What is the Santa Cruz 5010?

The 5010 is one of Santa Cruz’s liveliest rides. It’s a diabolically fun mid-travel 27.5” trail bike that loves to tear through turns and get airborne at every opportunity. It’s snappy and quick, and punches well above its weight class when ridden on big terrain.

The 5010 is designed to give riders the capability and confidence to create new lines and nail them with ease. This bike wants to weave through trees, slash berms, pop off rocks and much much more. It’s probably the most fun you’ll ever have on a mountain bike, and believe it or not, Santa Cruz has made the 2021 lineup even more epic.
What’s new for the 5010?

Lower-link VPP Suspension

One of the most important changes to the 5010 design is also the easiest to spot. The VPP suspension has been changed from an upper-link to a lower-link system, which offers lots of great benefits and makes the 2021 model something to seriously drool over.

Just like Santa Cruz’s long-travel bikes, the lower-link VPP suspension helps the 5010 feel way more capable on big terrain than the specs would suggest. The leverage curve is straighter and more progressive than the previous generation and makes shock setup and tuning a whole lot easier.

It also allows riders to run any, and we mean any, rear shock size and type. You heard that right, the new 5010 lets you run any model of coil or air shock from any brand. Rowdy riders rejoice.

The upgrades to the new 5010 are all about taking the fun up a notch.

For the 2021 model year, Santa Cruz has increased the front travel from 130mm to 140mm so riders can send it that much harder.

The R and S models receive a FOX 34 shock, and the XT and X01 models get the Rockshox Pike.
