The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. 27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight savings, making them the most fleet-footed (or quick-fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails. It’s a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-link VPP configuration of which leaves you feeling there’s a lot more travel at hand. And, you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks. It’s no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks, and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick up and throw around. No matter how much of a big kid you are, the bike grows with you. We’ve tailored the geometry so frame size is matched to size-specific chainstay lengths, and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit nostalgic, but the 5010’s certainly a perfect gateway to the highs only proper mountain biking can offer. The 5010’s balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully-fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish, and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages, and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty. So don’t be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative. - Carbon C 27.5" 130mm Travel VPP frame - RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock - FOX 34 Float Performance, 140mm fork - SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post
Riding Santa Cruz's 5010 is like having a Swiss Army knife for the trails: it's got everything you need and nothing you don't. It runs 27.5-inch wheels and a 125mm VPP rear suspension to tackle the steeps, the drops, the bumps, and the curves. A low bottom bracket and short chainstays translate into a snappy ride, while the lightweight, strong aluminum construction makes the 5010 more than just a bike: it's a well-crafted tool. Throw in a 142mm rear axle and angular contact bearings for lateral stiffness that will have you howling through the corners. It's topped off with ISCG05 tabs and internal cable routing for a dropper post.

Santa Cruz's Bronson is the reference for all-mountain riding and racing. This aluminum trail rig solves the gnarliest singletrack thanks to VPP suspension with 150mm of action. With balanced frame geometry, you'll make XC riders nervous on the climbs, and once gravity lends a hand, watch out! The Bronson features a 67-degree head angle and matches up nicely to a 150mm fork. And, it's rocking ISCG tabs, internal and external dropper post routing, and a plenty of enduro-ready style to make this bike a top choice out of any lineup. Case closed.
