Product Info

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.

Product Details


Carbon C FrameA 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® SuspensionVirtual 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 PerformanceThe 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.

SRAM GX ShiftersGet sharp, dependable shifting with the SRAM GX X-ACTUATION™ trigger shifter. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the GX trigger shifter brings championship technology to everyone.

SRAM GX 11-Speed Rear DerailleurLeveraging the legendary history of SRAM shifting, the GX 1x11 rear derailleur provides incredible shifting speed and precision. X-ACTUATION™ technology eliminates slop and shifting variation. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing terrain. And with CAGE LOCK™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.

SRAM XG-1150 CassetteFULL PIN™ technology uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42t gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design similar to the X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Race Face Æffect CranksetThe Æffect crankset is designed to handle aggressive trail riding at a XC crank weight and attractive pricepoint. Featuring the Cinch System with interchangeable spider options and RaceFace's trusted 24mm EXI interface spindle, the Æffect is a rock solid crankset for the modern XC and trail rider.


SRAM Guide R BrakesetWhat’s it going to take to ride that line? It’s steep. It’s rocky. You’ve passed it a hundred times. But not this time. With the all-new SRAM Guide R, you have the power. Proven 4-piston calipers give you smooth, one-finger control. Features like Reach Adjust let you dial it in just right. And Guide perfectly complements other SRAM components and gives you flawless performance on every ride. Now featuring the World Championship-winning S4 caliper with Bleeding Edge™ and Heat Shield technologies.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis CrossMark II EXO | Rear TireThe CrossMark II improves on the speed of its predecessor while improving grip in intermediate conditions. The legendary center ridge still flies on hardpack, and the updated tread pattern provides better braking and cornering over a wide range of trail conditions. A great choice if you want to go fast everywhere.

Stan's Sealant (Already Tubeless!)Award winning tire sealant from the folks that invented tubeless conversion and redefined puncture protection.
