We Like The Santa Cruz 5010 C GX Eagle Transmission Mountain Bike

From smashing jump lines to dissecting the flowy singletrack, the Santa Cruz 5010 is our weapon of choice when we need a bike that rips. With a lightweight frame, mixed-wheel setup, 130mm of VPP suspension, and aggressive geometry, the 5010 has all the ingredients to make a bike that is downright fun. With a 65.2-degree head tube angle in the high setting, the 5010 is not only a blast to ride but also extremely capable. Short size-specific chainstays ensure a poppy and playful rear end for every size frame, and a steep 77-degree seat tube angle allows us to be in a perfect climbing position when it's time for another lap. This revised version of the 5010 has less anti-squat than the previous version to reduce pedal kickback and provide better traction, and more linear leverage with a sharp increase in progressiveness allows for a more supportive mid-stroke and aids in bottom out resistance and soaking up big hits in the last bit of travel. The 5010 features a chainstay and downtube protector to protect from chain slap and rock strikes, and a shuttle guard allows us to drive to the trailhead with our bike in the back of our truck bed. When we are planning on hitting some more technical and steep trails for the day, the flip chip in the rear shock link allows us to make the 5010 lower, longer, and slacker for more confidence when things get rowdy.

The GX Eagle Transmission AXS build of the Santa Cruz 5010 gives us quality components and the latest technology in electronic drivetrains at a more budget-friendly price point. First, Santa Cruz's Carbon C frame gives us a stiff and lightweight frame and is made to the same standards as Santa Cruz's Carbon CC frame but at a slight weight penalty. RockShox's Select+ series gives us quality suspension performance, fitting us with the Pike Select+ up front with 140mm of travel to soak up the big hits and a Super Deluxe Select+ in the rear to provide ground-gripping traction around every berm. SRAM's GX Eagle Transmission AXS drivetrain gives us the latest tech in the electronic drivetrain world, providing us with a near-bombproof design, flawless shifting, and the same huge gear range. SRAM Code Bronze Stealth 4-piston brakes ensure great modulation and, combined with SRAM premium HS2 rotors, provide loads of stopping power.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
