Santa Cruz 5010 C S Mountain Bike '17
The Santa Cruz 5010 C S Mountain Bike is built to serve the most technical backcountry missions. 130mm of VPP™ (Virtual Pivot Point) travel produces a shorter chainstay length and lower BB height compared to the 5010's bigger-travel brethren. This creates a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, rocky climbs. When it's time to head home, playtime becomes a riot. The new 5010 has a 67-degree head tube angle, more aggressive than before, and the longer top tube welcomes the use of shorter stems for more precise handling and greater confidence on rapid descents. The 5010 also shares all the latest VPP® hardware with the new Bronson. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes. Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know.
By using a slightly-less-expensive carbon fiber, Santa Cruz was able to put performance within reach of more riders than ever before, lifting the race pace of World Cup athletes and privateers alike. The stiffness, durability, and strength are identical between the two materials, but the C-level carbon weighs in at about 280 grams more than the top-end, CC carbon.
