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 C S+ is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It isn’t the fanciest build in the world. It doesn’t have the most travel. It doesn’t have the biggest wheels. Instead, it utilizes simple, proven components that elevate your riding experience to the next level for a reasonable price.
The S+ build kit takes a carbon frame, FOX suspension, and an SRAM drivetrain, and adds wider tires and rims to crank your confidence up to 11.
