BIG MOUNTAIN RIDING IS A NOMADIC EXPERIENCE
Probably the most abused bike in the Santa Cruz line up, every Nomad has a story to tell. But each Nomad keeps coming back for more. It's not Stockholm Syndrome, it's called sealed bearings in all pivots, a lower link grease port, shuttle guards, and free bearing replacements.

NEW SHOCK CONFIGURATION
And when we say big travel, we're not talking about your Transit's odometer. We're talking 170mm of 38mm diameter fork and 170mm of VPP rear suspension compatible with both coil and air shocks. The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock, plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.
There’s no time for puzzling when on a road trip either. That's why we chose 27.5 wheels as the go-to for the widest variety of riding styles and rider sizes. When peeling your bike out of the van at a new spot your only question should be “Is this a full face or a half lid kinda ride?” 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 chainstay lengths mean handling is never compromised, regardless of frame size.
BIG MOUNTAIN RIDING
To handle all this newfound capability, the geometry of the Santa Cruz Nomad was adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. At the same time, the Santa Cruz Nomad is still a trail bike. It pedals well and tackles valley-to-valley alpine runs and all-day missions without skipping a beat—a fact helped by its pedal-friendly seat tube angle and standard 170mm dropper post fit.
