With a reputation built on aggressively fast descents, catching air, and picking apart technical lines, then climbing back up to do it all again, the latest version of the Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon S Reserve Complete Mountain Bike has an adapted travel and geometry configured to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. This redesigned platform takes inspiration from the downhill-crushing V10, yet like all previous Nomads, it retains the ability to pedal back up for one last heart-pumping descent. Santa Cruz built upon the idea that the Nomad should be less of a dedicated race bike and more of a gravity rig that you can actually pedal uphill without struggling like other long-travel sleds. Think of it as a freeride bike for riders seeking one that's versatile enough to lap the resort park and shuttle downhill laps, then pedal along backcountry epics the very next day. The 65-degree head tube angle (in high setting) and longer reach keep things calm and comfortable on wicked descents, yet the steeper 74. 5-degree seat tube angle puts you in an optimal pedaling position without struggling to shift your weight forward on steep climbs. The flip-chip integrated into the swingarm provides the ability to fine-tune its geometry to your exact riding preferences and local terrain. Keep it in the high setting for a more efficient pedaling platform on rides with a mix of blistering descents and steep climbs. Conversely, you can switch it to the low setting for an even slacker geometry (head tube of 64. 6 degrees) that's purely aimed on downhill laps at the resort and shuttle runs up the pass where climbing isn't an issue. Ultimately, its adjustable geometry lends the ability to push the bike to the absolute limit on lift-accessed days or retain more balance for earning your turns across large and imposing alpine terrain. Moving to the revised shock placement, the engineers at Santa Cruz sought to achieve a more linear shock rate with the fourth-gen N...
