Why We Like The Santa Cruz Stigmata Carbon CC Rival AXS 1x Gravel Bike
The Santa Cruz Stigmata Carbon CC Rival AXS 1x Gravel Bike is a versatile gravel-grinder built for rocky trails, gravel backroads, and fresh tarmac, which is why we think it is a must-have for our extreme gravel adventures. Its high-performance Carbon CC layup and Stigmata CC fork offer excellent stiffness and strength, allowing for better compliance and a major decrease in vibrations. Its modern geometry features a 71 to 72-degree head tube angle and a lower threaded bottom bracket, allowing for a comfortable and efficient ride.
Built with the Rival AXS 1x drivetrain, the Stigmata delivers accurate, smooth, and quick shifting to accommodate the style of every rider, whether ripping down a hill, conquering a steep climb, or just flying down the flats. Its Maxxis Ravager EXO tires ensure the traction we need for any terrain, while three bottle cage mounts provide plenty of storage space for our bottles or gear bags.
