Santa Cruz 5010 Alloy S 27.5" Bike

The Santa Cruz 5010 Alloy S 27.5" Bike brings you the same performance features as the C and CC-level carbon frames just in a slightly more price-friendly and strong, aluminium package. It also features an awesome components list that includes Fox suspension front and rear, SRAM’s popular GX 1x11 drivetrain and Guide R brakes and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post.

Advanced Full Suspension Frame

The 5010 Alloy’s frame has a more aggressive geometry than previous models, putting the rider in the ideal position for attacking rapid descents with confidence. In addition, the frame features Santa Cruz’s unique VPP® (Virtual Pivot Point) rear suspension hardware, which drastically improves the stiffness and durability. The result of this is that the 5010 Alloy has a playful character and a healthy appetite for devouring the climbs!

Easy Assembly

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
