Product Info

The bike everyone wants to ride at the component level most would choose, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad C S Complete Mountain Bike makes a lot of sense for a lot of riders. This is a bicycle without a real performance ceiling - the harder you push it the more it comes alive. This latest model sports proportional rear ends, meaning the ride quality doesn't suffer at the ends of the sizing spectrum: they all rip equally hard. Pair that with a new, stiffer suspension layout and the components to get the most out of it, and the Nomad is an all-time all-mountain bike.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ Rear ShockSuper Deluxe Select+ is built for the latest breed of hard hitting enduro and trail bikes. Offering the ride control you need paired with a user-friendly threshold adjustment all rolled into a great high performance-to-value package. They even threw in Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction and silence noise.
