Ripping through berms, blasting off lips, and charging through chunder—with Santa Cruz's Nomad C, you're one step ahead of the enduro game. This is a "charge it first, ask questions later" sort of beast. It's C-carbon frame is light, responsive and ready to take a beating, while the 165mm VPP suspension takes it all in stride. The Nomad C is only compatible with one-by drivetrains so Santa Cruz could make the chainstays as short as possible. The frame is long across the top to accommodate a short stem and wide bars, and the angles are optimized to make a downhill monster that pedals pretty nicely, too. All this great geo delivers a ride that corners quick, slashes corners with ease, and is ready for the most brutal enduro stages you can imagine. The Nomad C is built trail ready with a RockShox Pike RC, SLX brakes, Reverb Stealth dropper post, and SRAM's venerable X1 drivetrain.
