One of Santa Cruz’s Best Mountain Bikes Just Got a Major Upgrade
Santa Cruz

We've been fans of the Santa Cruz 5010 since long before that was its name, and the 2021 version just got an all-new upgrade. The new 5010 now features Santa Cruz's lower-link VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) suspension that you may recognize from burlier models like the Nomad and the Bronson. And following the trend of modern bikes, the 5010 gets a slightly slacker head tube angle and a longer reach. It's is an efficient peddler, but is fully capable of getting rowdy when the conditions call for it. Plus, as per usual, the colorways across the entire 2021 Santa Cruz line do not disappoint. If you're in the market for a new trail bike, Backcountry has a full stock of different builds and sizes in the new 5010, as well as the rest of Santa Cruz's 2021 lineup.
