The Stigmata is a cyclocross bike deserving of the Santa Cruz name.
They do things a bit backwards there at Santa Cruz. While most companies first introduced carbon fiber on their road bikes, Santa Cruz 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 ride your damn bike' bike.
They started the development of the new Stigmata a couple years ago, because they missed the old Stigmata, and felt that there was a lot they could do with carbon that they were unable to do with aluminum. At the same time, hydraulic disc brakes for road bikes were becoming a reality, meaning that Santa Cruz 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 their first PressFit 30 bottom bracket. They didn’t 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.
