V10 handling at Syndicate speeds.
The legend of all-mountain trail bikes. The Nomad's reputation is built on its capabilities and Santa Cruz’s ability to keep improving one of the best AM bikes of all time.
The fourth-generation design now runs the lower-link VPP mounted shock configuration. The shock rate is a short-travel version of the V10 Downhill bike, which means amazing small bump sensitivity, supportive mid-stroke, and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. The new Nomad C is longer and lower-slung to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. At the same time, the Nomad’s still a trail bike, so 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.
