Santa Cruz Bicycles 5010 2.0 Carbon CC X01 Eagle ENVE Complete Mountain Bike - 2017 description:
Our office isn't one to throw the phrase "dream build" around lightly, and while the 2017 Santa Cruz 5010 2. 0 Carbon CC X01 Eagle ENVE Complete Mountain Bike stops just short of the top-tier, top-dollar, gold-encrusted unicorn status it might achieve with XX1 Eagle, this build lands firmly in glittery cloud territory. Kitted out with SRAM's groundbreaking X01 Eagle one-by 12-speed drivetrain, powerful Guide RSC hydraulic disc brakes, a dropper post, and drool-worthy ENVE M60 Forty carbon fiber hoops, this 5010 carries over the changes we saw with the mid-2016 2. 0 geometry launch to rock steeper runs and bigger lines with gleeful abandon. The 2. 0 redesign encompasses virtually every important aspect of frame geometry. The biggest change is to the head tube, which drops one pip on the protractor from 68 to 67 degrees. That's the same as the previous Bronson model, and it situates the 5010 2. 0 just this side of a slacked-out enduro sled.

While the 5010 2. 0's front end and bottom bracket are about slack reclining, the changes out back tighten things up for more pedaling efficiency and cockpit versatility. The seat tube is steeper, longer, and wider, which benefits both the ups and downs of all-mountain riding. While torquing over the crux of a climb or grinding speed on singletrack, the steeper angle puts the rider in a more efficient pedaling posture, making it easier to stay on top of the pedal stroke. When descending or cleaning lines through rock gardens, the shorter, fatter seat tube allows for more dropper travel, which nets increased stability when increasing speed is the last thing on your mind. The 5010 2. 0's chainstays are stubbier, r...
