Introducing The New Nomad1st APR 2014

Santa Cruz Nomad 27.5

Santa Cruz Nomad 27.5

Completely Redesigned

The new Nomad sends the all mountain category into Andean Mountain sized territory. Now in its third generation, the full carbon frame has been completely redesigned to stay ahead of enduro racing’s ever-more DH trajectory.

Aggressive Geometry

An aggressive 65 degree head angle delivers V10 handling at Syndicate speeds. We've also added a V10-style upper link, increased VPP travel to 165mm and improved small bump performance.

Recessed Link

The one-by only design also permits a neatly recessed and protected lower link, resulting in some seriously compact chain stays.

Longer Reach

With an inch more reach in the cockpit, the Nomad's got the ideal geometry for tearing down the side of Chilean stratovolcanoes!

Internal Routing

And as ever with carbon technology, it's what's on the inside that counts. The internal cable routing is so trick it's a shame it never sees the light of day. Thin carbon fibre tubes molded into the frame from entry to exit, ensuring completely integrated hassle-free routing every time.

VPP Efficiency

The ground-up redesign incorporates a steeper seat tube angle, creating an efficient pedaling position for total liaison stage domination. Read more about VPP here.

Custom Colours

Available now in stealth black or aqua/magenta colors with coordinated fork and wheel decals, the new Nomad shows just how rad things can get with some single-ring-minded focus.
