Santa Cruz 5010 Alloy


The Santa Cruz 5010 flies under the radar as one of the most fun and capable bikes in the Santa Cruz line. With 130mm front and rear travel, 27.5” wheels, and the most dialed trail geometry, this bike is an absolute riot.

Rider Feedback

“I’ve always been attracted to the longer travel bikes, mainly because they do a good job of compensating for my mistakes.. (laughs) After riding the 5010, I realized that I didn’t have to sacrifice all of the quick handling and playfulness I wanted to get a bike capable enough for the front range. This thing is nimble, fast, and holds its own in the rough stuff.”
