Get rowdy with the The Santa Cruz 5010 trail bike. With 140 mm suspension front and 130mm rear, 27.5” wheels, the new geometry for 2021 makes this bike pop from corner to corner. Few bikes have more fun, and as proven under the usage of cyclists like Danny Macaskill, the Santa Cruz 5010 C trail bike is a durable, extremely fun bike that is ready for whatever you throw at it.
The Santa Cruz 5010 C – XT Kit is built for aggressive trail riding. The latest in VPP suspension is designed for a more-supportive midstroke without getting rid of the poppy, fun nature of the 5010. With 140 mm of front suspension, it won’t soak up every little bit of the trail on a climb (or a descent even) but it ensures the bike is comfortable spinning up to your next descent. Where this bike shines is the descents. 27.5” wheels have the advantage of having tight chainstays, and the variable chainstay length based on bike size ensure you get the right bike handling no matter what size is right for you. Just right angles and reach measurements make this bike feel responsive and confidence-inspiring, whether it is ridden by a new mountain bike rider or an experienced pro alike.
The 5010 C uses their C grade carbon fiber. While much cheaper to produce than the high-end CC carbon, it offers the same level of stiffness and durability with only a 250-280g increase in weight. Low standover and a remarkable five sizes make the 5010 a bike that everyone can ride and enjoy.
What? A Shimano XT Juliana Build? Thats right, new for 2021, Santa Cruz is now offering an XT build kit for those Shimano lovers out there.
The 2021 Santa Cruz 5010 C – XT Kit is available in five sizes (XS-XL), two coloways and the choice to upgrade to the Santa Cruz Carbon Reserve Wheels.
