Santa Cruz Nomad Mk4
Thursday 1 June 2017, Filed in: General
Another Day and another big bike announcement! The replacement for the Mk3 Santa Cruz nomad has been announced. A revised slacker longer and bigger travel bike, the New Nomad blurs the line between downhill bikes and trail bikes!
The Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. With each iteration we nudge the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and each time we surprise ourselves at just how completely rideable the end result remains.
The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across to one of our trail bikes.
The shock rate is now almost completely linearâ€”which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going we've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference.
