Limited Edition Minnaar V10 Worlds Replica

LAUNCH: Special run of 25 to celebrate 2013 World Champs win!

On September 1st 2013, Greg Minnaar won a third World Championship title, on a stock Santa Cruz V10 downhill frame in front of his home crowd in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

To celebrate his back-to-back gold medals, we’ve created a limited edition Minnaar V10 replica of which only 25 will be made, 23 of which will be planted at select locations around the World. 

The bikes have a totally unique build, born from Greg’s collaboration with Syndicate race mechanics and team partners.  From the aesthetics, such as one-off frame, wheel, fork, and saddle graphics, down to the specifics such as the 808mm wide Special Edition ENVE Minnaarbar and cut down Shimano 7-speed 11-19 cassette.

Equipped with stock Fox suspension and Shimano Saint groupset, the Minnaar V10 Replica is perfected with Chris King components, Burgtec stem, Gamut chain device and Maxxis Minion DHR II tires.

Although Greg actually rides an XL, we’re offering the replica in four sizes, from small to extra large.  What’s more, each bike is accompanied by an exclusive O’Neal Rainbow Stripes Minnaar replica jersey.

If you want to secure a piece of Santa Cruz DH history, you’ll have to be swift.  A full list of distributors/dealers holding the bikes can be found below.
