We try to avoid category over-analysis and coming up with nifty acronyms. Instead, we build bikes for the needs of the riders we know. And we know a whole lot of people who go on long hard rides to find very burly terrain. That’s the reason for the Nomad. The 160mm of travel, stout aluminum frame with 1.5″ headtube, ISCG05 chainguide mount and 67 degree head angle could lead one to think the Nomad’s a scaled down downhill bike. Meanwhile, the refined and flattened VPP suspension curve makes the Nomad pedaling performance light and responsive. Simply put, the Nomad defies easy categorization. On the one hand it’s a downhill sparring partner, and on the other hand an everyday, everywhere, every trail kind of bike.
Santa Cruz Bikes offers a number of excellent kit and fork options for the Nomad. Please call us at 604-987-2168 and a member of the Steed Cycles Sales Team will be happy to walk you through all of the options and recommend the right bike for your intended use.
