From top to tail the Santa Cruz 5010 has been honed, refined and revolutionised into this new beast, the 5010 4.0. The design intent of this bike is clear to see, a 27.5" bike that will hop, jump, turn, and play with ease all over the Brisbane and South East QLD mountain bike trails. A playful yet confident 65.7 degree head angle and 338mm BB height keeps the bikes handling responsive and snappy with comfortable reach numbers for each size. An impressive new change to Santa Cruz is the fact they're now scaling chain stays and seat tube angles to frame sizes, this makes for a more balanced and refined ride.
As fun as thrashing those corners and flowing the jumps is what happens when things get a little rough and ugly? The updated lower link driven VPP suspension design gives the 130mm rear travel a very composed feeling that tracks the ground remarkably well when it needs to. The 140mm fork allows riders to bite off that little bit more than others, push that little bit harder and ultimately go that little bit faster.
If you thrive off the thrill of slashing a turn, popping a jump while still moving at a damn good pace down your local trail the Santa Cruz 5010 4.0 is ticking all the right boxes for you. We've got a range of 'house build' options available as well the full custom experience, check out these below and let the For The Riders team turn your dream into a reality.
