Product Info

Santa Cruz bikes are no strangers to World Cup podium and local Strava KOM's, but they're deeply rooted in fun, and the Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 C XT Reserve Complete Mountain Bike is their magnum opus to that pursuit. This bike is quick, to be sure, but it's more about zest than getting to the finish line first. With 27.5" Reserve carbon wheels that are guaranteed for life, an updated lower-link VPP® shock position, and Shimano's new XT components, this is a 130mm trail bike that's pure mustard. Spicy mustard. Spicy carbon mustard? Whatever: it rips!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Frame Update 4.0The 4th iteration of the 5010 features variable chainstay lengths for optimal balance across the full size range. It also features a slightly slacker head angle, a slightly higher bottom bracket to account for added travel, a slightly longer reach, and a lower standover height.

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ Rear ShockSuper Deluxe Select+ is built for the latest breed of hard hitting enduro and trail bikes. Offering the ride control you need paired with a user-friendly threshold adjustment all rolled into a great high performance-to-value package. They even threw in Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction and silence noise.

Wheelset

Santa Cruz Reserve 30 27.5" Carbon Rims Laced to DT Swiss 350 HubsWhether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. SC set strength and impact resistance as their highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. Their wheels are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name offroad. Santa Cruz only makes offroad bikes, so they have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from their experience of knowing what riders need at every level—from international racing to your local trails.

Maxxis Minion DHR II TiresA real rider's tire choice, these Minions bring a mix of rolling resistance, wear, and performance that can't be beat. With MaxxGrip up front and MaxxTerra compound on the rear, this is a no-compromise rubber setup.

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.

Santa Cruz Carbon HandlebarDesigned and made exclusively by Santa Cruz, using everything they've learned from creating World Championship winning carbon bicycles. Each bar has a dialed amount of stiffness, keeping vibration in check and minimizing arm fatigue. Discrete markers take the pain out of set-up alignments and stealth branding keeps things class.
