Santa Cruz Bicycles Nomad Carbon CC X01 Eagle Coil Mountain Bike

Purchase - $8249.00

With all of the confusing terminology about rearward axle paths, progressivity, and aggressive geometry numbers, sometimes its best to go for a gravity-minded shred-sled thats stood the test of time. The Nomad began years ago with enduro roots and as the popularity of 29in sleds brushed other 27. 5 wheeled bikes aside, the Nomad stuck around thanks to its ability to shred everything in sight with a playful perspective.

The bike also sees improved suspension kinematics for a better overall feel on the trail, and it's now compatible with SRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger to make finding replacement hangers a breeze.Most of the changes lie in the bike's geometry, the most significant being the move to a 77. 5-degree seat tube angle--a near 4-degree increase over the previous Nomad. This gives the bike a more upright pedaling position that makes steep climbs more manageable and provides increased comfort for long-mileage days. Naturally, the bike gets a bit slacker too, moving from a 74. 6-degree head tube to 73. 7 (in the low position), with longer reach figures to give you that edge when you're sending big lines in unfamiliar terrain.
