Builders of the best carbon and aluminium full suspension and hardtail mountain bikes, Santa Cruz was formed in 1993 in Seabright Cannery, California. Santa Cruz have everything from multi-world cup winning downhill bikes to new school hooligan 29ers. Highlights include the, famous V-10, the genre defining Santa Cruz Nomad and the adaptable Hightower. Santa Cruz also build hardtails such as the racy Highball . The Stigmata is even a dabble in 'cross bikes. Multiple build kits are available on each model. This allows you to tailor for your budget or spec a dream machine. Fans of 27.5+ don't miss out, as Santa Cruz were an early adopter. Their Hightower, Tallboy and Chameleon models all give you a 29/ 650+ swap option. Many Santa Cruz bikes also allow you to choose a high grade CC carbon, more affordable C grade or cost efficient aluminium frame option.
We offer an amazing range of Santa Cruz frames. Most models are available with the incredibly light CC grade carbon (the Tallboy, Hightower, Bronson, Nomad, Stigmata, V10 and 5010 all feature), while a welcome return to aluminium has brought the Santa Cruz Tallboy, Bronson, Chameleon and 5010 within the reach of mortal wallets for the first time in years. Biketart love a good custom build and will help you to choose exactly the right specification and Santa Cruz frame. This will help you create a bike with no equal. We can also match some existing components to a new frame and bring a new lease of life to your daily ride. Santa Cruz also offer their own range of amazing carbon Reserve Wheels.
Santa Cruz are no copycats when it comes to suspension. Their VPP system, now on its fourth incarnation on the amazing new 170mm travel Nomad, is recognised as one of the most efficient pedaling platforms to grace any bike. Anyone who rides it will testify to the truly bottomless feel it gives to the ride. The setup has an effective 'virtual pivot' means that squat is minimized and the suspension stroke remains even. Bounce back from your own clunky pedaling efforts is almost non-existent. Santa Cruz truly are suspension masters and the system needs to be ridden to be believed.
Don't worry, hardtail fans, you have not been left behind. The Santa Cruz Highball consistently features on XC race tracks the world over. Privateers and sponsored riders alike love it. Recent geometry tweaks making it more fun to ride than ever before. On the flip side of hardtail land, the ever reliable Chameleon can run as a 29er or 27.5" and is designed for bikepacking, or trail centres or...radically...just mountain biking. Rather more single-purpose is the Santa Cruz Jackal, a pure bred jump bike with a taste for whips, tricks and flips.
No matter what your mountain biking style, there is a Santa Cruz to match your choice of trails and your budget. From the biggest hits with the Nomad, to messing about in the woods with the Bronson, to hitting the bikepacking trails aboard a Chameleon and just about any other sort of mountain biking you can imagine, Santa Cruz have the carbon or aluminium bike for you. Santa Cruz - the best riding bikes, bar none.
