5010

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.

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. 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.

The alloy version of the 5010 differs just slightly from its carbon brethren: Santa Cruz opted against including ISCG tabs, as one-by drivetrains have rendered them mostly unnecessary, and they’ve made the switch to an integrated headset like you’ll find on the Hightower and Tallboy. These decisions shaved a bit of weight from the frame, which otherwise includes all the features you’ll find on the C and CC-level carbon frames, but in an attractive, strong, aluminum package.

By using a slightly-less-expensive carbon fiber, Santa Cruz were 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.

The CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as the C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed the 5010 to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.
