Stigmata Carbon CC Cyclocross Frameset - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz does things a bit differently than most cycling companies, especially when you consider the Northern California company spent the better part of the last decade refining their carbon fiber construction on mountain bikes before bringing this insanely stiff and durable material to the Stigmata Carbon CC Cyclocross Frameset. This means the Stigmata benefits immensely from all the research and design poured into Santa Cruz's mountain bikes, ranging from the earliest carbon Tallboy and Blur XC, all the way to their newest models, such as the iconic Hightower and 5010. Translated to cyclocross racing and adventurous gravel grinds, you'll find the Stigmata Carbon CC is lightweight without sacrificing one ounce of strength or stiffness you've come to love from Santa Cruz mountain bikes. For 2018, the Stigmata is only available in Santa Cruz's highest level Carbon CC, which means it's extremely lightweight without forgoing the incredible power transfer of carbon fiber. Santa Cruz achieves a lower frame weight by utilizing a lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon in key areas to reduce weight without sacrificing its structural integrity or stiffness. This high-end carbon construction extends to the Stigmata's fork, which maintains stiff tracking for a precise handling bike without a noodly front end when you're riding over bumpy gravel and rutted-out courses. Modern geometry places the Stigmata Carbon CC in solid contention with the current crop of high-end 'cross bikes dominating the market. The 72-degree head tube angle, 73. 5-degree seat tube angle (based on 56-centimeter frame), and 69-millimeter bottom bracket drop fall neatly between European 'cross high and road-racing low, making it a great contender for American-style cyclocross. And even with its racy geometry cues, the Stigmata's geometry broadens its versatility beyond the cyclocross race course. In fact, it's just as confident and composed grinding down gravel roads and exploring light-duty ...
