Big mountain riding is a nomadic existence. Meeting friends in farflung car parks. Pinpointing trails you're not sure are even rideable. Sending the ones you know are. Shiny new bling gets battered, shattered, and bruised. That’s life. That’s how it should be. That's why the Nomad exists. Santa Cruz chose 27.5 wheels as the go-to for the widest variety of riding styles and rider sizes. The 64-degree head angle and 77-degree seat angle puts you in the sweet spot when winching up to the top of a big drop in. Meanwhile, proportional chainstay lengths mean handling is never compromised, regardless of frame size. There is also 170mm of travel, 38mm diameter fork, and 170mm of VPP rear suspension compatible with both coil and air shocks. The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock, plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.
