pure speed on the clock, focuses his choice on 29-inch wheels. Luca Shaw chose what feels fun, because, to him, if he's having fun he's going fast, so he's on a mixed setup. Bottom line: your V10 is optimized for who you are.
The most successful bike in downhill history shows no signs of slowing down.
