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 X01 takes everything to the next level. The CC carbon frame offers a stiffer carbon layup that uses less carbon fiber, providing an unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio. You also get a carbon handlebar and crankset, stepping up the game even more.
The SRAM X01 12-speed drivetrain provides crisp shifting at a lower weight, and RockShox Pike Select+ fork and FOX DPX2 Performance Elite rear shock smooth out the trail for you.
