Expirience with the Santa Cruz Nomad GX AXS / Coil / Carbon C / MX

Santa Cruz Nomad GX AXS / Coil / Carbon C / MX Review Same travel on the fork, same rear end, same look. At first glance, the differences between Santa Cruz Megatower and Nomad are hard to spot. Who looks closer notices that the Nomad rolls on a mullet setup with a small 27.5 inch rear wheel. With its geometry, the Santa Cruz Enduro is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. On climbs, the Nomad GX AXS MX lets you sweat. Other bikes 7999 Euro climb better. With a total weight of 16,18 kg, the Nomad GX AXS MX is one of the heavier Enduro that you get for under under 8000 Euro. Trail lovers should nevertheless be convinced by this argument: in the downhill, the coherent geometry ensures you´ll have a wide smile in your face. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong. Pay attention when selecting your size: the Santa Cruz Fully sizing runs small.
