The latest generation of Santa Cruz Nomad CC Frame now has a larger, 29-inch wheel up front paired to a 27.5-inch rear wheel. Mixing the best of both worlds when you don’t know where you might be riding tomorrow. If you're stomping gaps and stamping passports you're no stranger to travel. The Nomad features 170mm of VPP™ rear suspension to help you press send.
The Nomad is exceptional at absorbing the biggest hits so its rider can charge harder, with more confidence, in the very worst terrain. But because it's still pedal efficient, getting up to the best, highest trails isn't a chore like some other bikes.
On the Nomad 6, Santa Cruz's goal was to make the suspension have better sensitivity and grip while also improving platform consistency throughout the travel. Lowering the anti-squat reduced pedal kickback on big square-edge hits at speed, all while improving the overall sensitivity of the suspension to maintain traction at all speeds. Up and downhill. By reducing the starting leverage of the latest Nomad, we were able to improve body-weight influenced geometry stability throughout the travel. While reducing progression allowed the suspension to have consistently better tracking qualities throughout the stroke.
And because everyone loves traveling with carry-on luggage the latest Nomad has a Glovebox too. Stash your ride essentials in downtube inside the included Tool Wallet and Tube Purse.
Chainstay length and seat angle are matched to the frame size (STA steepens and rear centre grows as frame size increases) so that every rider, no matter what height, gets the same balance of geometry and handling characteristics. Bigger riders means bigger stresses on bigger frames. So we tailor stiffness for every size to make sure everyone gets the same ride quality.
The Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon frame has the option of a Fox Float X2 air shock or a Fox DHX2 coil.
CC spec carbon frame is the highest level carbon Santa Cruz offer, as light as possible and super-stiff. Stunning build quality and finish all backed up with Santa Cruz's fantastic lifetime warranty and pivot bearing replacement policy.
