Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon C S from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The S build includes SRAM Guide R brakes and SRAM GX 1x drivetrain for taming uphill battles, and the Fox Float Performance shock and Fox 34 Float Performance fork enable confidence at speed. For the 5010 C, Santa Cruz used a slightly less expensive carbon fiber, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the Carbon CC, with a slight 280-gram weight increase.

Kevin has a wide demo selection and gives you a week to ride. Looking for a trail bike and demoed a tallboy. Great bike but was looking a little more capability at both ends. The 5010 fits the billl enjoying every ride since picking it up in October.
