Description: It makes mountains into molehills. Two years on the drawing board, now fully realized in all its metal glory, the VPP-derived V10 signals the changing of the guard in suspension technology. Everything else just became old news. Featuring 10 inches of rear wheel travel, controlled jointly by a titanium sprung Progressive 5th Element shock and the revolutionary VPP linkage, the V10 smashed all of our preconceived notions about what constitutes downhill performance. Even when running an ultra-plush, mega-Barcalounger 4 inches of negative travel, the V10 still pedals without any bobbing and accelerates faster than any downhill bike has a right to. Heck, it accelerates faster than some cross country bikes we could name. And still devours every obstacle in its path.
Crafted from 6066 aluminum alloy, all pivots running on sealed cartridge bearings, featuring replaceable dropouts (not just hangers, bunky, the whole dang dropout. Shifting performance is key!), with a fully floating rear brake and the best shock money can buy, the V10 is a revolution unto itself. The future starts here. Don't get left behind.
