Nomad Carbon S Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
With 170mm inches of plush VPP suspension inspired by Santa Cruz's V10 downhill bike, the Nomad Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike makes quick work of tricky root sections and steep drops, and won't shy away from the gnarliest trails you can find. With more travel and slacker angles than the Bronson, this bike stays better composed at high speeds and does a fantastic job holding its line when things get dicey. While it might not be quite as efficient on the climbs, it won't be far behind either, tackling ascents with a hunger that defies its big-travel, slacked out geometry thanks to the efficiency of the VPP suspension platform and a seat tube angle that puts you in a comfortable seated climbing position. Changes for the 2020 model year include some sweet new colors, and a switch to Maxxis Assegai tires for improved grip on virtually any trail surface. Otherwise, this workhorse "S" build kit remains pretty much the same with a wide range GX-Eagle drivetrain, powerful Code R brakes, and a trusty Fox 36 Performance fork up front paired with a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ rear shock out back. Although the previous generation Nomad was aimed squarely at enduro domination, 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 seeking one that's versatile enough 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 on wicked descents, yet 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 pedal...

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.
