Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon S Kit

Built for the biggest races.

When our racers travel to big mountains like the Chilean Andes for the Andes-Pacifico, they bring their Nomads. One look at the terrain tells you why – it’s rough, steep and more worthy of being a World Cup DH course than an enduro stage. Under these circumstances, the Nomad’s aggressive 65-degree head angle delivers V10 handling at Syndicate speeds. 165mm of VPP™ travel is delivered via a V10-style upper link and neatly recessed lower link design that's been extended to the Bronson and 5010.

The Nomad is uncompromising in its purpose, and as such has been designed specifically around one-by drivetrains only. One-by offers a wide range of options for just about any kind of riding, and the design permits some seriously compact chainstays. On the front end of the bike, the rangy cockpit and relatively steep seat tube angle make for a surprisingly efficient pedaling position for such a capable descender. Internal cable routing comes courtesy of thin carbon fiber tubes molded into the frame from entry to exit, ensuring completely integrated, hassle-free routing every time.

This C-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as our CC-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams more, due to the use of some less-expensive carbon fiber. Using this material doesn't impact the performance of the bike at all, but we have to use a bit more of it to make the bike to our exacting specifications, which results in the 280g weight gain.
