The new 5010 becomes a little more proper trail and a little less play in its latest iteration. As it picks up mixed wheels plus a few of the latest updates from Santa Cruz, the bike becomes a little more versatile and utilitarian, while still keeping with its “fun” tradition. More below…
- 140mm front travel / 130mm rear travel
- MX Wheel size
- C&CC carbon frames available
- Glovebox downtube storage
- XS-XXL sizing
- Lifetime warranty
- Threaded bottom bracket
- Santa Cruz UDH
- Flip chip adjustable geometry
The 5010 retains Santa Cruz’s latest version of VPP.
One of the more meaningful updates to the 5010 is that it picks up Glovebox – SCB’s internal downtube storage compartment.
The bike also sees fully sleeved cable/hose routings.
And like the Hightower, it also picks up a sag window to make setting sag a bit easier.
Lastly, the bike clears and is specc’d with piggy back rear shocks.
