Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad C XT Coil Complete Mountain Bike is a bona fide classic, getting classier and classier with each iteration. The latest Nomad sees an even stiffer rear end and a slightly slacker front end than its predecessors. This translates to even more stability through treachery, an always-on-rails lower center of gravity, and an amazing suspension setup. It's bulletproof from top to bottom, with Shimano's 12 speed XT group and powerful 4-piston brakes. This is an all-mountain bike that leaves you wanting nothing, except more time to ride it.

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 Coil Select+ Rear ShockWorthy of the latest "super bikes" and ready for all the rampant rock gardens, greasy half exposed roots, soft banked corners, and loamy goodness. The mountains are calling, and Super Deluxe Coil is there to answer.

Fork

Fox 38 Float Performance EliteWith a stiffness-to-weight ratio never before seen in a single crown fork, this is the new fork of choice for big terrain.

The highly tuneable GRIP2 damper and internals are also second to none.

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.

Santa Cruz Carbon HandlebarDesigned and made exclusively by Santa Cruz, using everything they've learned from creating World Championship winning carbon bicycles. Each bar has a dialed amount of stiffness, keeping vibration in check and minimizing arm fatigue. Discrete markers take the pain out of set-up alignments and stealth branding keeps things class.
