THE TRAIL BIKES
THAT LOVE TO PLAY
Santa Cruz 5010 & Juliana Furtado
The Santa Cruz 5010 and Juliana Furtado have always been more capable than many expected. But now with a high-traction 29-inch wheel up front, a manueverable 27.5-incher out back, and even more refined suspension, their touch is even more deft on the trails. Featuring a 140mm fork and 130mm of VPP rear suspension travel, 5010 and Furtado were made for sporty perfromance.

MXed FOR PERFORMANCE
Mixed wheels–the combo of a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear–really do blend the best attributes of both wheel sizes. In challenging terrain, the front provides good traction and roll-over, while the smaller rear wheel maintains the bikes' jump-happy, slalom-turn loving tendencies.
We gave these bikes a very straight, highly progressive leverage curve to give the rider plenty of predictable support, bottom-out resistance, and playful response. This means the travel is accessible and bigger impacts aren’t as jarring as you’d expect from a short-travel bike.
Proportional geometry means certain attributes are scaled up as the frame size gets larger so that whatever your stature, there is no compromise when it comes to fit, balance and suspension performance. The larger the frame, the longer the 5010 and Furtado's chainstay length, and the steeper the effective seat tube angle. Similarly, the carbon layups on these bikes are size-specific as well, meaning relative stiffness is scaled proportionately to create a consistent ride feel across the size range.
5010 and Furtado come with Glovebox–an in-frame storage solution that includes a set of well thought-out pouches for tools and tubes. The compartment is topped by a hatch that secures with a Swiss watch-quality latching mechanism–pretty trick.
When Santa Cruz and Juliana moved to a lower link-driven shock configuration, everything about their bikes got better…except the ability to see how much sag you were running. With the addition of their new sag window, the issue is solved and setting sag is a snap.
