2024 Santa Cruz Nomad

Santa Cruz Nomad

All the Travel and MX Wheels

Load up the van, hit the road, climb a mountain, hammer it back down, huck the road gap, throw the bike back in the van, drive to the bike park and do laps on laps. Hell, you could even rock up to the startline on it. The Nomad’s forte is being ready and willing to go wherever, whenever. The only thing it needs is a rider willing to press send.

Carbon C & CC Frames

A 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® Suspension

VPP 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.

The Glovebox & Tool Wallet

Seal whatever you want to carry on your ride inside your downtube. Secure and easy to access, the Glovebox™ comes with a dedicated Tool Wallet and Tube Purse to help organize your stuff. Simply cavernous!
