Product Info

Got some heavy trails in the area calling your name? The Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad C R Complete Mountain Bike is the latest version of Santa Cruz's all-mountain smasher, a carbon workhorse adorned with battle-worthy components that's up for some bad decisions. 170mm of travel means you'll be able to get away with excessive looseness, but don't worry - the bike'll get you through. The Nomad's been around for a long time, and this one's the best yet. Size-specific chainstays, a slacker front end, and a completely waggle-free rear suspension design all make the Best Bike Everâ„¢ even more desirable.

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.
