Product Info

Bigger, badder, and more downhill savvy than ever before, the new Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad 4 C S Complete Mountain Bike boasts a fully redesigned geometry and a progressive lower-link shock design. Complementing the raked out 65° head angle and VPP® suspension, this build features plush RockShox absorbers that give it the smooth sailing feel of a DH rig while the cutting edge GX Eagle™ 1x12 drivetrain and lightweight carbon frame work to retain pedal-ability on the ups. If you're a dirt cowboy who loves to take the spicy line and never shies away from burly features (whether natural or man-made), then the reworked Santa Cruz Nomad 4 C S Complete Mountain Bike is the steed you oughta kick a leg over.

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.

170mm 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.

RockShox Super Deluxe R ShockThe directive was simple. Engineer a shock that does for rear-suspension performance what Pike did for forks. Simple? Don't bet on it. A gamble? Absolutely. It required a complete change in the way we approach shock design. It meant focusing on performance first and leaving old constraints behind. And it gave RockShox a clear path to develop the world's lowest-friction shock -- Super Deluxe. Metric sizing gives Super Deluxe significantly increased bushing overlap, which, together with a sophisticated new bushing profile, virtually eliminates friction in the shock. A new damper holds the shock high in its stroke and offers unparalleled traction. Unshackled from the old obstacles of shock design, Super Deluxe is free to tackle new ones -- on the trail. This changes everything.

Shock AdjustmentsExternal Rebound Damping | Rapid Recovery Rebound Adjust | Air Spring Pressure Adjust

Progressive Lower-Link Shock ConfigurationSimilar to that of Santa Cruz's V10 downhill bike, this configuration creates a shock rate that's supportive and progressive -- an ideal scenario for rough terrain.

Bolt-On Shuttle Guard/Downtube Protector + Shock FenderTo ward of wayward rocks and the sandpaper effect of tailgate transport. The integrated fender works to keep crud out of the suspension.

High & Low Geometry Settings via Flip Chip in LinkThe high setting sets the bike up for added versatility, while the low setting slacks it out to near-DH levels. In either setting, the Nomad's longer reach equates to added stability.

Fork

RockShox Lyrik RCSimply put, the RockShox Lyrik is an absolute weapon for enduro riders everywhere. It makes more control at higher speeds on big burly terrain not only possible, but also addictive.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™ ShifterThe challenges of riding a mountain bike should be kept to roots, rocks, mud, trees, jumps, drops and breathing. Putting total control of your gear selection into the thumb of one hand, it's simple to find the right gear, right now. The GX Eagle™ trigger shifter is the control center of the Eagle™ drivetrain. Its internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability.

SRAM GX Eagle™ CranksetThe SRAM GX Eagle™ crankset delivers consistent performance every time out. Featuring SRAM's X-SYNC™2 tooth profile chainring, the GX crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth's thickness is precisely toleranced and controlled to work seamlessly with the chain's inner and outer links.

SRAM XG1275 Eagle™ 10-50T CassetteRide anywhere with this wide range XG-1275, 10- to 50-tooth Eagle™ cassette that provides the right gear. Fast on the flats. Control on the climbs. Dictate your own pace, anywhere. Only Eagle™ technology is the 1x drivetrain engineered for infinite freedom. FULL PIN™ technology uses lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that's light and strong. The open design similar to X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life. New X-GLIDE™2 improves both inboard and outboard shifting, as well as chain retention.

SRAM GX Eagle™ Rear DerailleurThis new GX derailleur not only answers the Eagle™ drivetrain's need for greater capacity, but it's also the next evolution of SRAM's proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC™ lower pulley allows for a 10- to 50-tooth cassette and also adds to Eagle's overall smooth-pedaling feel. The new Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. CAGE LOCK™ has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle™ derailleur's performance and overall durability.

SRAM GX Eagle™ 12-Speed ChainThe GX Eagle™ chain is designed with SRAM's Eagle™ geometry, the GX Eagle™ chain features solid pin construction, Eagle™ PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.

Brakes

Avid Code R Hydraulic Disc BrakesetCode's little brother just got tougher. With an all new, forged dual-diameter, four-piston caliper, Code R offers increased power without compromising control or feel. With a simplified design to make it a little easier on the wallet, Code R maintains the Code family values of reliability, strength, and ridiculously easy serviceability. Now featuring the fade-free braking of TaperBore™ Technology and the sleek yet oh-so-powerful integrated reservoir on top of Avid's proven Power Reserve Geometry™, the Code R will make you think before you call this brake anyone's "little" brother.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF is the standard by which all other downhill tires are measured. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II | Rear TireThe Minion DHR II is a complete redesign. Acceleration, cornering and braking have all been improved. The shoulder knobs were borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF and then beefed up to handle duty as a rear tire. The center tread has been heavily ramped and siped to roll fast and track straight under braking. Pair the DHR II with the Minion DHF for the ultimate aggressive riding combo.

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.
