Steve Peat takes his new Santa Cruz 5010 into the wilds of Scotland.
5010 pushes further into the realms of 27.5" wheel size possibilities. Developed using what we learned from Bronson, it takes the design platform in a different direction.
The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give 5010 its snappy, nimble, ride.
A 68 degree head angle adds climbing agility into the equation, whilst a 5lb carbon frame weight define 5010 as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.
Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, 5010 goes where no bike has gone before.
This film was a collaborative project between Santa Cruz, The Baller Consultancy, CutMedia and Visit Scotland.
Sharing the same mega-agile geometry as the Solo, the all new Bantam punches way above its weight for a trail bike in this category.
With 125mm of single-pivot travel and 27.5" wheels, it's a refreshingly simple machine.
The kind of machine that inspires people like Henry O'Donnell to build rad trails for all of us... way way out in the Lakes Basin area of California.
