Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon – SPX AM Build 2012

This Santa Cruz Nomad model has nearly perfect user reviews, because it can take a beating as well as being very fun to ride. The Santa Cruz Nomad carbon frame is very light but is one of the toughest frames out of all of Santa Cruz’s many bike models. This combination is possible due to a manufacture that we’ve seen before on other Santa Cruz lines, creating all of the front triangle in a single piece. The main features of this Santa Cruz Nomad model include the fact that it has an impressively strong frame and Rock Shox Lyrik RC2 DH fork. Thanks to the Shimano Deore XT drivetrain, this toughness is combined with perfect balance and a very lightweight DT Swiss wheelset. Do not be fooled by this bike’s sleek design and light weight! This Santa Cruz Nomad model can take quite a beating.

The Santa Cruz Nomad line is an all-mountain design that is best suited for a freeride approach. Even though this bike weighs a bit over thirty pounds, you can be sure that it can climb anything. Of course, when going uphill the guys on the hardtails will have a better time, but they better get out of the way when the ride goes downhill! An efficient suspension design featuring a Counter-rotating Virtual Pivot Point and short suspension links, easy maintenance thanks to sealed pivots and grease ports, and the perfect balance between durability and balance thanks to the Shimano Deore LX/XT drivetrain mean that this bike can handle nearly all conditions. This Santa Cruz Nomad model can take punishment and is for the aggressive, powerful rider.

An overview of Santa Cruz Nomad reviews reveals that this line has nearly perfect scores. While some users have complained of a bit of pedal wobble, it seems that the main complaint is that they cannot ride their Santa Cruz Nomad enough!
