Pinkbike Awards: Trail / All-Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees

Santa Cruz Nomad Nominated For 

Pinkbike All-Mountain Bike of the Year

Santa Cruz drew from everything they'd learned over the past decade regarding geometry and suspension design in order to create the latest version of the Nomad, a bike with 165mm of travel that can tame the most technical trails on the planet while still possessing efficient pedaling and a light fighting weight, traits that help take the sting out of those long grueling climbs. To go along with its spot-on geometry, the Nomad's features read like a bike nerd's wish-list: a full carbon frame, complete with internal cable routing, a revised VPP suspension layout that tucks the lower link up into the frame and out of harm's way, space for a water bottle inside the front triangle, and on top of all that there's even a threaded bottom bracket shell. Santa Cruz absolutely nailed it with the Nomad, creating a bike that combines beauty and brawn into one outstanding ride
