Product Description

Nomad Carbon C R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles

Ride it hard, put it away dirty, repeat the next day. That's the MO with the new 2021 Nomad. This long-travel bruiser has a reputation for consistently pushing the envelope of big mountain riding, all while remaining a capable daily driver for those times when you aren't out there riding full gas. Gaps, shuttle laps, and lift passes are the Nomad's preferred business, but since it retains all the pedal-ability of Santa Cruz's VPP suspension, it's no slouch when you're racking up miles on a big loop in the backcountry. Considering that the recipe for the Nomad V4 was already pretty close to perfect, we're not surprised that Santa Cruz opted to give this 5th generation bike a host of sensible updates instead of a complete overhaul. Like its predecessor, the Nomad V5 rolls on 27. 5-inch wheels and boasts 170mm of trail-taming VPP travel. Though the two frames look very similar, the V5 now uses a twin upright swingarm to bolster frame stiffness and durability, and all build kits come with burly 38mm forks for taking on the most technical terrain on the mountain. The bike also sees improved suspension kinematics for a better overall feel on the trail, and it's now compatible with SRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger to make finding replacement hangers a breeze. Most of the changes lie in the bike's geometry, the most significant being the move to a 77. 5-degree seat tube angle--a near 4-degree increase over the previous Nomad. This gives the bike a more upright pedaling position that makes steep climbs more manageable and provides increased comfort for long-mileage days. Naturally, the bike gets a bit slacker too, moving from a 65-degree head tube to 63. 7 (in the low position), with longer reach figures to give you that extra edge when you're sending big lines in unfamiliar terrain. We're also pleased to see size-specific chainstay lengths, with the chainstays growing by about 5mm as you go up in size. This means that riders of any height get the same balanced geomet...
