Nomad Carbon CC XX1 RCT Air Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Nomad has a been a staple in Santa Cruz's lineup for over a decade, serving as their most aggressive single-crown bike, allowing riders to conquer technical gravity trails that may require some pedaling to access. The bike recently saw some updates that push it further into the downhill spectrum without losing the pedaling efficiency that keeps it suitable as a one-bike quiver. The newest iteration has a lower-link driven suspension design borrowed from the V10, longer and slacker geometry that is adjustable, and protective elements to help prevent frame damage. The resulting Nomad Carbon CC XX1 RCT Air Complete Mountain Bike is a long-travel sled that excels on everything from big backcountry rides and enduro racing, to hot laps at the bike park and epic freeride missions. The suspension platform is 6. 7in of lower-link-driven VPP travel. The lower-link design is inspired by Santa Cruz's V10 downhill bike and gives their engineers freedom to make the suspension curve more linear, for smoother overall progression. The initial stroke is more sensitive, leveling small bumps and braking chatter to keep your tires glued to the ground at speed. A more supportive mid-stroke keeps you in the sweet spot of the travel through successive hits from rock gardens or gnarled root lattices. It also gives you a platform to push off when pumping rollers and transitions. When drops, accidental hucks-to-flat, or steep fall-line chutes push you deep into the travel, the end-stroke mimics a downhill bike for a bottomless feel, taking the harshness out of bigger hits. The Nomad is still a trail bike though, albeit on the fringe of the category, so Santa Cruz made sure the VPP platform pedals efficiently enough for long transfer stages and big backcountry epics. The Nomad's capable suspension is complemented by refined geometry that pushes it further into downhill bike territory. A slacker head tube angle, longer reach, and longer wheelbase mean this bike loves descents and high-...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
