Video: Santa Cruz Get Creative With Their Lockdown Launch Edit for the 5010

bigquotesNow more than ever it’s important to get creative with your surroundings.

The Santa Cruz 5010 has always been the bike that turns obstacles into features but now with the fourth generation upon us, it expands on the concept of the little bike that has big ideas.

Fun-loving 27.5-inch wheels, 130mm of lower-link VPP travel (paired with a 140mm fork) and radically confident-inspiring geometry including, new for any Santa Cruz bicycle, size specific rear stay lengths. It’s the kind of bike that makes any trail feel as familiar as the back of your hand.

 Absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed that! Watched it thrice this morning, lol why?!
The skills on the handbike are equally as top notch as the mammoth editing task this must have been!
Slick job, with all the sound effects to boot.
Not to mention the trail building and swept dirt jumps!

Reminds me of being child. Literally made my day. Showed it to my kids, they're trying their hand at lego biking in the garden as a result.

What an awesomely fresh idea for a launch vid.

Cheers Santa Cruz!

 The original Bronson launch video made me want a Bronson (and I bought one), the second Bronson release video made me want one of them (Ratty in Madeira) but I couldn't justify it. Ratty's tripping Bronson one also tempted me.

Peaty's 5010 launch video in Scotland made me want and buy a 5010.

Now I want this 5010.

I fear I am a sucker for advertising.....

 Super cool video!

Makes me remember the old fingerboards and RAD magazine.-

 So creative and appropriate. Good job SC.
In years and years time we will be able look back at that and it'll be a testament to the horrendous year we have all endured but that has also shown everyone's pure desire to ride (pro or hacker) ,even in confined spaces during this period.

 Trials legend and now accomplished hand model... is there anything Danny Mac can't do?

 Danny should release a shot-for-shot real life video of that. Maybe without crushing his nards though.
