What is a quiver killer mountain bike? It is a single mountain bike that can handle all of the riding one wants to do, from all-day backcountry rides to quick lunchtime laps, and do it all well. There are many bikes that claim to do just that, but few if any bikes really succeed in doing just so. The 2021 Santa Cruz 5010 CC trail bike does just that with 140 mm front / 130 rear travel and 27.5” wheels. Its the fun, capable, and versatile mountain bike for anyone looking for one bike to do it all.
The Santa Cruz 5010 CC 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. It might not soak up as much as a DH bike, but 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 size will ensure every rider has the same great maneuverable bike handling. 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 CC uses their CC grade carbon fiber. This carbon manages to be ultra-strong and lightweight, cutting 250 grams (about half a pound) from the C-grade carbon frame. Low standover and a remarkable five sizes make the 5010 a bike that everyone can ride and enjoy.
The 2021 Santa Cruz 5010 CC – X01 is available in five sizes (XS-XL), two color ways, with or without Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Wheels.
