The 2021 Santa Cruz 5010 C R Kit is lightweight, super durable and more than capable of getting you through techy trails while climbing with authority.
A Fox Rhythm 34 fork with 140mm travel helps tame bigger bumps on the trail while the 130mm Fox Float Performance DPS shock in the back provides just enough suspension to make rough rides more comfortable while also assuring you retain optimal control of the SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain.
Built with a set of WTB ST i30 TCS rims and Maxxis Minion tires you’ll enjoy the smooth, reliable ride and take comfort in knowing the SDG Tellis dropper post makes switching up your position a breeze whether you’re climbing, descending or sprinting to the finish of the weekend throwdown.
The Santa Cruz 5010 C R Kit turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand.
27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed (or quick fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails.
It’s a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-link VPP™ configuration of which leaves you feeling there’s a lot more travel at hand. And you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.
It’s no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick up and throw around.
No matter how much of a big kid you are the bike grows with you. We’ve tailored the geometry so frame size is matched to size specific chainstay lengths and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit nostalgic, but the 5010’s certainly a perfect gateway to the highs only proper mountain biking can offer.
The 5010’s balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty.
So don’t be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative.
