nomad Enduro

V10 handling at Syndicate speeds.

The Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope on how lawless a single-crown bike can get while still remaining a capable daily driver.

The latest iteration nudged the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and we surprised ourselves at just how well-rounded it turned out.

The fourth generation design saw a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. The shock rate is a short-travel version of the V10—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, supportive mid-stroke, and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike.

To handle all this newfound capability, the geometry was adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. At the same time, the Nomad’s still a trail bike. It pedals well and tackles valley-to-valley alpine runs and all-day missions without skipping a beat—a fact helped by its pedal-friendly seat tube angle and standard 170mm dropper post fit.

FAQS

What Hope Headset do I need?

The code for a Hope Headset is : Hope 7 J

The geometry chart shows two settings- how do I adjust that?

There's a "flip chip" on the lower link where the shock mounts.  Just remove the lower shock bolt and flip the chips to the setting you desire

What kind of rear brake mount does it use?

The Nomad 4 uses a 180mm post mount.  You cannot run a smaller rotor than that.  The Lyrik and Yari that we spec are also 180mm post mount.

What size fork is the Nomad designed for?

We designed it around a 170mm fork, and this will be ideal for the balance of the bike.  A 180mm fork would work as well, if you're looking for an even more gravity-oriented bike.

I see you offer some models with a choice of coil shock or air shock- which should I get?

There is a difference in feel between the two, but neither is better than the other- just different.  The air shock is more progressive than the coil, which allows for a slightly softer setup without worrying about bottoming-out.  This will generally offer a smoother ride, but one that can still be ridden very aggressively and not struggle.  
The coil has a slightly more linear feel/ less bottom-out resistance, which encourages a firmer overall setup.  This offers the maximum mid-stroke support for berms/park riding/ pushing into turns.  If you like a more responsive/firmer feel, you will probably prefer the coil.  If you set the air shock up to offer a similar feel in the mid-stroke, you may struggle to achieve full travel.  These aren't huge differences, but they are enough that we wanted to offer both.  Obviously, the air shock offers the advantages of being lighter and easier to tune, so this will be the right choice for the majority of riders.   

What size seatpost does the Nomad use?

31.6mm.  We spec/recommend the Reverb without the Connectamajig to maximize the amount of seatpost insertion available.
