The bikepacking hype is real, but opting to venture deep into the backcountry on that rusty ol' garage sale special is practically wishing to get stuck out there. For longer pedals and rolling singletrack opt for the Santa Cruz 5010 2.0 C S Complete Mountain Bike. Featuring Santa Cruz's famed VPP® suspension and a full carbon frameset, the 5010 2.0 delivers a lightweight, rigid and efficient ride on technical climbs, yet still delivers impressive impact absorption for a 130 mm travel bike when things heat up on the descents. Kitted out with adjustable Fox Float Performance bump-eaters, SRAM components, and a tubeless wheelset, the 5010 2.0 C S Mountain Bike is a high performance pedal pony that was made to playfully devour singletrack.
Carbon C Frame A minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.
130 mm VPP® Suspension Virtual Pivot Point (VPP®) is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. The beauty of VPP® suspension is that the short links allow Santa Cruz to create compact tidy suspension designs. Combine that with large diameter pivot axles running on angular contact bearings and you get the integrity, responsiveness and precision that Santa Cruz frames are famous for.
Fox Float Performance The design of the Fox Float Performance shock offers excellent bump absorption and firm lockout. A Dual Piston System (DPS) damper is equipped with three position settings to match any terrain.
