While Santa Cruz has several potential quiver-killers, few truly fill the bracket as well as the Santa Cruz 5010 trail bike. Well-priced, with excellent spec and thoughtful design, the 2019 Santa Cruz 5010 C might be as close to a quiver killer as the storied companies has. While it might have a longer top tube, slacker front end, and longer wheelbase than before, it isn’t designed to float over techy terrain. Instead, the 5010 is meant to play and within that terrain. It is quick and nimble, and well-prepared for the kinds of trail riding found in Northern Utah, while never being overmatched in the big features of Southern Utah. 27.5” wheels make the bike nimble through rocky trails, but definitely don’t offer the roll over capability of a larger 29er wheel size. It features an extremely low standover clearance through the whole range of bikes, providing ample clearance clearance for nearly whatever dropper seatpost you’d like. The new 5010 is all about balance and poise, and the whole package has it in spades.
Size large fits riders 5’9″ – 6’1″.
Please note color and componentry on all demo bikes may vary. However componentry will be comparable to the manufacturer’s stock build.
Up to $500 in demo fees can be applied to the purchase of a new bike of similar value within 30 days of demo.
