Geometry Table

High Setting

The V10 has two geometry settings, which are easily adjustable with a 6mm hex wrench. The 'high' setting results in a 64-degree head tube angle, and the 'low' setting slackens it by a half-degree and drops the bottom bracket by a quarter-inch for even more stability at higher speeds.

All measurements reflect installation of a fork with a 586.1mm axle-to-crown height.
