The Santa Cruz 5010 is a fantastic 650b all rounder. With 125mm of travel, this snappy and agile bike is as happy climbing as it is descending. There are off the peg build options covering both alu and carbon iterations. This is the carbon model.
Sram XX1 gives maximum gear options with a single direct moount chain ring. The carbon XX1 cranks are light and super tough. The Rockshox Pike RCT3 fork is a firm favourite and no stranger to "best in class" awards. The Fox Float CTD Factory Shock with Trail Adjust and Kashima Coat provides buttery-smooth action and easily-adjustable rebound and damping settings. Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper post keeps you riding high (or low) as needed.
ENVEs M60 Forty is the rim that will appeal to the broadest range of riders. This rim is light enough for cross-country but has the strength and rigidity to see the rider safely through rugged terrain.
This 5010 really is top spec and the perfect all rounder.
