More travel than a white van

Big mountain riding is a nomadic existence. Meeting friends in farflung car parks. Pinpointing trails you're not sure are even rideable. Sending the ones you know are. Shiny new bling gets battered, shattered and bruised. That’s life. That’s how it should be. That's why the Nomad exists.

Probably the most abused bike in our line up, every Nomad has a story to tell. But each Nomad we've made keeps coming back for more. It's not Stockholm Syndrome, it's called sealed bearings in all pivots, a lower link grease port, shuttle guards and free bearing replacements. Why scrap a frame when a simple bearing service can make one last a lifetime? That's our stance on sustainability at least, and it's why our carbon fiber doesn’t just mean lighter, it means tough as hell backed up by a lifetime warranty and crash replacement support.

There’s no time for puzzling when on a road trip either. That's why we chose 27.5 wheels as the go-to for the widest variety of riding styles and rider sizes. When peeling your bike out of the van at a new spot your only question should be “Is this a full face or a half lid kinda ride?” The 64-degree head angle and 77-degree seat angle puts you in the sweet spot when winching up to the top of a big drop in. Meanwhile proportional chainstay lengths mean handling is never compromised, regardless of frame size.

And when we say big travel, we're not talking about your Transit's odometer. We're talking 170mm of 38mm diameter fork and 170mm of VPP rear suspension compatible with both coil and air shocks. The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock, plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.

So van-lifers unite. The Nomad is the kind of bike you need never worry about all summer long. Sorry we can't say the same for the locked public washrooms and parking tickets.

  • Be your own uplift for all-day sessioning. The Bullit adds a powerful motor with the same descent eating travel.
  • Hop onto 29er wheels with the Megatower bgi wheels, big travel, big fun.

170mm travel

When we say big travel, we're not talking about your Transit's odometer. We're talking 170mm of 38mm diameter fork and 170mm of VPP rear suspension compatible with both coil and air shocks.

Proportional chainstay lengths

The Nomad's chainstay length is matched to the frame size so every rider, no matter their height, gets the same balanced geometry.

27.5 wheels

There’s no time for puzzling when on a road trip either. That's why we chose 27.5 wheels as the go-to for the widest variety of riding styles and rider sizes.

Built to take a beating, built to keep ripping

A lifetime warranty, industry-leading Rider Support, and the toughest carbon frames (and rims) out there should have you covered. But we also design them to be easy to work on and provide the parts and information so you can keep your bike going for longer.

FAQS

Can I mount a chainguide to my bike?

Yes, this bike is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs for easy chainguide mounting. Most chainguides on the market that are made for this standard should work.

Can I mullet the Nomad?

We don't recommend this. The Nomad is designed around a 170mm 27.5 fork. A larger diamter front wheel and longer (axle-to-crown) fork would significantly change the geometry we worked hard on. It would certainly slacken the headangle but also raise the BB height, shorten the reach and slacken the seat tube angle, which would negatively affect the handling of the bike. If you were deadset on doing it you'd be best off using a 150mm-travel 29" fork, but that would mean unbalanced suspension feel.

Can I use a triple clamp fork?

No, the headtube of the Nomad is engineered to withstand the additional forces of a long travel fork fork, however the sides of the toptube and downtube are not reinforced to withstand the kinds of side impacts that might occur in a crash when the upper stanchions of a dual crown fork are thumped into the frame. Any damage from an incident like that would not be covered under warranty but instead treated as a crash replacement.

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 suspension will also have a "poppier" and more playful ride, as the air shock will try to get you out of the deep part of travel.

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 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 kind of headset does this bike use?

This bike uses integrated headset cups. The upper up is 41mm and the lower cup is 52mm. The SHIS name is IS 41/28.6 IS 52/40.

What kind of rear brake mount does it use?

This bike uses a 180mm post mount. You cannot run a smaller rotor than that. If using 180mm rotor, your caliper will bolt straight to the mount. For 200 or 203 rotors you will need a 20mm or 23mm Post Mount adapter

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. We recommend a 37-38mm offset fork on this model.

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.

Where can I find additional technical information for my bike?

Currently all technical info is located either on the bike archive or under tech support. Both can provide helpful information for puzzling with your bike, torque specs, and exploded diagrams.
