Why We Like The Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon C R Mountain Bike

The Nomad Carbon R Mountain Bike is the ultimate enduro and freeride bike for the rider who wants to ride everything from big-mountain trails to bike parks with an emphasis on the downhill. The V6 Nomad hangs onto its freeride roots with a 27.5in rear wheel, yet delivers a more capable on-trail feel with a 29in front wheel that rolls over everything from rock steps to angled roots with ease. 170mm of VPP-powered rear suspension is ready for big drops and chundery trails, plus Santa Cruz updated the leverage curve with lower anti-squat to limit harshness from square-edge impacts. We’re pretty stoked about the new Glovebox storage compartment under the water bottle cage, which lets us stash a snack or spare layer along with the included Tool Wallet and Tube Purse. The head tube angle is stretched out so an ultra-slack 63.5 degrees (low position) for added stability in rowdy terrain, while a steep 77.6-degree seat tube angle (low position, size large) ensures an efficient pedaling platform.

Santa Cruz kicks things off on this value-oriented build with their Carbon C frame construction, and they now utilize size-specific stiffness standards to ensure an equal ride feel across all sizes. Standout features include the 170mm travel RockShox Zeb R fork which we appreciate for its burly 38mm stanchions that deliver exceptional torsional strength for added stability. SRAM’s NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain delivers exceptional value and shifting qualities, plus it's cross-compatible with all Eagle drivetrain components. Race Face AR Offset 30 wheels are among our favorite value-focused alloy wheels for their rugged durability. This Nomad build is a worthy addition to a trail or XC bike as a dedicated downhill brawler within a well-rounded quiver, and it also holds up as a downhill-oriented quiver of one for hitting the park and sending it on trail rides.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
