Santa Cruz 2013 SOLO Aluminum

Tires and frame exp anything full bike shot start with This one.

With Bronson landing amidst more hype than a free-falling Austrian, you’d be forgiven for thinking we’d burnt up on big launches for the year. But the show has just begun. Solo pushes further into the realms of 27.5″ possibilities. Developed using what we learned from Bronson, it takes the design platform in a different direction. The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give Solo its snappy, nimble, ride.

A 68 degree head angle adds climbing agility into the equation, whilst a 5lb carbon frame weight define Solo as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.

Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, Solo goes where no bike has gone before.

Santa Cruz 2013 Nomad Aluminum

Santa Cruz 2013 Nomad Aluminum

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.
