2022 Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C XT 27.5 Inch Mountain Bike in Yellow

Season:2022

Brand:Santa Cruz

Code:58-22228-152-

The Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C XT is a 27.5" wheel Mountain Bike thatturns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand.


27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed (or quick fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails.


Key Features:

  • Carbon C Frameset with Life Warranty and Support
  • RockShox Pike Ultimate 140mm Fork Upgrade
  • RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ Rear Shock
  • Shimano XT M8100 12-Speed Drivetrain
  • Shimano XT M8120Hydraulic Disc Brakes with 180mm Rotors
  • RockShox Reverb Stealth 31.6 Dropper Post
  • Tubeless Wheels & Tyres

It’s a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-link VPPTM configuration of which leaves you feeling there’s a lot more travel at hand. And you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.

It’s no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick up and throw around.

No matter how much of a big kid you are the bike grows with you. We’ve tailored the geometry so frame size is matched to size specific chainstay lengths and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid.

Okay, perhaps that’s a bit nostalgic, but the 5010’s certainly a perfect gateway to the highs only proper mountain biking can offer.

The 5010’s balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty.

So don’t be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative.

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.

VPP(TM)

A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm-travel of lower-link VPP™suspension. Now you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.

Quality, Strength, Reliability

The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty.

If you're on the cusp between the recommended height range of two sizes, the absolute best thing is to try to ride them both. At a minimum, check the stack/reach measurements on your current bike and compare it to the new model you are looking at to get an idea of a fit you are already comfortable with. If riding the bike is not an option, consider the following.

Personal Preference

A larger size frame will be more stable, and will give you more room to move without upsetting the weight-balance of the bike. The larger size will put the front wheel further in front of you, which gives the feeling of security and conversely, it will require more significant body movements when you WANT to shift the weight-bias of the bike. Think hard about your riding style and how active/intuitive you want it to be vs stable and speedy. You'll need to work a bit harder to muscle the larger bike around.

Body Dimension

Not all bodies at a given height are the same. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso than the average person your height, that may push you towards the smaller of the recommended sizes. If you're all torso and arms, most likely you'll want to size up.
