Santa Cruz Nomad 4.0 CC X01 Reserve 27.5
$8,399.99
The Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. With each iteration Santa Cruz nudges the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and each time riders are surprised at just how completely rideable the end result remains. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across to one of their trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going we've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference. Full shock compatibility creates challenges when trying to cram everything into the precious bottom bracket area. But the continued evolution of Santa Cruz's carbon tech means they're able to create a svelt, strong, swingarm/front triangle combo that's as much art as it is engineering. They even managed to squeeze in a flip-chip feature on the lower link too. Think of the high setting as "regular", the way the bike's mostly meant to be ridden, and the low setting as being closer to full on DH status. To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has been adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The whole package is crowned with a raft of subtle yet essential details. Bolt-on downtube protectors and shuttle guards act as a helmet for your frame—a replaceable front line against abuse. An integrated shock fender has also been added to keep crud out of the suspension.
Santa Cruz 5010 2.1 CC X01 Reserve
$7,999.99
A laser sharp, agile backcountry trail whip that corners on rails and loves to pop and jib, the 5010 is a bike handler's dream. As at home on a backcountry mission with Steve Peat as it is hopping fences with Danny MacAskill, the 130mm-travel 5010 sports a short chainstay length and low BB height for a uniquely playful character with an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 67-degree head tube angle, and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes. Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know.
Santa Cruz Bronson 2.1 CC X01 Reserve 27.5
$7,999.99
When Santa Cruz introduced Bronson, it took the market by storm, redefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat. The most visible upgrade is the completely new VPP® link arrangement. The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts. Meanwhile the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke. Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk. The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor.
Santa Cruz Hightower LT CC X01 - Reserve
$7,999.99
Hightower LT is the race-bred offspring of the ever-popular Hightower. With 6” of wheel travel and big, fast 29” wheels, the LT brings a new level of high speed brawn to the Santa Cruz lineup.
Santa Cruz 5010 CC Chris King 40th Anniversary Edition
$6,999.95 $8,999.99 22% Savings
To help celebrate Chris King Precision Components’ 40th anniversary, Santa Cruz Bicycles is offering a limited run of its 5010 CC—the company’s five-inch-travel, 27.5-inch-wheel trail bike—with special spec and finish. Only 40 will be made.

The rest of the build is based on Santa Cruz’s XX1 build: SRAM XX1 drivetrain, Guide brakes, RockShox Pike 130mm-travel fork and Reverb dropper post, Fox Float DPS shock, Race Face NEXT cranks, Easton ARC 24 rims, and WTB saddle.
Santa Cruz Hightower CC X01 27+
$6,799.99
Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon. Running either proven 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world. So the big question, 27.5+ or 29? 29 If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29” wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to the new Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands. 27.5+ When conditions get loose and the traction just ain’t there, you’ll want to reach for bigger tires. 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rise above the fray, rail the soft spots, and carry momentum where standard tires bog down. No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a “High/Low” setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height*. Hightower’s 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration. Meanwhile, 150mm of seat dropper, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details. 135mm of VPP travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of linkage arrangement and swingarm design we reserve for the heaviest hitters in our model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there. *Please note: 140mm fork comes standard on the 29” kits, and is exchanged for a 150mm version on the 27+ builds to keep the 67° head angle consistent.
Santa Cruz Highball 2.0 CC X01 Reserve 29
$5,999.99
Built around a 100mm travel fork, the Highball is a hardcore XC bootcamper that's designed to last. This sharp-handling hardtail has zero tolerance for waste, putting your power straight to the drivetrain. If you're looking for a race rig to last you season after season, the Highball is just the ticket. Sporting an aggressive head tube angle, the Highball handles quickly, yet feels stable. It climbs like nobody's business while its roomy cockpit gives you space to maneuver on descents and technical sections. The Highball is unapologetically fast, surprisingly fun, and every bit a Santa Cruz mountain bike.
Santa Cruz Hightower 1.0 CC 27.5+ XX1
$5,999.95 $7,799.99 23% Savings
An all new platform from Santa Cruz, the Hightower is a big, versatile, awesome all-mountain rig intended for all day fun. It is designed around versatility, switching between 27.5+ and 29" wheel sizes in a matter of moments. Finally, the bike of your dreams can be built to be whatever type of all-mountain bike you truly desire. Close in geometry to Santa Cruz's Bronson, the Hightower gets slacker geometry, a low bottom bracket and shorter chain stays to fit in well with modern big-travel Trail and AM bikes. With 135mm of Virtual Pivot Point travel, the Hightower is all the bike you'll need to conquer any trail. One frame for both wheel: You just swap out the wheels and fork and flip the “Toggle Chip” on the suspension linkage and you’ll be able to fit either wheel. Changing the fork and the Chip does affect the geo, allowing for the best possible position regardless of which wheel you use.
Santa Cruz 5010 CC X01
$5,899.95 $6,599.99 11% Savings
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon CC from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The X01 build features light and snappy components from SRAM, including a 1x Eagle drivetrain for the ultimate in mountain bike simplicity, and a Fox Float Performance Elite shock and Fox 34 Float Performance Elite fork enable confidence when ripping through tight, rocky singletrack. For the 5010 CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight by half a pound, and with the optioned ENVE carbon wheelset you're looking at 27.1 pounds of riotous mountain bike fun.
Santa Cruz Hightower CC X01
$5,799.95 - $5,899.95 $6,599.99 Up To 11% Savings
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Santa Cruz didn't stop with simple updates in frame design to up this big-wheeler's appeal, though. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 29er wheelset or change to 27.5+ for extra float and traction in sketchy conditions. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon CC X01 comes equipped with a RockShox Pike 29 RCT3 140mm fork, Monarch RT3 shock, and SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain for uncompromising performance no matter where you ride. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight by 230 grams.

Santa Cruz 5010 2.1 C S 27.5
$4,799.99

Santa Cruz Tallboy 3.0 C S 29
$4,799.99
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. As a 27+ bike it revels in the severe. In desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and find oases of grip where standard tires flounder. And when the monsoon comes, lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections like a Defender on diff-lock. In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy’s renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29 configuration will have you bagging on e-bikes at every turn. A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy’s playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and bring the Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range. A flip chip on the upper link, combined with either a 130mm fork (for 27+) or 120mm fork (for 29-inch), ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL. The carbon frames run the whole size spectrum, while the aluminum frame goes Small through XL. The versatile trail bike of choice for rapid riders like Greg Minnaar—the Tallboy is for those who don’t roll with the pack.

Santa Cruz Nomad 3.0 CC X01 AM
$4,499.95 $6,599.99 32% Savings
The new Nomad sends the all mountain category into Andean Mountain sized territory. Now in its third generation, the full carbon frame has been completely redesigned to stay ahead of enduro racing’s ever-more DH trajectory. An aggressive 65 degree head angle delivers V10 handling at Syndicate speeds. Santa Cruz has also added a V10-style upper link, increased VPP™ travel and improved small bump performance. The RockShox Monarch Plus Debonair rear shock helps you dial in your 165mm of rear wheel travel to the trail you are attacking. One the front, you will find a RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air fork with 160mm of travel. There isn't another fork better suited to the this bike and what it is designed for. The one-by only design also permits a neatly recessed and protected lower link, resulting in some seriously compact chainstays. Match that with an inch more reach in the cockpit and you’ve got the ideal set-up for tearing down the side of Chilean stratovolcanoes. Don't worry about running out of gears though. The SRAM X0-1 drivetrain provides every gear you will need to get up steep, technical climbs and give you the top end speed as you sprint down the hill. And as ever with carbon technology, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The internal cable routing is so trick it’s a shame it never sees the light of day. Thin carbon fiber tubes molded into the frame from entry to exit, ensure completely integrated hassle-free routing every time. With enduro racing pushing more and more into the forefront of gravity racing and riding, it is about time someone designed a bike specifically around the needs of an enduro racer. Welcome to the Nomad 3 Carbon.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC X01 XC
$4,499.95 $5,999.99 25% Savings
The Tallboy continues to tower over the competition when it comes to 29ers with attitude. Awarded “Bike of the Year” time after time, the balanced geometry and proprietary carbon lay-up creates a killer package that screams XC performance, and delivers trail shredding capabilities. 100mm of VPP™ travel and a finely-tuned shock rate creates an obscenely efficient pedaling platform.
Santa Cruz Stigmata 2.1 CC CX1
$4,399.99
The Stigmata is a cyclocross bike deserving of the Santa Cruz name. They do things a bit backwards at Santa Cruz. While most companies first introduced carbon fiber on their road bikes, they made mountain bikes from it to prove its strength and versatility as a material. Then they made a downhill bike. And now they've made a carbon Stigmata—a 'cross, gravel, just go ride bike. They developed the new Stigmata simply because people missed the old Stigmata. Santa Cruz felt there was a lot they could do with carbon that they were unable to do with the original aluminum model. At the same time, hydraulic disc brakes for road bikes were becoming a reality, meaning that riders wouldn’t have to put up with ancient braking technology to get our drop bar on. The new Stigmata is versatile. It’ll fit 41mm-wide tires with room for mud, but handles nicely with skinny road tires for base miles. It’s also home to Santa Cruz's first PressFit 30 bottom bracket. They did not make this decision lightly, but not only is PF30 capable of accommodating all road bike cranks, it allowed them to make the bike lighter while maintaining the strength and durability you expect from Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz Highball 29 CC X01
$4,299.95 $4,799.99 10% Savings
When it's time to blast through miles of singletrack, nothing beats the quick, lively feel of Santa Cruz's Highball hardtail. Santa Cruz has been at it for years with the Highball, and with modernized geometry this version rips better than ever. In keeping with today's preference for running a short stem and wide handlebar, Santa Cruz lengthened the front end to preserve an efficient pedaling position, and they trimmed the rear to increase agility. The result is a cross country trail slayer that's easy to lift over obstacles and whip through tight turns, ultimately making you a faster rider. Internal cable routing with hassle-free guides keeps the Carbon CC frame looking smart, and a slimmer seatpost offers a touch more compliance that you'll appreciate on epic rides. The Highball 29 CC X01 takes you to a new level of riding with SRAM's Eagle X01 drivetrain and Level TLM brakes. A RockShox SID RLC 100mm fork shaves weight and offers precise tuning capability for the ultimate in XC bump absorption.
Santa Cruz Hightower C S+
$4,139.95 $4,599.99 10% Savings
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the wagon-wheel paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. In the case of the S+ version, this means plus-size 27.5 x 2.8 tires for extra float and traction on sketchy terrain. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or change to 29ers for extra speed and precision. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon C S+ comes equipped with a RockShox Pike RC Solo Air 150mm fork and stop and go bits from SRAM that offer solid performance in a mid-level package. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
Santa Cruz Tallboy C S
$4,139.95 $4,599.99 10% Savings
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle and 120mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 29er wheelset or 27.5+ thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy C S, Santa Cruz ups the build with SRAM Level TL brakes and GX 1x11 shifting bits, and a Fox 34 Float Performance fork and Float Performance rear shock. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.

Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 C S
$3,999.95 $4,599.99 13% Savings
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard richens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A RockShox Pike RC Solo Air fork and Monarch RT shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.

Santa Cruz 5010 2.1 C R 27.5
$3,899.99
A laser sharp, agile backcountry trail whip that corners on rails and loves to pop and jib, the 5010 is a bike handler's dream. As at home on a backcountry mission with Steve Peat as it is hopping fences with Danny MacAskill, the 130mm-travel 5010 sports a short chainstay length and low BB height for a uniquely playful character with an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 67-degree head tube angle, and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes. Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know.
