Santa Cruz Stigmata
Picture one of those days where you just don’t have enough time to make it out to your favorite trail. Or, perhaps it’s been wet and the trails aren’t suitable to ride. You can increase your odds of riding more often if you have a bike you can ride right from your door. This Stigmata is your perfect all-purpose drop bar bike. Throw a power meter on it and grind out those intervals. Pick a big gear and go mash for 20 minutes when that’s all the time you’ve got. Pick a direction and start pedalling. Railing the paved turns has never been so fun, and bunny-hopping that sunken manhole has never been less sketchy. This is a road bike for mountain bikers - and you’re gonna love it.

“I bought this bike with the intention of racing the Dirty Kanza 200 in 2017, and proceeded to build it up with a fairly light parts kit. It’s currently set up with a 1x11 drivetrain, Oval direct mount chainring, some Clement 38c tires, and I couldn’t be happier with the performance I’ve gotten out of it. I have an extensive list of road, ‘cross and track bikes that I’ve owned, and this is the best drop bar bike I’ve ever ridden".

Once you throw a leg over the Stigmata, you may just forget every other drop-bar bike you've ever ridden.
The Stiggy strikes an amazing balance between head angle, chainstay length, and bb drop.
This is a bike that can serve triple duty - 'cross racing, gravel riding, and day-long road rides are all in the bag of tricks.
The aesthetic of the Stigmata frame is striking. It's bold, but also elegant and refined.
In typical Santa Cruz fashion, the Stigmata is constructed with function foremost, and it's stout structure delivers the goods.
Clean lines are partly due to the slick cable routing. Nothing but smooth surfaces to handle.
A rubberized chainstay protector says: go ahead, get rowdy.
Multiple drivetrain configurations are available to suit your needs.
Not a bad wheelset for some 40c tubeless tires on this bike. Step up to the Ultegra build, and you'll really be in business.
DT Swiss hubs roll smooth, and keep you riding longer.
The brake hose is cleanly routed through the chainstay.
Could the front brake be routed any more cleanly? We think not.
The 15mm thru-axle fork is robust and offers ample tire/mud clearance for whatever you get yourself into.
A Zipp Service Course alloy cockpit makes a lot of sense. Stiff, strong, and good ergonomics.
This thing is so off-road ready, you're gonna wish it had a dropper post.
Less is more at the rear dropout. Such pleasing details in this frame.
700x40c Maxxis Rambler EXO tires are so buttery smooth and supple. The tread is effective, but not overkill for mixed surface riding.
A WTB Silverado keeps a low profile and a sleek aesthetic.
Swing by and take a look at one of these amazing bikes!
