Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C S+
$4,899.00 - $6,099.00
The 5010 is the most fun you can have on two off-road wheels and Danny MacAskill’s wee bike of choice. Turning trails into pump tracks and logs into launches, this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. It's a laser-sharp, agile trail whip that turns on a dime and loves to pop and play. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. A firm beginning stroke makes for responsive, snappy pedaling and provides support for small bump, bump-jump playfulness, while the progressive curve offers the bottom-out resistance to make it feel like there’s a lot more travel than there actually is. There’s also more than enough tire clearance to run just about any size tire, with room to run 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing. The 5010 Carbon C S+ features more performance-oriented components to match your aggressive riding style. SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes and a GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain provide pinpoint speed control, whether you're tucking in for a tight corner or giving it the gas up a scrambly climb. Fox absorbs the chop to keep you tracking truly with a 34 Float fork and DPX2 shock while the 27.5+ tubeless-ready Race Face rim and Maxxis Minion/Rekon tire combo put more fun in every backcountry adventure. Kick it up a few notches with an upgrade to Santa Cruz’s Reserve wheels, featuring a carbon rim that holds up to abuse better than most rims of any material, all while staying true and shaving precious rotating mass. It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool.
Santa Cruz Bronson S Carbon C
$4,899.00
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox 36 F150 Performance fork and Fox Float Performance DPS shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C S
$4,999.00
If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it. The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre-bending folk hero. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design, this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But, because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. And, the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on... Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Knowing your answer, we mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short-offset fork, something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. And, the radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side. Build Highlights - Carbon C frame - FOX 34 Float Performance 130mm fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - Race Face AR Offset 27 29-inch rims - Maxxis Minion tires - 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost
Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C S+
$5,199.00 - $6,399.00
Since the day it was born the Bronson has had the biggest personality in Santa Cruz's range of bikes. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point however twisted you get. There’s plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. Santa Cruz offers build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus using 2.6 tires. It feels like sorta-big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires. The Bronson Carbon C S+ sports a great all-around build, featuring SRAM's quick-shifting GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Code R four-piston hydraulic disc brakes paired to 200mm front and 180mm rear rotors, and a Race Face bar and stem combo. A tubeless-ready Race Face wheelset wrapped in 2.6-inch Maxxis Minion tires provide extra bite on loose terrain, and the Fox 36 fork and RockShox Super Deluxe shock complement the VPP suspension design, giving you off-the-top response with the capability for big airs when you're ready. For even better response and acceleration, choose the optional Santa Cruz Reserve 37 Carbon wheelset and feel your trail bike ascend to a new level of performance.
Santa Cruz Hightower C S
$5,199.00 - $6,399.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. This Hightower Carbon S build pegs the fun meter at 11. You get fantastic front-end control through the stiff and supple RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork, complemented by a Super Deluxe Select+ shock to keep you feeling planted through the roughest rock gardens. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain fires off shifts with minimal effort, while SRAM Code R brakes and wide Race Face AR Offset 30 rims — or Santa Cruz's own Reserve 30 Carbon for enhanced performance — wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires give you maximum control whether you're railing through the turns or bombing a rowdy descent. A Race Face Ride stem, Aeffect R bar, and RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post finish the build.
Santa Cruz Nomad S Carbon C
$5,299.00
With the Nomad Carbon C, the search for all-mountain prowess comes to an end with satisfying certainty. 170mm of Santa Cruz VPP suspension provides a linear shock rate that mimics the feel of longer-travel DH bikes, and the RockShox Super Deluxe Air R rear shock delivers ample control, from big-air jump lines to technical, rocky descents. 27.5-inch e13 TRS rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber are built around Boost hub spacing for increased torsional strength, and the RockShox Lyrik RC fork smooths brake-bumped berms and sketchy landings to keep you focused on your line ahead. Smart details show that Santa Cruz knows a thing or two about gravity-fueled mountain biking, like a bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, double-sealed collet axle pivots, a recessed lower link, and an integrated shock fender to keep your suspension clean. The Nomad Carbon C S build is finished with a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, Code R hydraulic disc brakes paired with 180mm rotors, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post to ensure maximum confidence on absolutely everything you ride.
Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon C S
$5,399.00 - $6,599.00
The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails. Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration – designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks – provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution - either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And, you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector and ribbed chainstay protector. - Carbon C frame - Fox 36 Float Performance 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ rear shock - Choice of Race Face AR Offset 30 rims or Santa Cruz Reserve 30 Carbon rims - 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post - MRP AMg V2 Alloy chainguide

For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or 29-inch thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy CC X01+, Santa Cruz jumps to Eagle territory with SRAM's 1 x 12-speed drivetrain. A Fox 34 Float Performance Elite 130mm fork and Float Performance Elite rear shock are plenty capable, and wide rims create a generous tire profile for ripping through loose, sketchy trail.
Santa Cruz Nomad X01 Carbon CC
$7,199.00 - $8,399.00
Santa Cruz's Nomad Carbon CC X01 reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going they've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference. Full shock compatibility creates challenges when trying to cram everything into the precious bottom bracket area. But the continued evolution of Santa Cruz carbon tech means they're able to create a svelte, strong, swingarm/front triangle combo that's as much art as it is engineering. Santa Cruz even managed to squeeze in a flip-chip feature on the lower link too. Think of the high setting as "regular", the way the bike's mostly meant to be ridden, and the low setting as being closer to full on DH status. To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The X01 build steps-up performance with a SRAM Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.
Santa Cruz 5010 XX1 Carbon CC
$7,999.00 - $9,199.00
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon CC from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The XX1 build features pinnacle components from SRAM, including a 1 x 12-speed Eagle drivetrain for the ultimate in mountain bike simplicity. A Fox Float Factory Kashima shock and Fox 34 Float Factory fork enable confidence when ripping through tight, rocky singletrack. For the 5010 CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight by half a pound, and with the optioned Santa Cruz carbon wheelset you're looking at a truly featherweight mountain bike experience.
