Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad Carbon CC X01 RCT Coil Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 description:
It's no secret that the industry is evolving in the direction of lower, longer, and slacker geometries as riders demand bikes capable of tackling terrain that would've been the sole domain to dual-crown downhill bikes just a few years ago. Aware of these market forces, the designers and engineers at Santa Cruz gave the Nomad Carbon CC XO1 RCT Coil Complete Mountain Bike an aggressive facelift that pushes it further into the gravity end of the riding spectrum. Even though the fourth-gen Nomad is more aggressive and gravity-focused than ever, it never strays far from the original Nomad's roots, namely its ability to pedal back up for another wicked descent that leaves you with a euphoric surge of adrenaline coursing through your veins. In making the newest Nomad, the engineers at Santa Cruz were inspired by their downhill-dominating V10. This resulted in a complete redesign of the Nomad's VPP linkage, giving it a lower-link mounted shock, alongside a flip-chip with high/low geometry settings for altering its stance to your riding style. Looking further into the fourth-gen Nomad's details, you'll be even more impressed with thoughtful additions to the bike's most sensitive regions--mainly with the cleanly integrated shuttle guard, but also with the mud-blocking shock fender and aluminum ear cover that protects the swingarm from dropped chains. While the previous generation Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro racing, the newest version is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity rig you can 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 the descent, yet the steeper 75-degree seat tube angle places you in an optimal pedaling position without struggling to shift you...
