Sometimes to really achieve next level results, you have to start from the ground up and totally change the way you look at something.
That’s the method that bicycle manufacturer Santa Cruz took with their new 2014 Nomad, and the benefits of taking this approach are obvious the minute you look at one of these high quality bikes. As with any bike, the re-designing process starts with the frame, and the all carbon Nomad frame is a testament to Santa Cruz’s dedication to their bikes and their riders.
Another innovative aspect of the 2014 Santa Cruz Nomad is the tire sizing. The 27.5” wheels give a nice balance between 26” and 29”, meaning that you still get all the agility and handling of a smaller wheel while sacrificing none of the balance and stability of a larger one. Compatible with tires up to 2.5”, the 2014 Nomad keeps you connected to the trail below you in the most efficient way possible. And when the road gets a little bumpy, as it inevitably will, 165mm VPP suspension is there to cushion your ride, allowing you to power over any uneven surface that stands in your way.
Pinkbike.com raves that the new 2014 Nomad “has been completely redesigned to stay ahead of enduro racing’s ever more DH-trajectory”. “Bikerumor.com simply says “It’s hard not to drool”. But why take their word for it. Get on a new 2014 Santa Cruz Nomad today and test out the future of mountain biking. Feel the difference in the 27.5” wheels. Experience the added comfort of a full extra inch of reach. And test the limits of the agile yet durable all-carbon frame, dropouts, and disc mounts. You won’t regret it.
