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.
