As the sport of enduro mountain biking grows, so does the need for a bike that can handle evolving course designs. Nomad takes this idea to the limit, resulting in a surprisingly rideable bike that's built to rip on gravity-oriented tracks. 170mm of Santa Cruz VPP suspension provides a linear shock rate that mimics the feel of longer-travel DH bikes, and the RockShox Super Deluxe Air R rear shock delivers ample control, from big-air jump lines to technical, rocky descents. 27.5-inch WTB ST i25 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber are built around Boost hub spacing for increased torsional strength, and the RockShox Yari RC fork smooths brake-bumped berms and sketchy landings to keep you focused on the line ahead. Smart details show that Santa Cruz knows a thing or two about gravity-fueled mountain biking, like a bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, double-sealed collet axle pivots, a recessed lower link, and an integrated shock fender to keep your suspension clean. The Nomad Aluminum R build is finished with a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain, Guide R hydraulic disc brakes paired with 200mm rotors, and a Race Face Aeffect dropper post to ensure maximum confidence on absolutely everything you ride.
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon C from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The R build includes SRAM Level T brakes and NX shifter/rear derailleur for trusty stop-and-go service, and the Fox Float Performance shock and Fox Rhythm fork enable confidence at speed. For the 5010 C, Santa Cruz used a slightly less expensive carbon fiber, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the Carbon CC.
