The Santa Cruz Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how lawless a single-crown bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. With the 4th iteration, Santa Cruz nudged the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, while keeping the Nomad completely rideable. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across to one of Santa Cruz's trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear, which means feather-light small bump sensitivity, a supportive mid-stroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference. Full shock compatibility creates challenges when trying to cram everything into the precious bottom bracket area. A flip-chip feature on the lower link allows a high setting as "regular", the way the bike's mostly meant to be ridden, and a low setting as being closer to full on DH status. To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The whole package is crowned with a raft of subtle yet essential details. Bolt-on downtube protectors and shuttle guards act as a helmet for your frame, a replaceable front line against abuse. An integrated shock fender has also been added to keep crud out of the suspension. Details include 170mm VPP suspension, internal cable routing, 148mm rear thru-axle spacing, bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, ISCG-05 carbon tabs and a 73mm threaded BB for creak-free riding. Only compatible with single chainring drivetrain designs. Lifetime warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
