Making a welcome return in aluminium as well as high end carbon, the Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminium 2017 just got more affordable and, dare we say, longer lasting. Already proven to to be the go to trail bike for everyone from occasional XC racers, to Dales crossing 'real' mountain bikers, to home counties tech trail rider, the 5010 sets the benchmark against which the whole industry measures its mid-travel trail bikes. The 130mm VPP rear end offers bottomless feeling suspension that will soak up everything up Alpine descents and the new 148mm Boost rear end adds bucket loads of confidence in the tracking department. With 32,34 or 35mm fork options up front (we like the new Fox Rhythm fork for looks) you can decide just how 'all mountain' you want your Santa Cruz 5010 to be, depending on how light you want your bike to end up. SRAMs 1x11 gearing is not proven, across the board, to offer all the climbing potential you need and, as long as you aren't intending to descend the Hardnott pass on the tarmac, plenty of top end speed at the bottom of the cassette. SRAM also provide the 5010 aluminium with brakes in the form of the new 'Level' a seriously trail ready disc set up with XC weight and all mountain performance. Added to the impressive groupset, you get a ton of high end finishing kit on the Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminium 2017, with bars and stem from Race Face, Cane Creek headset and a WTB saddle. The brands don't stop there; Maxxis provide the rubber on all three models, with big volume 2.25 and 2.3 tyres shod onto WTBs excellent i23 TCS rims and, as with all Santa Cruz bikes, set up tubeless as standard. Those 27.5" wheels will roll over almost anything, while providing tight enough handling for the trickiest hairpin. The finishing touches come in the detail. That hydroformed aluminium frame is visually indistinguishable from its carbon stable mate and carries very little weight penalty, while also be stealth dropper routed (the S AM model actually comes with a Reverb Stealth as part of the package!). All in, the Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminium 2017 may well be the ultimate alloy trail bike - swing your leg over on at Biketart and find out.

For a better idea of just how well the 5010 rides, and the sort of riding you should expect to be doing on this brilliant bike, check out this review by Blister.
