Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminum 27.5 – R-AM, Fox 32/130 fork, Float CTD rear shock – $3899.99

5010 Aluminum

Developed using what we learned from Bronson, the comparatively lower bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of VPP travel give 5010 its snappy, nimble, ride. Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, a 68° head angle and 6lb frame weight adds climbing agility into the equation, defining 5010 as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.
