The 2011 Santa Cruz V10 Carbon Syndicate team downhill bike was the pinnacle of technology in its day. Full carbon main frame with an aluminum rear triangle for stiffness. 40mil Boxxer long travel fork with adjustable angle headset. Adjustible rear suspension from 8.5-10". SRAM X0 10 speed derailleur on 26" wheels.
This medium frame version was sourced from the Pro's Closet and is in great condition. The frame has a few scuffs but the bike has plenty of life in it and is fully capable. It looked to us like a great candidate for an eBike conversion.
This eV10 has been converted to electric with a 52V, 15Ah battery pack using Samsung 21750 50E cells and a CYC Photon 1200W motor kit incorporating their torque sensing bottom bracket, a minimalist SW102 B&W display with integreated power level controls, and a thumb throttle.
This bike now makes light work of hills and still retain it's great downhill character.
