The ambassador.

For decades, the worlds of mountain and road bikes were intractably separated, with either discipline keeping a jealous guard on its technological sovereignty. Cyclocross has made some inroads into this divide, but Santa Cruz's enterprising Stigmata Carbon CC Force CX1 Complete Bike, newly revived for 2016, is the most complete ambassador between the two rival factions that we've seen to date.

The Stigmata brings together a geometry that triangulates between road, 'cross, and gravel with off-road elements like the 15 and 12x142 millimeter thru-axles you'd expect on the most venerated full-suspension machines being produced today. The wheelbase is actually tighter than many of the other gravel/'cross machines coming out of manufacturers traditionally associated with mountain bikes, but it mimics them in chainstay length and head and seat tube angles. The frame's middle-road geometry recommends the Stigmata as the industry diplomat, able to cleanly transition from light off-road duty to cyclocross to the road simply by changing tires.

The SRAM hydraulic disc brakes and one-by Force drivetrain also shade the 'cross styling of the Force kit with a bipartisan tinge, while a list of features originally associated with road machines — including internal routing for cables, carbon dropouts and disc mounts, and electronic drivetrain compatibility — pull the bike back toward the skinny-tire camp. Whatever your application, the 27.2 millimeter seatpost will provide vertical compliance to smooth out anything from mellow washboard to chipseal tarmac, and the tapered head tube makes for a stiff front end for efficient climbing and sprinting with sharp tracking for control when off-road terrain acts up.

Can the wheels be swapped out for some Enve's. If so which one do you recommend? The new 4.5 AR's look awesome.


Hi Steve,

These are complete builds from SC so the wheels cant be swapped. However, we could add a set on Enve's with good pricing and build the bike with those. The new 4.5 AR's are available although we don't have them on the site yet we do have them in stock. Those wheels are built around 28mm tires but you could run up to 42mm wide tires on those rims. Enve does not recommend them though if you are going to be running anything bigger that 30mm tires on that rim as any bigger you lose the aerodynamics of the 4.5. If you want to run a bigger tire I would recommend the M50 mtn wheel. It will be lighter and you can mount a tire as narrow as 25mm on them.

If you need help with pricing or further questions feel free to contact me direct

Best of the best Road/CX/Gravel

    "If Ferrari made an off road vehicle,that's what it would be like to ride the Santa Cruz Stigmata"--One of the best,most versatile bikes we offer the Stigmata is becoming a legend in only a couple of years. I own this bike and I must say pulling the trigger on it was the best bike decision I've made in years.If you are looking for a single bike to do all things skinny tire style, the Stigmata is your rig. It rides well on the road, exudes courage in gravel and can handle any CX course you will encounter. Light,smooth and spunky would sum it up. To put things into perspective I have a Pinarello collecting dust in my basement because there is a new boss in the house! If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up!

    We do have some closeouts coming in with very good pricing. Contact me for details. If you need help configuring this bike or have general questions feel free to reach out to me direct. Ive got around 1500 miles on mine over various terrains so very familiar with the performance over time. We can do some minor swapping of parts.

    It's Like a Swiss Army Knife

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Cyslocross, sure it can handle that. Gravel grinding, yup, it can handle that too. Long summer road rides, no problem. The beauty of this bike is that it can do all these disciplines to the highest level and allows you to have one bike, not 3. I will go as far as saying this may be the most versatile bike out there.
    When you want to hit the gravel this machine will fit 41mm wide tires to allow for plenty for mudslinging and trench digging. However, when you want to put the Assos kit on and pretty up it will handle effortlessly with skinnies, I would recommend Gatorskins 28mm, but that’s me.
    This bike and many others at this caliper are changing the game, 4K for a bicycle is a lot, but when you’re getting 3 for 1 it is not bad at all. Love the X1 – have yet to drop a chain in cross or well riding on the trail training. Sizing on this is pretty standard, I’m a 52 on the road and the 52 fit me prefect, so no need to size down (saddle height is 71.0cm, measured from center of BB to top of saddle). If I did more rode riding with it I would have went with a 54cm for a more upright position. Please hit me up if you have any questions or need anything at all – happy to help out.

    Sexy Stigmata!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Let me start by letting you know I love this bike! I am primarily a mountain bike enthusiast that was wanting to get a bike that could double as a cross and road bike. I ordered the CC frame putting it together with a modest build of primarily 105 hydraulics and drive train. I have two separate wheel sets for road and cross both being tubeless.
    On the road I am running Schwalbe Pro One tubeless in a 28 and could not be happier. They have saved me from numerous flats and roll amazingly well. On the trail I am running WTB Cross Boss in a 35 and tubeless. These are great so far ridden in mainly dry and dusty conditions.
    I have around 700 miles on mixed road and trail with the Crater Lake Century thrown in the mix. It has handled all I have thrown at it with flying colors. For perspective I am 5'11" riding a 56 fitting me perfect. While being very comfortable on the century it was snappy out of the saddle on sprints. Going down hill it is stable and confidence inspiring.
    Since I come from the dirt side of things it's handling characteristics make me smile while carving corner after corner. I have encountered fast smooth double track the tight rough single track with it excelling in both areas. My first cross race is not for another few weeks so I cannot elaborate on that yet, but am confident it will perform well.

    If you are looking for a bike that is versatile look no further. The Stigmata will take care of you while putting a smile on your face.

    Sexy Stigmata!

    What's the fattest tire this bike can take?

    Hey Rodrigo, Santa Cruz says that 40mm is the widest they've run on it and there is still a bit of clearance for mud (or extra tire). Let me know if you have any other questions on it - feel free to reach me at 801.204.4547 or cojohnson@backcountry.com ! Cheers, Connor

    Any chance you will have a closeout sale on this guy ? I'm waiting for a 20% sale to buy one.

    Hey Westbank, I'd be happy to talk pricing with you! I just set over an email! Cheers, Connor

    Any chance you guys can find another one of these laying around anywhere in a 54? Would really like to grab one (and definitely from Backcountry).

    Hey Eric,

    Looks like we have a few Stigmata Carbon CCs on order from Santa Cruz in a size 54 cm. Feel free to contact me directly and I can put one on hold for you and get you a definitive timeline.

    Outstanding CX racer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I chose this bike for its geometry first and its internal cable routing second. Thru axles were a definite bonus.

    I had been riding a Felt F2X but the rear derailleur cable had a typical, under the BB external routing which meant muck would increase cable friction and up shifting would be sketch at best. It was a 53cm bike which meant my toes could hit the front tire. While that's ok for a road bike, it's disconcerting for a bike that one has to maneuver as in CX.

    In order to eliminate the toe-to-wheel issue the only real choice is a larger frame, but a larger frame means more difficult remounts - not with the Stigmata!

    The bike I bought is a 54 cm so it is larger and my toe can't hit the front wheel. But the geometry is such that remounts are no issue. Santa Cruz dropped the BB so the cockpit contact points (bars, saddle) are nominally the same as the Felt.

    Problems solved!

    On top of that the Stigmata handles like a dream.
