$2,699.00
Part endurance racer, part rowdy trail bike…the Joplin is ridiculously fun. A luxurious endurance ride and raucous little trail bike all at once, the Joplin is a Jackie of all trades and mistress to no one. Mastery of speed and distance is the name of the game here. 29-inch wheels are proven to roll quicker than smaller sizes, with the added benefit of smoothing out the rough stuff with greater ease — just the ticket for going that little bit faster and further than you’ve gone before. The Joplin also delivers surprisingly quick acceleration and a nimble feel for a big-wheeled bike. Make no mistake, this is a punchy climber with great geometry for charging uphill. Naturally suited to cross-country ventures, the lightweight aluminum and 110mm VPP travel turn multi-day expeditions into effortless Grand Tours. Backed up by a lifetime warranty no matter how far or hard you go, the Joplin is the kind of rock-rolling royalty that never grows old.

Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminum D
$2,699.00
The 5010 is the most fun you can have on two off-road wheels, and Danny MacAskill’s wee bike of choice. Turning trails into pump tracks and logs into launches, this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. It's a laser-sharp, agile trail whip that turns on a dime and loves to pop and play. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. A firm beginning stroke makes for responsive, snappy pedaling and provides support for small bump, bump-jump playfulness, while the progressive curve offers the bottom-out resistance to make it feel like there’s a lot more travel than there actually is. There’s also more than enough tire clearance to run just about any size tire, with room to run 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing. The 5010 Aluminum D is your entry point into the lineup and features dependable components and a high-quality aluminum frame that bring Santa Cruz's impressive platform within reach. SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes and a wide-range 1x11 drivetrain keep this 5010 running fast up or down the mountain, and 27.5-inch tubeless-ready WTB rims paired to Maxxis Minion tires sport the width and grip to rip it all. It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Aluminum D
$2,699.00
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. The Santa Cruz Tallboy Aluminum D muddles the line between XC and trail with 110mm of rear wheel travel, paired with a 120mm RockShox Recon RL 120 fork. The aluminum frame delivers outstanding stiffness and low weight while keeping the price range accessible to more riders. Fast-rolling WTB ST i25 29er rims are wrapped in front- and rear-specific Maxxis tires selected to maximize speed and control. The Tallboy climbs almost as well as a straight-up cross-country bike, providing 11 wide-ranging gears from SRAM’s NX drivetrain. But it shows its true colors when the trail turns downward, where SRAM Level hydraulic brakes precisely control speed while the brilliantly simple yet effective suspension design keeps you glued to your line without weighing you down. The Tallboy’s short-travel chassis gives it scalpel-like handling while maintaining tremendous trail capability. At first glance, 110mm of travel might seem like it’ll get overwhelmed on technical trails, but 110mm of travel designed and tuned by the experts at Santa Cruz will usher you through some pretty fast, hairy terrain long before waving the white flag, delivering the descending goods for a fraction of the climbing costs.

Juliana Roubion Aluminum R
$3,499.00
Ready to rally the world, the Roubion was born from Santa Cruz racers’ love of events like the Trans-Provence and named after one of Anka Martin’s favorite stages of that race. With 150mm VPP travel and stable geometry built around a 65° head tube angle, this is the bike for facing the unknown in demanding terrain. Radically redesigned into a lower-link mounted shock configuration, the Roubion has taken notes from the Strega’s spell-book. The resulting suspension performance allows you to push harder and charge towards things you used to think were a big deal. The beauty of VPP suspension is that it requires no links in the rear triangle. This creates a one-piece unified carbon swingarm that’s a piece of engineering art and the rock-solid reason why the Roubion tracks so well in rough conditions. You could call the Roubion “all mountain” or “enduro." Santa Cruz calls it “capable of anything." Of course, VPP is a key factor in the Roubion's all-mountain prowess, but the components have to play a big supporting role. With the Roubion Aluminum R, you get SRAM's NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, Guide T hydraulic brakes, and a RockShox Yari and Super Deluxe fork/shock combo for no-nonsense performance across the field. Tubeless-ready WTB rims and Maxxis Minon tires provide great traction thanks to the ability to run lower tire pressures, and the wide internal rim profile creates a larger footprint for better stability on off-camber tech. A wide and stiff Race Face bar and stem and Race Face Aeffect dropper post increase control on high-speed descents, setting you up with the stance and performance you need to smoke the competition.
Santa Cruz Bronson Aluminum R
$3,499.00
Santa Cruz's most notorious thriller, the Bronson, is ready for action no matter what role it's cast into. The Bronson has the biggest personality in our range. From flat-out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. It’s like our most capable all-around bike just had a set of afterburners bolted on. With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point, however twisted you get. There’s plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. We offer build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus-size, using 2.6 tires. It feels like the sorta big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires. Its versatility makes Bronson the go-to choice for those seeking a skeleton key to unlock unfamiliar trails. - Aluminum frame - RockShox Yari RC 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select rear shock - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - WTB ST i29 TCS rims with SRAM MTH hubs - Maxxis Minion 2.5/2.4" tires - Race Face Aeffect dropper post

Santa Cruz Hightower A R
$3,499.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. The Aluminum R build is ready to ride with SRAM's 12-speed NX drivetrain, Guide R hydraulic disc brakes, and wide tubeless-ready WTB ST i29 TCS rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires. The RockShox Yari RC fork and Fox Float Performance DPS shock supply stiffness and sensitivity where you want it, and a Race Face Ride stem paired to an Aeffect R 780mm bar with 35mm clamp ensures superior handling all the way around.
Santa Cruz Nomad Aluminum R
$3,599.00
Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope on how lawless a single-crown bike can get while still remaining a capable daily driver. The latest iteration nudged the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and Santa Cruz surprised themselves at just how well-rounded it turned out. The fourth generation design saw a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. The shock rate is a short-travel version of the V10 — which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, supportive mid-stroke, and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To handle all this newfound capability, the geometry was adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. At the same time, the Nomad’s still a trail bike. It pedals well and tackles valley-to-valley alpine runs and all-day missions without skipping a beat — a fact helped by its pedal-friendly seat tube angle and standard 170mm dropper post fit. The Nomad Aluminum R is the gateway into all-mountain capability. A RockShox Yari fork followed by a Super Deluxe R shock work together to give you predictable control in big terrain. Wide-range gearing is supplied by SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain and is backed up by Guide RE brakes and 200mm rotors for dependable stopping power on any trail, and tubeless-ready WTB/SRAM wheelset and Maxxis Minion tires supply the grip to rip. A Race Face cockpit and WTB Silverado Race saddle wrap up this stellar package.
Santa Cruz Stigmata Rival 700c
$3,599.00
The road goes on forever and the party never ends When the Stigmata was resurrected in 2015, we fused a number of MTB standards and design features to create our spin on the modern CX bike. Something must have clicked, because within months of launch it raced to victory at the legendary Three Peaks, and has continued to contend at elite cyclocross races around the world. Nowadays, the internally routed disc brakes, generous tire clearance, and thru-axles approach that made the Stigmata famous have become more of a norm, so we took a fresh look at which standards the riders of tomorrow wanted access to today. Threaded bottom brackets remain a perennial favorite across our entire line thanks to their proven robust, cost-effective, and compatible design. “If it ain’t broke…” ...and it never is. Fender mounts add a bit of CYA and highlight the Stigmata’s ever-widening scope of purpose. We added to that with three bottle cage mounts so that the frame can still hold at least one normal bottle even when running a front triangle bag. Deeper adventures, bigger tires perhaps? The frame now clears up to a 45mm 700c or a 2.1” 650b tire. Marry the latter to our Force/X01 AXS mashup kit and you’ve got yourself the kind of drop-bar singletrack rallycat we can all get on board with. And when it comes to good old-fashioned off-road etiquette, the Stigmata’s had some coaching at the Highball school of stiffness, handling, and offroad feel. The carbon layup borrows knowledge gained from not just the Highball, but also Danny MacAskill’s trials bike, to produce a ride so law-abiding you’d think HR had sent it on a compliance training course. Geometry plays a big part here too, so we’ve made tweaks to improve handling for smaller riders and reduce toe overlap. The reworking of the 52/54cm frames means the Stigmata now comfortably suits riders from 5’3” and up. Different fork offsets—50mm for the 52-54cm sizes, and 45mm for the 56-61cm sizes—help ensure your little piggies don’t go to market on the front wheel. Topped off with tidy details like 12mm front axle, flat mount brakes, and build-specific Reserve wheel packages, the Stigmata is designed to let you decide whatever the heck you want this category to be.
Santa Cruz Blur Carbon C R
$3,699.00
Full gas, 24/7. Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur does it all without compromise. No matter how demanding your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. At just 2060g this is Santa Cruz's lightest ever 100mm full suspension frame. The ultra-efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got rocket-like acceleration on demand. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to Santa Cruz's World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. The Blur Carbon C R build supplies everything you need to satisfy your need for speed: wide range 1x11 SRAM NX gearing, Level T hydraulic disc brakes, and a Fox 32 Factory Step Cast fork and Float Performance DPS shock. Tubeless-ready WTB rims and Maxxis Aspen tires float over chunky rocks and buffed singletrack alike, and the Race Face Aeffect bar and stem combo gives you precise steering control. Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to take those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon.
Santa Cruz Stigmata Carbon CC Rival
$3,699.00
Santa Cruz might be late to the carbon road bike party, but with its rich history in carbon fiber frame design, you know the Stigmata has to be good. Think of it as the 'cross bike for mountain bikers. Or the light, responsive, and fast gravel bike you reach for when you're not sure where you'll end up. The Stigmata Carbon CC Rival features Santa Cruz' top-tier carbon frame and a build that's ready to explore. It's fitted with a tubeless-ready WTB/DT Swiss wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Rambler 40c tires, SRAM's Rival 22 drivetrain and Rival hydraulic disc brakes, and a Zipp Service Course cockpit topped with a WTB Silverado Road saddle. With clearance for a muddy 41mm tire, the Stigmata grants you access to the best of what's out there. How far you go is up to you.
Santa Cruz Chameleon 7.0 C S 27.5+
$3,799.00
The tin lizard has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully-imagined carbon fiber creature. It’s Darwinism in action. Santa Cruz took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon and added a lighter, faster, more advanced version of the species. It’s a do-it-all hardtail that is as happy making the most of backyard booter (mis)adventures as it is fully-loaded with camp gear and a color-matched dangle mug. The Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27.5-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between. Two bottle cage mounts, including a triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube mean you can escape from the crowds, too. Depending on setup and skill level, the Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around use. Going for maximum speed and rollability? Go 29er. Riding mostly loose terrain? Get some Plus tires that provide traction for days.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C R
$3,899.00
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. The Santa Cruz Tallboy muddles the line between XC and trail with 110mm of rear wheel travel paired with a 120mm Fox Rhythm 34 fork. Fast-rolling WTB ST i29 29er rims are wrapped in front- and rear-specific Maxxis tires selected to maximize speed and control. The Tallboy climbs almost as well as a straight-up cross-country bike, due in part to the 12 wide-ranging gears from SRAM’s NX Eagle drivetrain. But it shows its true colors when the trail turns downward, where SRAM Level T hydraulic brakes put precise control and reliable power at your fingertips and the brilliantly simple yet effective suspension design keeps you glued to your line without weighing you down. The Tallboy’s short-travel chassis gives it scalpel-like handling while maintaining tremendous trail capability. At first glance, 110mm of travel might seem like it’ll get overwhelmed on technical trails, but 110mm of travel designed and tuned by the experts at Santa Cruz will usher you through some pretty fast, hairy terrain long before waving the white flag, delivering the descending goods for a fraction of the climbing costs.
Juliana Furtado Carbon C R
$3,999.00
Some people want a garage full of bikes for every occasion. Others want just one that’s good for any occasion. The Furtado is that bike. The balance of 130mm VPP travel and a 66.5-deg head tube angle delivers a ride that’s nimble on tight technical stuff yet perfectly poised on tricky descents too. The upper-link driven VPP design is engineered to be ultra-responsive. A firm initial stroke creates tight pedaling performance straight off the bat, while Juliana’s lighter shock tune remains supple enough to handle small bumps and keep things feeling playful. Deeper into the travel the progressive shock rate delivers a subtle bottom-out resistance that makes it feel like there’s more travel than there actually is. The Furtado Carbon C R features Santa Cruz' mid-level carbon frame and is suitable for almost all types of riders and trails. Thanks to a tubeless-ready WTB/SRAM wheelset and grippy 2.3-inch Maxxis Minion tires it has a unique personality that ranges from feisty dance partner on hot laps to trusty companion on more far-flung adventures. SRAM's NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain is quiet while providing excellent chain-hold, and Guide T hydraulic disc brakes have impressive stopping power. A wide Race Face handlebar and short stem combo deliver precise steering control that's followed by the Fox 34 Rhythm's 130mm of smooth suspension travel. A Fox Float DPS rear shock makes easy work of chunky singletrack, too, letting you pedal through the chunder and fly down technical descents with confidence. Juliana's own grips and saddle round out this excellent trail machine.

Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C R
$3,999.00
The 5010 is the most fun you can have on two off-road wheels and Danny MacAskill’s wee bike of choice. Turning trails into pump tracks and logs into launches, this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. It's a laser-sharp, agile trail whip that turns on a dime and loves to pop and play. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. A firm beginning stroke makes for responsive, snappy pedaling and provides support for small bump, bump-jump playfulness, while the progressive curve offers the bottom-out resistance to make it feel like there’s a lot more travel than there actually is. There’s also more than enough tire clearance to run just about any size tire, with room to run 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing. The 5010 Carbon C R is a great entry point into the 5010’s carbon lineup and features SRAM's NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for all-out speed as well as mountain goat-like climbing ability. Fox keeps you on target and soaks up landings with a Rhythm 34 fork and DPS shock. SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes keep this 5010 under control on fast descents, and 27.5-inch tubeless-ready WTB rims paired to Maxxis Minion tires sport the width and grip to rip it all. It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool.
