Santa Cruz Nomad C - 2021/22


Tap into your inner wanderer every time you sit on the Nomad- hunt those big mountain lines, and explore your existence in the process. Parking lot meets before exploring unknown trails, or getting ready to rip the familiar ones. The Nomad is here for the ride, and ready to take a beating. 

Every Nomad starts as an open book- you get to write its story. For a little help, there's sealed bearings in all pivots, a lower link grease port, shuttle guards and free bearing replacement. That means, an easy bearing service can make your frame last, well forever. 

Santa Cruz offered the 27.5" wheels for an easy, straightforward choice- appealing to the widest variety of rider styles and sizes. With the Nomad, the hardest choice SC wanted to give their riders was whether or not they'd need a full or half face helmet. 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 chain stay lengths mean handling is never compromised, regardless of frame size.

170mm & 38mm diameter fork, with 170mm of VPP rear suspension- compatible with both coil and air shocks. Keep the details dirty with a mud flap protecting the rear shock- and tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, with rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.
