Santa Cruz Bronson Aluminum R+
$3,499.00
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.

Santa Cruz Nomad Aluminum R
$3,599.00
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 Aluminum R is the gateway into all-mountain capability. A RockShox Yari fork followed by a Super Deluxe R shock work together to give you predictable control in big terrain. Wide-range gearing is supplied by SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain and is backed up by Guide RE brakes and 200mm rotors for dependable stopping power on any trail, and tubeless-ready WTB/SRAM wheelset and Maxxis Minion tires supply the grip to rip. A Race Face cockpit and WTB Silverado Race saddle wrap up this stellar package.
Santa Cruz Nomad R Aluminum
$3,599.00
As the sport of enduro mountain biking grows, so does the need for a bike that can handle evolving course designs. Nomad takes this idea to the limit, resulting in a surprisingly rideable bike that's built to rip on gravity-oriented tracks. 170mm of Santa Cruz VPP suspension provides a linear shock rate that mimics the feel of longer-travel DH bikes, and the RockShox Super Deluxe Air R rear shock delivers ample control, from big-air jump lines to technical, rocky descents. 27.5-inch WTB ST i25 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber are built around Boost hub spacing for increased torsional strength, and the RockShox Yari RC fork smooths brake-bumped berms and sketchy landings to keep you focused on the line ahead. Smart details show that Santa Cruz knows a thing or two about gravity-fueled mountain biking, like a bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, double-sealed collet axle pivots, a recessed lower link, and an integrated shock fender to keep your suspension clean. The Nomad Aluminum R build is finished with a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain, Guide R hydraulic disc brakes paired with 200mm rotors, and a Race Face Aeffect dropper post to ensure maximum confidence on absolutely everything you ride.

Santa Cruz Hightower C R
$4,299.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. While the Hightower R is on the more affordable side of the available Carbon C frame build kits, it's no slouch when it comes to satisfying your trail riding needs. You get a stiff RockShox Yari RC fork paired with a Fox Float Performance DPS shock for excellent shock absorption, and SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain shifts through the massive 12-speed gear range with ease. SRAM Guide R brakes and WTB ST i29 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires put confidence in your fingertips on sketchy descents, while the Race Face Ride stem and Aeffect R bar with 35mm clamp give you the stiffness and leverage you want for precise maneuvers at speed.
Santa Cruz Blur Carbon C S
$4,399.00 - $5,599.00

No matter how demanding your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. At just 2060g this is Santa Cruz's lightest ever 100mm full suspension frame. The ultra-efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got rocket-like acceleration on demand. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to Santa Cruz's World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. The Blur Carbon C S build bumps up the performance factor with SRAM's toothy GX Eagle drivetrain, Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, and a Fox 32 Performance Step Cast fork and Float Performance DPS shock. You get to choose which wheelset suits your style of riding best: either Race Face AR rims paired to DT 350 hubs or Santa Cruz's own Reserve Carbon. Both are wrapped in Maxxis Aspen tires for serious speed on XC tracks. A Race Face Aeffect bar and stem combo put the finishing touch on responsive control. Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to take those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon.

Smart details show that Santa Cruz knows a thing or two about gravity-fueled mountain biking, like a bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, double-sealed collet axle pivots, a recessed lower link, and an integrated shock fender to keep your suspension clean. The Nomad Carbon C R build is finished with a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain, Guide R hydraulic disc brakes paired with 200mm rotors, and a Race Face Aeffect dropper post to ensure maximum confidence on absolutely everything you ride

'Cross it, grind it, pedal it up a mountain pass — Stigmata's lightweight frame puts proven Santa Cruz carbon technology at the forefront, while modern design features increase performance and versatility across all disciplines. Improvements like front and rear thru axles, full-carbon dropouts and disc caliper mounts, and a PF30 bottom bracket all contribute to Stigmata's solid, responsive feel. Internal cable and hose routing and an integrated headset maintain a clean look along with extra protection from the elements, and clearance for up to 41mm-wide tires gives you the go-ahead to get dirty on unmaintained roads and singletrack trails. The Stigmata Carbon CC Ultegra delivers shifting precision through Shimano's 2x11 drivetrain and confident braking performance thanks to Ultegra hydraulic power. And tubeless-ready DT XR 361 wheels wrapped in Maxxis Rambler 700x40c tires provide the fast-rolling traction you need, whether your pursuits lead you through the twists and turns of cyclocross or never-ending forest roads.
