Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope on how lawless a single-crown bike can get while still remaining a capable daily driver. The latest iteration nudged the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and Santa Cruz surprised themselves at just how well-rounded it turned out. The fourth generation design saw a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. The shock rate is a short-travel version of the V10 — which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, supportive mid-stroke, and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To handle all this newfound capability, the geometry was adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. At the same time, the Nomad’s still a trail bike. 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. The Nomad Carbon C S brings big-mountain riding to you with a very capable set of components. A Fox 36 Performance fork followed by a RockShox Super Deluxe R shock work together to give you predictable control in big terrain. Wide-range gearing is supplied by SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and is backed up by Code R brakes and 200mm rotors for pinpoint control on steep descents, and a tubeless-ready Race Face AR/DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis Minion tires supply the grip to rip. For even better acceleration and response upgrade to the Santa Cruz Reserve 30 Carbon wheelset and experience a new level of athleticism while riding. A Race Face cockpit and RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost topped with a WTB Silverado Pro saddle finish the package, putting DH prowess in a lighter package for a rowdy good time.

Since the day it was born the Bronson has had the biggest personality in Santa Cruz's range of bikes. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point however twisted you get. There’s plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. Santa Cruz offers build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus using 2.6 tires. It feels like sorta-big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires. The Bronson Carbon C S+ sports a great all-around build, featuring SRAM's quick-shifting GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Code R four-piston hydraulic disc brakes paired to 200mm front and 180mm rear rotors, and a Race Face bar and stem combo. A tubeless-ready Race Face wheelset wrapped in 2.6-inch Maxxis Minion tires provide extra bite on loose terrain, and the Fox 36 fork and RockShox Super Deluxe shock complement the VPP suspension design, giving you off-the-top response with the capability for big airs when you're ready. For even better response and acceleration, choose the optional Santa Cruz Reserve 37 Carbon wheelset and feel your trail bike ascend to a new level of performance.
