Description

5010 be nimble, 5010 be quick.

Santa Cruz hasn't forgotten what made the original 5010 a smashing success with a large contingent of trail riders, building on its strengths and updating some things to make this third generation the best 5010 yet. For the 2019 model year, Santa Cruz pushes the 5010 Carbon CC 27.5 XO1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike into slacker and longer realms for increased competency at higher speeds demanded by modern trail bikes, yet it retains the original bike's razor-sharp handling and pedaling efficiency that cemented it as a versatile rig for everything from all-day epics in the mountains to spirited trail rides winding across the local forest network.

The third generation 5010 is slacker than ever, dropping to a 66.5-degree head tube angle in its high setting and a more gravity-friendly 66.1-degree head tube angle in the lowest setting. The addition of a flip-chip makes this all possible, meaning you'll have the ability to adapt the bike's geometry for different terrain and riding styles, whether you're seeking a bit more balanced feel with greater efficiency and climbing competency or you'd like it to flat out rip those steep descents with imposing rocks and roots threatening to derail your balance.

Not only does the flip-chip allow you to ride in a more slacked-out position if you so choose, but it also gives you ample clearance to run wider tires up to 2.8 inches in width if you're seeking the massive traction and smoother ride quality of plus-sized rubber. If you'd like to run a higher volume tire than what's spec'd on this particular build, we'd recommend going with tires in the range of 2.5 to 2.6 inches. We feel these newly sized tires provide all the benefits of plus-size tires—namely monstrous traction and plow-anything confidence over loose rocks and rubble—all without the significantly heavier feel and tendency to squirm under hard cornering you'd experience with a larger 2.8-inch tire.

Another major update to the design of the third generation 5010 lies in a slightly longer reach that's grown by 15 millimeters for a bit roomier feel in the cockpit, as well as increased composure at those higher speeds you'll be pushing this bike to. The seat tube is a full degree steeper to keep you in an optimal pedaling position when you're climbing for thousands of vertical feet or simply muscling up a short, punchy climbs with rocks and roots standing in your way.

As you'd expect with the 5010, it retains the high degree of pedaling efficiency and bottom-out resistance of the previous version. This VPP configuration neatly tucks the lower link above the bottom bracket to prevent rock strikes and damage from flinging trail debris. The upper portion remains attached to the top tube with a stiffer box-section upper link. While others in the Santa Cruz line have moved to a lower-link mounted shock, the 5010 retains its upper link-mounted shock, seeing it's not as gravity-oriented as say the Bronson or Nomad. However, it's spec'd with a FOX DPX2 Float Performance Elite shock for a more supple feel with heightened traction while pedaling over bumpy trail sections, as well as greater resistance to heating up excessively on those long descents.

One thing that luckily hasn't changed is Santa Cruz's carbon lay-up. This particular frame enjoys the top-tier Carbon CC layup, which saves a good deal of weight while retaining all the stiffness and strength you've come to expect from a Santa Cruz carbon frame. While we don't have any particular figures on hand, the Carbon CC layup usually saves anywhere from 250 to 280 grams from its cheaper Carbon C brethren, making it a great choice for the more discerning rider looking for the lightest possible build. It's even backed by an outstanding lifetime warranty, so you'll have extra peace of mind while tackling long stretches of trail and putting this bike to the test across technical terrain.

  • Santa Cruz's agile trail bike is more versatile than ever
  • Slacker, longer geometry for increased composure at speed
  • Flip-chip switches between 66.5° and 66.1° head tube angles
  • Accepts wider tires up to 2.8 inches for plow-anything prowess
  • Retains low bottom bracket, short chainstays for quick cornering
  • VPP suspension balances efficiency with bottom-out resistance
  • Carbon CC frame saves weight without compromising stiffness
  • XO1 Eagle drivetrain for crisp shifts across a wide range

Swiss army knife of bikes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Due of Switzerland's long history of neutrality, the Swiss Armed Forces do not take part in conflicts in other countries. All things considered though, the Swiss Armed Forces have become synonymous with producing a tool which can be made useful in all situations. Hence, if the Santa Cruz 5010 were to be a tool, it would be a Swiss Army Knife, complete with scissors, pliers, hoof cleaner, and cork-screw.

All comparisons to multi-tools aside, this bike really feels at home on all variety of trails. The updated VPP provides for a stable, mountain-goat-like uphill performance. The 32-tooth chainring combined with 10-50t Eagle cassette makes this machine fly up hills without having to even break a sweat.
Spec'd with SRAM X01, the shifting is a dream. Carbon X1 cranks are easy to spin up while also being sturdy enough that I don't need to think twice about them coming through a rock garden. The adjustability of the X01 shifter meant I could get the position exactly where I wanted it. Combined with the clean, but easily customizable cockpit afforded by SRAM, the Guide RSC brakes gave me plenty of confidence on the descents.

On the descents, the newly-updated long, slack chassis makes this bike feel much bigger than it actually is! I found it incredibly easy to forget that I was on a 130mm travel bike, instead I found myself charging through rock-gardens, over roots, and sending drops with ease. Even more so, this bike is incredibly playful. A day at the bike-park found me spending more time giggling in the air than anything.

Spec'd with SRAM X01, the shifting is a dream. Carbon X1 cranks are easy to spin up while also being sturdy enough that I don't need to think twice about them coming through a rock garden.

What really makes this build stand apart is the Carbon Reserve wheels. with a whopping 37mm internal width and arguably the best carbon hoops on the market, laced to bullet-proof DT Swiss hubs, these bad war-pigs are truly confidence inspiring. Schralping into corners was almost too easy with how stiff these are. Plus (no pun intended) the volume afforded with their wide width in combination with a 2.6 wide tire meant this has monster truck capabilities.

A near perfect bike except...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this bike. So much fun to ride in my local trails that range from very tight singletrack to more open freeride stuff. But man the Rockshox Reverb dropper brings it down at least one star if not more. It simply doesn't work as it should. And for a bike that approaches 7 large everything should work almost perfectly. I tried getting it replaced from CC but that didn't work which is strange because they replaced the one on my Bronson. Aside from that, it's a great "poppy playful" bike that holds its own on the climbs.
