2021 Santa Cruz 5010 Bikes


For 2021, Santa Cruz brings us the new Mk4 version of the 5010.


It may be short travel, but it’s super capable, poppy and fun!  THE bike for playing around, mucking about in the woods, jumps and playing or weaving singletrack.


This latest version has the new lower link activated shock design of the rest of the Santa Cruz range, a touch more front travel than before and a few new neat details.
