    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz 5010 XT / C / 27.5

    Expirience with the 5010 XT / C / 27.5 2022 The 5010 XT is the funnest thing in the American´s portfolio. The 140 mm and the small 27.5 wheels invite you to dance down the trail with this bike. You have no idea if you prefer high speed stability or playful handling? Then you can´t go wrong with the 5010 XT. It´s handling is pleasantly balanced. At the seating position, Santa Cruz combines the best of two worlds: It´s balanced character is a good mix of sporty efficiency and a comfortable upright postiion. When the frame is Santa Cruz, its all about quality. The chassis is above average. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
