The 5010 (Fifty-Ten) is arguably the most fun bike Santa Cruz has ever made. The engineers at Santa Cruz figured out a magic-geometry formula that riders have been enamored with ever since.
120mm of VPP travel isn’t much to work with, but it’s all you need. The suspension is supple initially and progressive at the end. Add 27.5-inch wheels, and this makes for an endlessly playful ride that can still take a hit.
The 5010 AL S+ brings Maxxis plus tires and 35mm wide Race Face wheels to the bombproof S package. This setup is ideal for anyone who wants to get the most performance and reliability without breaking the bank.
The S build kit offers a great SRAM drivetrain and FOX suspension package. Adding plus tires takes the edge off of the trail and gives you the edge you need to clean more climbs and enjoy the roughest terrain.
