    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz Nomad X0 AXS

    Santa Cruz Nomad X0 AXS 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. Santa Cruz is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the Santa Cruz Fully. If you want to hunt Strava-KOMs uphill, the Santa Cruz is probably not the right bike for you. Finally, here is another killer argument: in price range on very demanding single trails, the Santa Cruz Nomad X0 AXS is one of the best models in the on very demanding single trails category. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong. Caution when selecting the size: the Carbon frame sizing runs small.
