Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 C R Complete Mountain Bike brings fun to the masses. A beefy and light carbon fiber wonderbike that's got next-gen geo and reliable parts?--sign us up! There's not a rider on the planet this bike can't please, with its flickable 27.5" wheels, progressive low'n'long (but not too much of either) geometry, and ripping lineage, this is an aggressive mountain bicycle from the leaders in the game. Its chainstays are proportional to its reach, meaning each size rides like the others: ridiculously fun!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Frame Update 4.0The 4th iteration of the 5010 features variable chainstay lengths for optimal balance across the full size range. It also features a slightly slacker head angle, a slightly higher bottom bracket to account for added travel, a slightly longer reach, and a lower standover height.

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.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

Fox Float DPS Performance Rear ShockPerformance Series FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat.
