Product Details


Always a heavy hitter, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad 6 C GX AXS Complete Mountain Bike brings a level of confidence to every trail. Built to bash, it's a hugely capable bike that's surprisingly adept at climbing, too. If you're riding gnarly terrain, bike parks, or shuttles, the Nomad is the most fun in the Santa Cruz lineup: equal parts playful and forgiving, the original daily driver DH bike you can pedal. This build features SRAM's new GX AXS Transmission drivetrain, a wireless marvel that's as burly as the rest of the components on this beast. This is a shining example of what a mountain bike can do, get on board!


170mm Rear Travel

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.

Cane Creek 40 Integrated Headset

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. We even threw in Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction and silence noise.

Shock AdjustmentsSeparate and Independent Open / Threshold Positions, Air Spring Pressure, External Rebound

ISCG-05 Tabs for Chainguide Compatibility

Single Grease Port on Lower Link for Swift and Easy Maintenance

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.

Bottle Cage MountWithin the front triangle, fits piggyback shocks.

Integrated Flip Chip for High/Low Geometry Adjustment

Molded Rubber Swingarm and Downtube Protection

148mm Rear Axle Spacing

Threaded Bottom Bracket

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


RockShox ZEB Select+The next evolution of single crown awesome is here. RockShox created a whole new breed of fork, designed to challenge the limits and take on the world’s toughest Enduro tracks. ZEB’s stiff yet versatile single crown 38mm chassis and machined good looks, pack a punch, and deliver a clear tactical advantage to win races.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle AXS TransmissionThe next generation SRAM Eagle Transmission is a radically robust, fully integrated and interdependent wireless drivetrain. Built around the universal constant of the wheel axle itself, the Full Mount hangerless attachment creates a far stronger connection to the frame with a super tough derailleur. Shifting under load is made possible due to a combination of X-SYNC technology and cassette mapping, creating seamless shifts even during your hardest power output. The new AXS Pods are extremely ergonomic and highly customizable, so shifting gears is light and intuitive.


SRAM HS2 RotorsWhen it comes to heat dissipation, and therefore power, thicker is better. SRAM's new HS2 rotors are 2.0mm thick, helping them avoid heat fade and maintain their power on long descents.

SRAM Code Bronze StealthSRAM's latest Code features a new lever assembly, designed to complement the latest AXS components. It features the same powerful four-piston caliper and customization options, but with a new, lower-profile form that sits closer to your bars.


Maxxis Assegai Front TireWith tall knobs that punch through dust and loam to find traction, this tire offers support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireA real rider's tire choice, these Minions bring a mix of rolling resistance, wear, and performance that can't be beat.

Mixed Wheel Sizing (S-XL Sizes)The mixed "mullet" wheel sizing of top level racers has trickled down to the rest of us: with a 29" wheel up front for maximum grip and rollover clearance, you'll have a smoother and more solid stance through rough stuff and turns. The smaller 27.5" rear wheel helps you initiate those turns, while keeping the rear end maneuverable and out of your shorts.

RaceFace ARC Offset 30mm 29" / 27.5" Rims Laced to DT Swiss 370 HubsAll-around rad ARC rims are slightly tweaked with an new asymmetrical profile. Fully dialed to be stiffer, stronger and optimally balanced, these crazy-versatile rims come in every width imaginable to cover XC to plus bikes and everything in between. These rims are laced to tough DT Swiss hubs.
