Why We Like The Santa Cruz Stigmata Carbon CC Force 2x 700c Reserve Gravel Bike
Whether we're putting down the hammer between the tapes on the 'cross circuit or heading out for our next gravel century, the Santa Cruz Stigmata has everything we need to make our all-road dreams a reality. The lightweight Carbon CC frame and fork construction perfectly blends stiffness and strength for just enough compliance to hold the perfect line and exceptional vibration damping that allows us to ride longer without succumbing to the effects of washboard gravel. The modern geometry features a 71 to 72-degree headtube angle depending on the size, allowing us to get into a riding position that is not only comfortable for long days but also powerful so that we can leave our competition in the dust. Internally routed cables clean up the cockpit and create a quiet ride, while three bottle cage mounts ensure we still have hydration nearby when we're running a frame bag.
The top-of-the-line Stigmata Carbon CC Force 2x 700c Reserve is built to be as lightweight as possible while still giving us the capability to tackle whatever terrain we choose. Starting with a 2x SRAM Force AXS drivetrain for lightning-fast shifting that won't give us issues even on those last-second shifts when a climb sneaks up on us. Durable Reserve 25|GR carbon 700c rims are laced up to quick-engaging Industry Nine 1/1 hubs giving us the power to hold a line through technical sections and the speed to pull away from the pack in the flats. The Santa Cruz Stigmata Carbon CC Force 2x 700c Reserve Gravel Bike is built to be at the front of the pack and is a worthy steed for any adventure.
