Santa Cruz Bicycles
Skateboarding legend Rob Roskopp founded Santa Cruz Bicycles in a space the size of a single-car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz, California, in 1993. The nascent brand’s first bike, the Tazmon, was a single-pivot full-suspension bike that rattled the industry’s established sensibilities. At that time, full-suspension bikes were not the norm, but Roskopp saw the potential of this innovation, and the company has continued to push the boundaries to build bikes that allow riders to go further, faster, and higher, for longer.
Today, Santa Cruz manufactures a wide range of high-performance off-road bikes, from gravel grinders to long-travel downhill machines. Santa Cruz also produces high-end Reserve carbon wheels, and like the brand’s frames, have a lifetime warranty. Its sister company, Juliana, is dedicated to producing a full range of performance bikes for women.
The Path stocks a wide variety of Santa Cruz models to fit every budget and riding style, as well as Reserve rims and complete wheelsets.
