With features like an aggressive 65 degree head angle and 165mm of VPP™ travel delivered via a V10 style upper link and a neatly recessed lower link design, the Nomad has been updated to stay one step ahead of enduro racing’s ever more DH trajectory.
Don't let its downhill-oriented features deter you though, the Nomad sticks to its roots as an all-around mountain traveler and climbs surprisingly well, making it ideal for enduro's uphill pursuits too.
The arrival of 27.5” wheels marks a sea change in the V10’s evolution.
In development with the Syndicate since early 2013, Santa Cruz wrung full potential out of the new wheel standard before unveiling it at the races. The restraint paid off, and the new V10 hoovered up a 2014 World Cup title and a World Champs medal within weeks of being released.
Designed using what Santa Cruz had learned from the Bronson, the Santa Cruz 5010 is an all-mountain machine thanks to its 27.5 wheelsize and 125mm of VPP rear travel. It is available in several build kit options and two different carbon layups, the Carbon and the Carbon R, to get you on the trails regardless of your budget.
