The Santa Cruz 5010 C S 27.5 Mountain Bike '22 turns obstacles into features. A nimble, poppy feel makes the most humdrum rides feel loaded with features to hop, skip, and jump over yet makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. It's fun-sized 27.5" wheels provide the ideal balance of toughness and weight reduction for sprightly launching logs or weaving through legions of stumps. A 140 mm front fork travel paired with 130 mm in the rear combined with a lower-link VPP® configuration leaves you feeling there's way more travel at your disposal. You can choose how wild you want to get since it fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.
The 5010 is certainly no handful. Its relatively slack head angle keeps it predictable and its relatively low BB height makes it turn like it's on tracks, while the short chainstays make it easy to pick up and toss around. The geometry has been frame size-matched to size-specific chainstay lengths and wicked low standover heights to make it feel (almost) like the BMX bike you had as a kid. The balance and elegance this bike has will turn any rider from a cautious freshman into an unshakeable pilot during an intense air battle. The Santa Cruz 5010 C S 27.5 Mountain Bike '22 has a harefooted and athletic disposition makes it a go-to tool for progressive riders all over the world and the only contender on backyard trails.
