Santa Cruz Nomad


As Santa Cruz’s burliest bike in the non-DH lineup, the Nomad is set to destroy all boundaries. Redesigned linkage, shock rates, and adjustable frame geometry create a totally new experience for those riders who want to send the gnarliest lines. One part art, two parts engineering, and three parts madness - this bike will eat up whatever you can dish out. This monster isn’t afraid to tackle big, rugged climbs and even bigger, gnarlier descents.
