The Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon is built to serve the most technical backcountry rides, a bike that can handle all riding conditions, and then some, offering plush New Generation VPP suspension in a 27.5"/650b platform. The low bottom bracket height, short chainstays and 130mm of progressive VPP suspension produce a snappy, nimble ride, while the 67 degree head angle and the longer top tube welcomes the use of shorter stems for more precise handling and greater confidence on rapid descents. The new VPP suspension design features a top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link for durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes. Santa Cruz Bicycles put a lot of emphasis on the performance and ride characteristics of their VPP suspension design, with adjustability of shock rates for individual designs, superb pedaling and bump smoothing characteristics. The new frame has all the trimmings demanded today: new Boost 148x12mm rear thru-axle, molded chainstay protector, dropper seatpost internal cable routing, 1 water bottle cage mount and a 73mm threaded BB for creak-free riding. Ride a 5010 and go where no bike has gone before. Lifetime Frame Warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
