Santa Cruz V10 X01 Carbon CC
$8,599.00 - $10,699.00
It takes a special breed to ride with the speed and consequence of downhill mountain biking. Gnarled, exposed roots and loose, square-edged rocks mix with quickly changing dirt conditions over the course of a few minutes, while gravity increasingly challenges your constitution as you race toward the finish. This is the world of the Santa Cruz V10. With 216mm/8.5-inches of travel built into a stiff and durable carbon fiber frame, this DH dream mobs everything on the trail. Two adjustable geometry settings allow you to dial-in the perfect ride, and 27.5-inch wheels provide strength and increased rollover clearance for faster times on the track. The V10 Carbon CC X01 build includes a Fox 40 Float RC2 fork, Race Face SIXC Carbon 165mm cranks, and SRAM Guide RSC brakes paired to Avid Centerline rotors to create a podium-level DH bike that's eager to please.
Santa Cruz Hightower XX1 Carbon CC 27+
$8,099.00 - $10,099.00
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the wagon-wheel paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. In the case of the 27+ version, this means plus-size 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires for extra float and traction on sketchy terrain. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or change to 29ers for extra speed and precision. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose, thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a Fox 36 150mm fork, Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima shock, and SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain for uncompromising performance no matter where you ride. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight.
Santa Cruz Tallboy XX1 Carbon CC 27+
$7,999.00 - $9,999.00
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy 27+ Carbon CC XX1 is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle combined with plush 2.8-inch tires and 130mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or 29-inch thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy CC XX1+, Santa Cruz jumps to Eagle territory with SRAM's 1 x 12-speed drivetrain. A Fox 34 Float Factory 130mm fork and Float Factory DPS Kashima rear shock are plenty capable, and wide rims create a generous tire profile for ripping through loose, sketchy trail.
Santa Cruz Nomad XX1 Carbon CC
$8,199.00 - $9,399.00
Santa Cruz's Nomad Carbon CC XX1 reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going they've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference. Full shock compatibility creates challenges when trying to cram everything into the precious bottom bracket area. But the continued evolution of Santa Cruz carbon tech means they're able to create a svelte, strong, swingarm/front triangle combo that's as much art as it is engineering. Santa Cruz even managed to squeeze in a flip-chip feature on the lower link too. Think of the high setting as "regular", the way the bike's mostly meant to be ridden, and the low setting as being closer to full on DH status. To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The XX1 build steps-up performance with a SRAM Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.
Santa Cruz Bronson XX1 Carbon CC
$8,099.00 - $9,299.00
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox 36 F150 fork and Fox Float Factory DPX Kashima shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. The XX1 build takes you into the 12-speed realm of SRAM Eagle power transmission with the XX1 Eagle carbon cranks and XX1 Eagle derailleur. For the Bronson CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight.
Santa Cruz Hightower 29 XX1 Carbon CC
$8,099.00 - $9,299.00
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Santa Cruz didn't stop with simple updates in frame design to up this big-wheeler's appeal, though. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 29er wheelset or change to 27.5+ for extra float and traction in sketchy conditions. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a Fox 36 140mm fork, Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima shock, and a 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain for uncompromising performance no matter where you ride. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight.

$8,099.00 - $9,299.00
Santa Cruz's Hightower LT Carbon CC XX1 is made to go fast, give you a bigger margin of error, and take on the biggest mountains in the world. With a whopping 150mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 66.4-degree head angle, the Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s truly race-bred, its design the result of the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents while putting you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. The increased travel means the reach is slightly (7mm) shorter than the standard Hightower, the head angle a half-degree slacker, and the seat angle a half-degree slacker, as well. The rear triangle retains the dual upright design, but adds a post-mount rear brake. The Hightower LT Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a 150mm-travel Fox 36 Factory fork, Fox Float Factory DPX Kashima shock and 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package.

The Tallboy 29 Carbon C XE build features a wide-range Shimano XT/e*thirteen drivetrain, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post to create a trail bike that's ready for your wildest adventures.
Santa Cruz Tallboy XE Carbon C 27+
$5,499.00
Forget about discouraging slippery roots and momentum-sucking sand — the Tallboy 27+ is pure inspiration when it comes to tackling challenging terrain. Wide 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires are the secret to your success, providing extra traction and float thanks to the larger contact patch. Paired with 110mm of VPP suspension in the rear and 130mm up front, you'll find the Tallboy's stance to be perfectly suited for picking your way up gnarly climbs as well as maintaining speed over soft and loose surfaces. The Tallboy 27+ Carbon C XE is built around Santa Cruz' updated carbon frame and includes a Flip-Chip that changes the bike's geometry to accommodate 29-inch wheels, giving you supreme versatility in just one bike. Fox Float Performance suspension components keep the tires glued to the ground while power is efficiently transferred through a wide-range Shimano XT/e*thirteen transmission. Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, a Reverb Stealth dropper post, and a Race Face carbon bar all come together to create the ultimate experience in bike handling and control.
Santa Cruz Nomad S Carbon C
$5,299.00
With the Nomad Carbon C, the search for all-mountain prowess comes to an end with satisfying certainty. 170mm of Santa Cruz VPP suspension provides a linear shock rate that mimics the feel of longer-travel DH bikes, and the RockShox Super Deluxe Air R rear shock delivers ample control, from big-air jump lines to technical, rocky descents. 27.5-inch e13 TRS rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber are built around Boost hub spacing for increased torsional strength, and the RockShox Lyrik RC fork smooths brake-bumped berms and sketchy landings to keep you focused on your line ahead. Smart details show that Santa Cruz knows a thing or two about gravity-fueled mountain biking, like a bolt-on shuttle guard and downtube protector, double-sealed collet axle pivots, a recessed lower link, and an integrated shock fender to keep your suspension clean. The Nomad Carbon C S build is finished with a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, Code R hydraulic disc brakes paired with 180mm rotors, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post to ensure maximum confidence on absolutely everything you ride.
