Santa Cruz 5010 C S
$4,599.00
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon C S from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The S build includes SRAM Guide R brakes and SRAM GX 1x drivetrain for taming uphill battles, and the Fox Float Performance shock and Fox 34 Float Performance fork enable confidence at speed. For the 5010 C, Santa Cruz used a slightly less expensive carbon fiber, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the Carbon CC, with a slight 280-gram weight increase.
Santa Cruz Hightower LT XE Carbon C
$5,699.00
Santa Cruz's Hightower LT Carbon C XE 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 C XE comes equipped with a 150mm-travel Fox 36 Float fork, Fox Float Performance shock and Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package.
Santa Cruz Hightower 29 X01 Carbon CC
$6,799.00 - $7,999.00
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 X01 comes equipped with a Fox 36 Performance Elite 140mm fork, Fox Float Performance Elite DPS 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 C S
$4,599.00
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy 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 and 120mm 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 29er wheelset or 27.5+ thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy C S, Santa Cruz ups the build with SRAM Level TL brakes and GX 1x11 shifting bits, and a Fox 34 Float Performance fork and Float Performance rear shock. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
Santa Cruz Tallboy CC X01+
$6,599.00
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy X01+ 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 X01+, Santa Cruz jumps to Eagle territory with SRAM's 1 x 12-speed drivetrain. A Fox 34 Float Performance Elite 130mm fork and Float Performance Elite rear shock are plenty capable, and the wide Race Face ARC 40 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 Tallboy R Carbon C 27+
$3,899.00
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 R 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 suspension components keep the tires glued to the ground while power is efficiently transferred through a SRAM NX 1x11 transmission. SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes mated to 180mm rotors keep speed in check, and the Race Face cockpit includes an Aeffect dropper post and a stiff 35mm-bore handlebar for the ultimate experience in bike handling and control.

A Fox 34 Float Factory fork and Float Factory DPS Kashima rear shock keep the tires where they belong, and an optioned Santa Cruz Reserve carbon wheelset ups the bling factor while keeping overall weight down. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frames, but shaves off weight in key areas of the frame.
Santa Cruz Hightower XX1 Carbon CC 27+

A Fox 34 Float 29 Performance Elite fork and Float Performance Elite rear shock keep the tires where they belong, and an optioned ENVE carbon wheelset ups the bling factor while keeping overall weight below 27 pounds. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed Santa Cruz to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.

Santa Cruz Nomad R Carbon C
$4,499.00
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 WTB i25 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber are built around Boost hub spacing for increased torsional strength, and the RockShox Yari RC fork smooths brake-bumped berms and sketchy landings to keep you focused on the 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.

Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C R+
$4,399.00
Since the day it was born the Bronson has had the biggest personality in Santa Cruz's range of bikes. 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. 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. Santa Cruz offers build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus using 2.6 tires. It feels like 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. The Bronson Carbon C R+ serves as an entry into Santa Cruz's famed carbon technology, featuring SRAM's NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes paired to 200mm front and 180mm rear rotors, and a Race Face bar and stem combo. A wide tubeless-ready WTB wheelset wrapped in 2.6-inch Maxxis Minion tires provide extra bite on sketchy terrain, and the RockShox Yari fork and Super Deluxe shock complement the VPP suspension design, giving you off-the-top response with the capability for big airs when you're ready.
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.
Santa Cruz Tallboy C S+
$4,599.00

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 wheels thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy C S+, Santa Cruz ups the build with SRAM Level TL brakes, GX 1 x 11-speed shifting bits, and a Fox 34 Float Performance fork.
Santa Cruz V10 CC X01
$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.

Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon C S
$5,199.00 - $6,399.00
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. This Hightower Carbon S build pegs the fun meter at 11. You get fantastic front-end control through the stiff and supple RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork, complemented by a Super Deluxe Select+ shock to keep you feeling planted through the roughest rock gardens. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain fires off shifts with minimal effort, while SRAM Code R brakes and wide Race Face AR Offset 30 rims — or Santa Cruz's own Reserve 30 Carbon for enhanced performance — wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires give you maximum control whether you're railing through the turns or bombing a rowdy descent. A Race Face Ride stem, Aeffect R bar, and RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post finish the build.
Santa Cruz 5010 R1x
$2,999.00
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 R1x from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The 5010 R1x build features the smooth Fox Rhythm fork, SRAM NX 1x drivetrain, and SRAM Level T brakes to maintain performance and reliability at a budget-friendly price. For extra weight reduction, Santa Cruz designed the aluminum-framed 5010 with an integrated headset and nixed ISCG tabs, but otherwise includes all the features you'd find on the higher-level carbon frames to make an affordable, strong package for bagging epic trails.
Santa Cruz Hightower C S+
$4,599.00
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 S+ version, this means plus-size 27.5 x 2.8 tires for extra float and traction on sketchy terrain.

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 RockShox Pike RCT3 fork and Monarch Plus RC3 shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide RSC 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 top-tier 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 by 280 grams, and with the optioned carbon ENVE wheelset this light heavyweight tips the scales at just over 27 pounds.

Santa Cruz 5010 CC XT
$6,199.00 - $8,199.00
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon CC from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The XT build features excellent components from Shimano, including a 2x drivetrain for taming uphill battles. The Fox Float Performance Elite shock and Fox 34 Float Performance Elite fork enable confidence at speed. For the 5010 CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight by half a pound—with the optioned ENVE carbon wheelset you're looking at 28.1 pounds of riotous mountain bike fun.
Santa Cruz Hightower CC X01+
$6,599.00
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 X01+ 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 X01 comes equipped with a RockShox Pike 29 RCT3 150mm fork, Monarch RT3 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 by 230 grams.
