27.5-inch wheels were developed to be nimble and fast, so it's no surprise that Santa Cruz's 5010 nails that criteria in grand fashion. The aluminum frame is the heart and features VPP suspension with a Fox Float CTD providing 125mm of cush to tackle the steeps, the drops, the bumps, and the curves. A low bottom bracket, short chainstays, 142mm rear axle, and angular contact bearings for lateral stiffness translate into a snappy, corner slashing ride. Speaking of the ride, a Shimano XT drivetrain gives you legendary shifting, while XT brakes are the industry standard in stopping. It all rolls smoothly on WTB Frequency Team rims laced to DT 350 hubs and includes an Easton bar and a Reverb Stealth dropper post for all the speed you can handle and then some.
