Why We Like The Santa Cruz 5010 C S Mountain Bike

From jump lines to techy singletrack, the Santa Cruz 5010 is our bike of choice when we need a nimble and aggressive trail bike. With a lightweight frame, mixed-wheel setup, 130mm of VPP suspension, and aggressive geometry, the 5010 was made for riding fast, jumping high, and finessing its way through technical trails. With a 65.2-degree head tube angle in the high setting, the 5010 is not only a blast to ride but also more capable than its short-travel numbers suggest. With short size-specific chainstays to ensure a poppy and playful rear end for every frame size and a steep 77-degree seat tube angle to put us in a perfect climbing position when it's time for another lap, the 5010 is a balanced trail bike that does everything right. The 5010's suspension kinematics also got an update, featuring a more supportive mid-stroke to aid bottom-out resistance and a lower anti-squat value to reduce pedal kickback. Additional features on the 5010 include chainstay and downtube protectors to protect our frame from chain slap and rock strikes, and a shuttle guard allows us to drive to the trailhead with our bike in the back of our truck bed. Finally, when we have a big day planned at the bike park or want to make our ride a bit more capable, we use the Flip Chip in the rear shock link to make our head tube angle slacker and our bottom bracket height lower so we have a better center of gravity and more confidence in steeper terrain.

The S build of the Santa Cruz 5010 features quality components at a more budget-friendly price point. First, Santa Cruz's Carbon C frame is stiff and lightweight and is made to the same standards as Santa Cruz's Carbon CC frame but at a slight weight penalty. RockShox's Select+ series gives us quality suspension performance, fitting us with the Pike Select+ up front with 140mm of travel to soak up the big hits and a Super Deluxe Select+ in the rear to give us confidence and traction off every drop and around every switchback. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain is one of the most trusted drivetrains in the MTB world and allows us to conquer any technical climb with a huge 10-52 tooth gear range. SRAM G2 R brakes give us 4-pistons of power in a lightweight package and are paired with Centerline rotors for maximum stopping power.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
