Featuring all new paintjobs & an updated selection of build kits for 2018, the 5010 is more ready than ever to flow through any trail. Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know. With a more aggressive geometry than its predecessor, the Santa Cruz 5010 builds confidence through rapid descents thanks to its brilliant handling. Features the latest VPP hardware, drastically improving durability and stiffness with a unique linkage design. Santa Cruz 5010 2018 Features 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 And 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; 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 Santa Cruz 5010 CC XX1 2018 Build Highlights Fox 34 Float Factory 130 fork SRAM XX1 Eagle groupset SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes WTB Frequency Team TCS i25 wheels with Hope Pro 4 Santa Cruz 5010 2.0 Frame Features 130mm VPP™ suspension 148mm Rear Axle Spacing 27.5 wheels Bottle cage mount within front triangle fits piggyback shocks Collet axle pivots lock in place without pinch bolts Double sealed pivots for long bearing life Dual grease ports on lower link for easy maintenance Forged upper and lower links Full carbon dropouts and disk mounts Full carbon frame and swingarm ISCG05 tabs Molded rubber swingarm and downtube protection Sizes: S, M, L, XL Stealth and external seatpost cable routing Threaded Bottom Bracket Santa Cruz 5010 CC Frame The CC-level carbon frame found on the Santa Cruz 5010 CC is every bit as stiff and strong as the C-level frame, but it is lighter (about 280grams lighter) and stronger thanks to the higher tech carbon fibre layup process. This material allows for higher stress points of the frame to be built without additional reinforcement, shaving off more than half a pound from the frame in the process.
