Santa Cruz offers limited-edition replica of Minnaar’s World Champion V10


On September 1, 2013, Greg Minnaar won his 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, Santa Cruz has created a limited edition Minnaar V10 replica of which only 25 will be made, with two having already been sold!

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, the replica will be available in four sizes, from small to XL.
