If you are looking for one of the most fun bikes to ride trail centres like Glentress, this could be the bike you are after. The bike is always going to put a smile on your face no matter what you ride it on.
The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the king of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. So if you are wanting to beat your fastest time down Spooky Wood this could be the Bike to do it on.
27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight saving making them the most fleet-footed whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over.
It's a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-Link VPP configuration of which leaves you feeling there's a lot more travel at hand. And you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as the pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks.
It's no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick and throw around.
No matter how much of a kid you are the bike grows with you. We've tailored the geometry so frame sizes matched to size specific chainstay lengths and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid.
The 5010's balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages come with a lifetime warranty.
So don't be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative.
The 5010 has been a staff favourite with our very own Andy riding one for a couple of years. This is an incredible bike for the Tweed Valley so get in touch or pop into our store to have a look at this Bike.
