Chilled springy vibes for this one! Craig Evans, Josh Lewis and Dan Paley getting to know the new 5010.
Santa Cruz connected us with the reclusive talent behind the 5010 launch video, Handy MacAskill, and we asked him a few questions.
It’s too early to tell how exactly the new 5010 compares to our old favorite as we’ve not been able to fully test it on all our usual test tracks, but so far, so good.
The Santa Cruz 5010 has been entirely revised and boasts a new frame, geometry and linkage. Its distinctive playful character, however, remains untouched.

Wondering why Santa Cruz built the Heckler with 27.5" wheels? 165mm cranks? A smaller battery pack? It's all here, in a discussion Between Two Berms!
The Californian brand took their time in developing the bike and are quite late to the eMTB party. Have they made good use of the time it took to develop their first eMTB?
Two weeks in Sedona, Arizona, with the least expensive Hightower.
Burlier than a Tallboy, but less travel than a Megatower, is the 2020 Santa Cruz Hightower the ultimate all-mountain bike?
In addition to seeing a boost in travel from 110mm to 120mm out back, the “downhiller’s XC” bike also earned more aggressive geometry.
With about 50% more heft than a similarly specced non-electric mountain bike, Santa Cruz was not about to find playfulness in a weight loss program alone.
