Description

The 5010 is the most fun you can have on two off-road wheels, and Danny MacAskill’s wee bike of choice. Turning trails into pump tracks and logs into launches, this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. It's a laser-sharp, agile trail whip that turns on a dime and loves to pop and play. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. A firm beginning stroke makes for responsive, snappy pedaling and provides support for small bump, bump-jump playfulness, while the progressive curve offers the bottom-out resistance to make it feel like there’s a lot more travel than there actually is. There’s also more than enough tire clearance to run just about any size tire, with room to run 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing.

The 5010 Aluminum S is Santa Cruz's top-of-the-line model in the aluminum-frame lineup and features more performance-oriented components to match your aggressive riding style. SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes and a GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain provide pinpoint speed control, while the 27.5-inch tubeless-ready Race Face rim and Maxxis Minion tire combo is light and responsive for efficient, stable handling.

It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool.
