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

Santa Cruz Nomad GX AXS / Coil / RSV / 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. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. The combination of high stack and short top tube makes the riding position pleasantly comfortable. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. When viewing the 16,15 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Enduros in this price range. For trail lovers, one point dominates: the Enduro von Santa Cruz scores in the decent with an extremely good geometry, a high-quality suspension and grippy tires. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs small.
