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 CC XX1+ AXS Reserve adds plus tires to Santa Cruz’s dreamy XX1 AXS Reserve build kit. If you are looking for the world’s most capable trail scalpel, a bike that goes exactly where you want it to while popping off of everything in sight, the XX1 AXS Reserve is the bike for you.
If you want the crisp performance of carbon everything combined with mind-blowing traction and the ability to ignore the “mainline” and just go for it, the XX1+ AXS Reserve is just the bike for you.
