The Santa Cruz 5010 C S

Mixed Wheels
The mixed wheel configuration of a 29-inch wheel up front provides traction and stability, while the 27.5″ rear wheel allows for quick back wheel steering and lifting.

Place your ride essentials securely beneath a new high-quality latch and panel in the 5010’s downtube. The Glovebox comes with a fitted Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, tailored for the frame to keep your tools close to hand.

C Carbon
C Carbon frames use the very best materials and production processes available. Santa Cruz tailor stiffness for every size to make sure everyone gets the same ride quality. Bigger riders means greater stresses on larger frames, but that’s remedied with the size-specific frame stiffness tunes.

Sag window
A window allows easier suspension sag and setup. The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.

Made to last many lifetimes
The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction put this into a league of its own. The frame, bearings and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty and any service is easy to do with our Rider Support pledge.

Support and playfulness
Santa Cruz gave the 5010 a very straight, highly progressive leverage curve to give the rider plenty of predictable support, bottom-out resistance, and playful response. This means the travel is accessible and higher impacts aren’t as jarring as you’d expect from a short-travel bike.

Traction and big hits
For 5010, Santa Cruz wanted to find the balance of support and grip to maximize the bike’s descending and big-hitting capability. They started with a significantly less anti-squat (than previous generation 5010) to provide sensitive, ground-tracking qualities and reduced pedal kick.

130mm VPP™ Federweg
Some call it short travel, others call it all the travel you’ll need. This much travel isn’t going to help shrug off the biggest, fastest rock gardens like a V10 downhill race bike, but it’s going to feel like you’ve got a V10 under the hood of your motor when it comes to freeway freestyling miles.

VPP™ suspension can be optimized to strike the right balance between pedaling efficiency and all-out bump chomping prowess. That means wherever you see “VPP™” you know it’s tuned to perform exactly how it should for the purpose it’s designed for.


Proportional Chainstay Lengths
The 5010’s chainstay length is matched to the frame size so every rider, no matter their height, gets the same balanced geometry.

27.5 Wheels
27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. This wheel size makes a bike feel fleet-footed (or quick fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps.

The Right Fit
Five sizes, low standover, slack head angle, low BB, and 140/130mm travel. It’s the kind of bike that allows you to get creative with your surroundings.

Santa Cruz carbon frame
We don’t just use carbon to build bikes because it looks cool and everyone is doing it. We pioneer advanced materials and production methods to build the most durable and high-performance bicycles because it’s the way to ensure that riders can just enjoy riding their bike. Our experience with carbon production allows us to build bikes that are extremely reliable.

We design, test and prototype our carbon technology in Santa Cruz, CA. Our carbon lab gives us the capacity to research carbon layup optimization that we can apply to our production frames, and research and test new manufacturing processes and techniques. Our production bikes are strong as hell, and we feel we have a good handle on our toolbox of materials, but having the carbon facility in the same building as the engineers allows us to push our understanding forward, and take advantage of emerging materials technology.

Our frames are manufactured in our exclusive factory (Skybox). We founded this manufacturing facility ourselves because we wanted to be able to control how our designs were produced, to ensure quality control, and to make sure the advancements we design remain proprietary to us (we’re not being selfish, it just sucks when someone peers over your shoulder to get the answer you’ve worked hard to figure out). What’s more, if something needs improving, we have the capacity and capability to change it, before it gets into your hands.
