Nomad Carbon CC XX1 Reserve RCT Air Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
More heavy metal than classical in composition, the fourth-gen Nomad loves nothing more than dropping into raucous downhills, sending A-line jumps, and ripping the steepest lines on the mountain. The fourth-gen Nomad gets a rowdy redesign with a V10-inspired chassis mated to an elongated wheelbase and super-slack geometry that screams of aggression. You'll find thoughtful details protecting the Nomad's sensitive regions--from a cleanly integrated shuttle guard to the mud-blocking shock fender and aluminum ear cover that protects the swingarm from dropped chains. While the previous generation Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro racing, the newest version is less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity/freeride rig that you can pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds. Think of it as a freeride bike for riders seeking one that's versatile enough to destroy lift-accessed downhills and park laps, then pedal along backcountry epics the next day. The 65-degree head tube angle (high setting) and longer reach keep things calm and comfortable on wicked descents, yet the steeper 75-degree seat tube angle puts you in an optimal pedaling position, so you're never struggling to shift your weight forward on climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm gives you the ability to fine-tune its geometry to your exact riding preferences and local terrain. Keep it in the stock high setting for a more efficient pedaling platform or switch it to the low setting for an even slacker geometry (64. 6 degrees) that's purely focused on gravity disciplines. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to push the bike to the absolute limit on downhills or retain more balance for earning your turns across imposing alpine terrain. Delving into the revised shock placement, the engineers at Santa Cruz sought to achieve a more linear shock rate with the fourth-gen Nomad, much like you'd find with the V10. The VPP suspension is driven by a lower-link mount...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
