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.

Drive Train

SRAM NX Eagle™Eagle™ Technology revolutionized the mountain bike experience by offering riders a 1x drivetrain solution that is purpose-built to be lightweight, strong and intuitive, with the gear range to ride on any terrain. NX Eagle™ drivetrain is the newest addition to the Eagle™ 1x ecosystem, and shares technologies with XX1, X01 and GX drivetrains, which makes it 100-percent compatible within the Eagle™ ecosystem. NX Eagle™ delivers an ease of entry that will bring the benefit of Eagle™ range and Eagle™ performance to more riders than ever before.

Brakes

SRAM Guide RE BrakesetOriginally designed for heavy and fast E-MTBs, SRAM's Guide RE brakes combine proven Guide R lever assembly with a powerful 4-piston caliper derived from the gravity-focused Code brakes. Guide RE provides real, usable on-trail control—optimal power and modulation mean speed can be controlled in all terrain and in all situations, both uphill and downhill.

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

WTB ST i29 TCS 2.0 Rims Laced to SRAM MTH HubsAt 29mm internal width, these aluminum rims pair perfectly with modern trail tires, giving great grip and feel. The hubs are solid performers too, adding up to a capable and durable package designed for the long haul.

Maxxis Assegai TiresThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer 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.

Additional Features

Race Face Aeffect Dropper PostA rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminium makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits, complete with internal cable routing compatible with modern frame design.
