Nomad Carbon CC Air X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Perhaps no bike carries the Santa Cruz Bicycles standard as well as the Nomad, combining a climb-friendly Eagle drivetrain, sturdy carbon construction, and all the party bike qualities in a package that's eager to meet gravity face-to-face. With its 7-inches of front and rear travel, jumps, shuttle laps, and lift passes are the Nomad's preferred business, and since it retains all the pedal-ability of Santa Cruz's VPP suspension, it's no slouch when your day involves big climbs and all-day pedal-fests in the backcountry. Equipped with an XO1 Eagle build kit and Santa Cruz's top-level Carbon CC frame, this bike shaves considerable weight off the lesser Nomad builds while providing a top-notch ride quality and shred-worthy durability. The previous Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro domination, but the newest generation is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity rig that you can actually pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds. Think of it as a freeride bike for riders who want to lap the resort park and shuttle downhill laps, then pedal along backcountry epics the very next day. The 65-degree head tube angle (in high setting) and longer reach keep things calm and comfortable while partying hard, but the steeper 75-degree seat tube angle puts you in an optimal pedaling position without struggling to shift your weight forward on steep climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm provides the ability to fine-tune its geometry to your exact riding preferences and local terrain. Keep it in the high setting for a more efficient pedaling platform on rides with a mix of blistering descents and steep climbs. Conversely, you can switch it to the low setting for an even slacker geometry (head tube of 64. 6 degrees) that's purely aimed on downhill laps at the resort and shuttle runs up the pass where climbing isn't an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to push the bike to the absolute limit on lift-accessed days...

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.
