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.

130mm VPP® rear travel

  • Upper-link mounted shock
  • It’s still VPP® - two short, counter-rotating links that connect the front and rear triangle to make a stout frame. Easy
  • serviceable, reliable, lifetime bearing replacement
  • VPP® is a versatile design that allows us to finetune suspension to suit the character of a any model of bicycle, from XC to downhill, and everything in-between. The upper- and lower-link VPP gives us even more options when design the suspension to suit the intended purpose of a bicycle.
