Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad Carbon C S Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 description:
The Santa Cruz Nomad has always been a bike for the aggressive rider who seeks every opportunity to get airborne, charges downhill at ridiculous rates of speed, and prefers technical lines to dumbed-down options. It's also been a bike that could climb back uphill after the blistering descent is finished, giving it a bit more balance than many bikes in the long-travel category. Building on this legacy for the 2018 model year, the Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon C S Complete Mountain Bike dives deeper into the gravity spectrum with its lower-link mounted shock and flip-chip with high/low geometry settings. This redesigned platform takes inspiration from the downhill-crushing V10, yet like all previous Nomads, it retains the ability to pedal back up for one last heart-pumping descent. Although the previous generation Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro domination, the newest generation is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity rig that you can actually pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds. Think of it as a freeride bike for riders seeking one that's versatile enough to lap the resort park and shuttle downhill laps, then pedal along backcountry epics the very next day. The 65-degree head tube angle (in high setting) and longer reach keep things calm and comfortable on wicked descents, yet the steeper 75-degree seat tube angle puts you in an optimal pedaling position without struggling to shift your weight forward on steep climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm provides the ability to fine-tune its geometry to your exact riding preferences and local terrain. Keep it in the high setting for a more efficient pedaling platform on rides with a mix of blistering descents and steep climbs. Conversely, you can switch it to the low setting for an even slacker geometry (head tube of 64. 6 degrees) that's purely aimed on downhill laps at the resort and shuttle runs up the pass where climbing isn't an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geo...
