$3,999.99
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 R is a great entry point into the 5010’s carbon lineup and features SRAM's NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for all-out speed as well as mountain goat-like climbing ability. Fox keeps you on target and soaks up landings with a Rhythm 34 fork and DPS shock. SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes keep this 5010 under control on fast descents, and 27.5-inch tubeless-ready WTB rims paired to Maxxis Minion tires sport the width and grip to rip it all. 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 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 Megatower 2.0 C R 29-inch
$4,499.00
The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick. 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 Santa Cruz's 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 modular point 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.
Santa Cruz Tallboy 29 R Carbon C
$3,899.99
From charging up punchy climbs and sprinting across flowing singletrack, to rallying over root-infested descents and ripping through turns, the Tallboy 29 Carbon combines all-out speed and rowdy trail-taming agility for nonstop fun everywhere you ride. 110mm of VPP rear suspension lets you mash on the pedals with satisfying response, and thanks to 120mm of Fox suspension up front your point-and-shoot attack is rewarded with predictable, stable handling. Boost hub spacing improves tracking through the rough stuff and, coupled with the geometry-changing Flip Chip, also allows you to run a 27.5+ wheelset for amazing versatility from just one bike. The Tallboy 29 Carbon C R build features SRAM's NX 1x11 transmission, Level T hydraulic disc brakes, and a Race Face Aeffect dropper post to create a trail bike that's ready for your wildest adventures.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Aluminum D
$2,699.99
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. The Santa Cruz Tallboy Aluminum D muddles the line between XC and trail with 110mm of rear wheel travel, paired with a 120mm RockShox Recon RL 120 fork. The aluminum frame delivers outstanding stiffness and low weight while keeping the price range accessible to more riders. Fast-rolling WTB ST i25 29er rims are wrapped in front- and rear-specific Maxxis tires selected to maximize speed and control. The Tallboy climbs almost as well as a straight-up cross-country bike, providing 11 wide-ranging gears from SRAM’s NX drivetrain. But it shows its true colors when the trail turns downward, where SRAM Level hydraulic brakes precisely control speed while the brilliantly simple yet effective suspension design keeps you glued to your line without weighing you down. The Tallboy’s short-travel chassis gives it scalpel-like handling while maintaining tremendous trail capability. At first glance, 110mm of travel might seem like it’ll get overwhelmed on technical trails, but 110mm of travel designed and tuned by the experts at Santa Cruz will usher you through some pretty fast, hairy terrain long before waving the white flag, delivering the descending goods for a fraction of the climbing costs.
