A unique experience at Poggio All’Agnello
Alongside the supportive and professional Matteo from Tuscany Bike, we got to try out the new Santa Cruz 5010, spending a beautiful day between the headland and coves of Baratti. The new Santa Cruz 5010 is very similar to the previous version, but decidedly more fun and high-energy, maintaining its agile and playful character.
Travelling up from Baratti to Populonia, we tested the new VPP suspension, which turned out to be super efficient. On the rockier paths, the tyres have good grip, and it’s as if the bike was born to absorb all those little bumps while still maintaining such good handling that it takes tricky hairpin bends and other obstacles easily in its stride.
The changes to its structure give the 5010 a better performance on high-speed tracks and uneven descents, especially if you decide to have some fun with its wide tyres that will give you some interesting but brilliant results on the right terrain.
No matter how you choose to ride it, the new Santa Cruz 5010 gave us one of the best trail bike rides we’ve ever had at Poggio all’Agnello.
Poggio All’Agnello is the official Santa Cruz Test Centre
