Why We Like The Stigmata Carbon CC Gravel Bike Frame
The folks at Santa Cruz know that internal cable routing, disc brakes, ample tire clearance, and thru-axles have become a standard. They dove deeper to take a look at what can be done with the Stigmata Carbon CC Gravel Bike Frame to make it a top-of-the-line gravel frameset for those of us dedicated to the discipline. It's designed to let us decide what we want it to be, whether that's a gravel grinder for roaming remote paths or an adventure frame for multi-day excursions.
Beefier tires are a start, and this frame now clears up to a 45mm 700c or 2.1in 650b tire. The threaded bottom bracket makes an improvement with a robust and cost-effective design, and fender mounts give way to opportunities to what the bike can do out there. We appreciate that the carbon layup borrows knowledge from the beloved Highball for a ride with improved compliance, and the geometry of this frame enhances handling for smaller riders and reduces toe overlap so our toes never get too friendly with the front wheel.
*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
