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 D is a great entry-level package that puts the world at your fingertips.
A 12-speed SRAM drivetrain makes finding the right gear easy. Air suspension in the front and rear allow for a wide range of tuning options for riders of all shapes and sizes. The build kit is smart and simple. It can be upgraded over time or just ridden the way it is.
