2020 Santa Cruz Bicycles Guide

Santa Cruz Bicycles History

Founded in 1993 by Rich Novak, Mike Marquez, and former professional skateboarder Rob Roskopp, Santa Cruz Bicycles is known for building rider-centered bikes. The company hand-assembles all its models in its California factory. Santa Cruz has been dedicated since its inception to producing the most high-performance mountain bikes on the planet – and many believe they have achieved that mission. The company is beloved for being large enough to have strong R&D but small enough not to be impersonal or otherwise lose sight of its customers.

Important Santa Cruz Bicycles Technology

The Santa Cruz Virtual Pivot Point (VPP)

One of the critical technologies for which Santa Cruz is known is its virtual pivot point (VPP) design. The patented concept behind VPP is to have two short links that rotate in opposite directions. This type of suspension was embraced by the company because it provides more design flexibility, enabling Santa Cruz to adjust shock rates based on the desired personality and intended use of the bike.

Santa Cruz Carbon Fiber Bike Technology

Santa Cruz Another technology that has made Santa Cruz Bicycles famous is its carbon fiber manufacturing – which has been geared toward making it more affordable for people to get their carbon frames. The higher quality carbon fiber frames are known as Carbon CC and are on the highest end build kits, while the Carbon C (the more affordable carbon version) is available on bikes with build kits below the XT / X0-1 Level.  The firm uses proprietary techniques to cut the cost while maintaining impressive rigidity and strength. To achieve that end, Santa Cruz uses a different carbon grade that results in negligible weight gain of 0.6 pounds per frame.

2020 Santa Cruz Nomad Full Suspension Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz Nomad

Trail and freeride bike for big terrain

Spec Highlights: 170mm front and rear travel / 27.5" wheel size / Carbon C, Carbon CC, or Aluminum.

The basic idea behind the Nomad is to create a trail bike that best resembles downhill characteristics while still delivering an excellent ride on trails and when freeriding.

Every new version of the Nomad expands the layout and travel, with copious testing to ensure that maneuverability is still the core point of focus.   

Dirty Details

The 2020 Nomad benefited from the evolution of the V10, with Santa Cruz applying that downhill knowledge to this trail bike in a substantial transition to a lower-link mounted shock setup.

The movement of the bike, grounding midstroke, and ability to maintain light-as-air sensitivity through minor bumps are elements that would typically only come with a downhill model – all possible because of a nearly linear shock rate. You can outfit it with either metric coil or air shocks.

By creating a design that allows people to switch out shocks as they prefer, space in the region of the bottom bracket gets tight. However, Santa Cruz's superior understanding of carbon technology has allowed it to innovate with a front triangle and swingarm that exemplify both sturdiness and smoothness.


The Models

The 2020 Nomad is broken down into 6 build kits. There are (ranked by price) two Aluminum models, two C Carbon models, and two CC Carbon models.

Models denoted with an 'R' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'S' build kit enjoys more upgrades. X01 and XX1 models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Hightower Full Suspension Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz Hightower

An all mountain 29er for every situation

Spec Highlights: 140mm rear travel / 150mm fork / 29" wheels / Aluminum, C Carbon, CC Carbon

The Santa Cruz Hightower hits a sweet spot that is pretty tough to nail. It's a do-it-all mid-travel trail bike that is at home on death-defying descents while somehow remaining ultra-maneuverable. The Hightower nestles in between the Megatower's long travel gravity capabilities and the Tallboy's shredding prowess. When you want ultimate versatility, the Hightower's got your back.


Dirty Details

The Hightower is intended to allow the rider to take on huge mountains while maintaining lightning speed. It holds its own on the climbs and transfers and turns on the gas for the downs.

It's got a little more travel than the original model and the slacker 65-degree head tube angle pushes you to really send it in high gravity situations.

The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock soaks up all kinds of bumps and the flip chip disc allows riders to fine tune their ride by slightly adjusting the bottom bracket height.


The Models

The 2020 Hightower is broken down into 8 build kits. There are (ranked by price) three Aluminum models, two C Carbon models, and three CC Carbon models.

Models denoted with an 'D' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'R' and 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01, XTR,  and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Bronson Full Suspension Bike

2020 Santa Cruz bronson

All mountain capability with lots of personality

Spec Highlights: 150mm shock / 160mm fork / 27.5" or 27.5"+ wheels / Aluminum, C Carbon, or CC Carbon frame

The Bronson is Santa Cruz's wild child, ready to throw down any time, anywhere. This bike was made to dominate whether the rider was on The Ridge or in the Trans-Provence. Playfully agile and all-mountain capable, the Bronson might just be the most fun way down the trail.

Dirty Details

The 2020 Bronson utilizes a new lower-link mounted shock configuration that takes this bike's capabilities to 11. You'll love the increased bump performance, supportive midstroke, and a bottom out that you can barely notice.

The redesigned, one-piece swingarm allows the rear wheel to keep tracking through the rough and the 65-degree head angle keeps the handling nimble and responsive. The Plus models come with 2.6" tires but Bronson has clearance for 2.8". 


The Models

The 2020 Bronson is broken down into 14 build kits, with seven 27.5 models and seven 27.5+ models that are denoted by (+). There are (ranked by price) four Aluminum (AL) models, four C Carbon models (C), and six CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'R' indicate the most basic build kits, while the 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01, XTR,  and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz 5010 Full Suspension Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz 5010

Fun-as-hell mid travel trail bike

Spec Highlights: 130mm shock / 130mm fork / 27.5" or 27.5"+ wheels / Aluminum, C Carbon, or CC Carbon frame

If you want to get a feel for the capability of this bike, know that the 5010 is Danny MacAskill's trail bike of choice. The 5010 wants to pop off every obstacle on the trail and seek out the most creative way down the mountain.

Dirty Details

The 5010 is able to take on rigorous and sophisticated uphill rides, featuring a low bottom bracket height, abbreviated chainstay, and 130mm travel. 

Going downhill, you benefit from the bike's superb, finely tuned maneuverability, thanks to its marriage of a short stem and long reach, along with its 66.2-66.5° head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip). 

With the 5010, you will suffer fewer rock strikes with the optimized clearance allowed by the fully recessed lower link; and you will also gain rigidity and toughness with the upper link, which is mounted to the upper tube.


The Models

The 2020 5010 is broken down into 14 build kits, with seven 27.5 models and seven 27.5+ models that are denoted by (+). There are (ranked by price) six Aluminum (AL) models, four C Carbon models (C), and four CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'D' indicate the most basic build kits, while the 'R' and 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01  and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Megatower Full Suspension Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz Megatower

Big wheels, long travel, full sends

Spec Highlights: 160mm shock / 160mm fork / 29" wheels / C Carbon or CC Carbon frame

The Megatower is something of a mashup between the Hightower's all-mountain capability and the V10's scary-good downhill prowess. It's an incredibly confidence-inspiring 29er and it's perfect for high gravity days on big terrain.

Dirty Details

The Megatower employs a similar lower-link driven Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension system as the V10 for the best tracking, bottom out resistance, and small bump, mid-stroke support.

Megatower benefits from two flip chips that allow you to dial in your ride for optimum efficiency. One is housed in the lower-link and lets you adjust bottom bracket height and rear shock progression. The other lives in the rear dropouts and provides 10mm of fore-aft chainstay adjustment to create a more stable or playful ride.

A 76-degree seat tube angle and 65-degree head tube angle combine to give you plenty of cockpit room and ultimate stability on steep, technical descents.


The Models

The 2020 Megatower is broken down into 5 build kits. There are (ranked by price) three C Carbon models (C) and two CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'R' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'S' build kit enjoys more upgrades. X01, XTR, and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy Full Suspension Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy

The gravity-inclined XC/trail bike

Spec Highlights: 120mm shock / 130mm fork / 29" wheels / Aluminum, C Carbon, or CC Carbon frame

The Tallboy is an all-mountain bike that's wonderfully efficient on long, technical climbs while still providing the Santa Cruz downhilling chops you know and love. With a few design tweaks and upgrades, the Tallboy has evolved far beyond what short-travel mountain bikes are capable of.

Dirty Details

This short-travel 29er benefits from 10mm more rear travel than previous model years, and with the addition of the lower-link VPP suspension and a few geometry tweaks, the Tallboy has become a total Bad Boy.

VPP design is so effective because it allows the chassis to be incredibly responsive while keeping the rear shock progressive via the lower-link mount. Plus, the short 430mm chainstays can be adjusted by 10mm to suit different riders and different styles.

Santa Cruz has opened the geometry up a bit on this bike so you can have some serious rowdy fun while keeping the responsive handling that makes the Tallboy such an awesome, versatile machine.


The Models

The 2020 Tallboy is broken down into 9 build kits. There are (ranked by price) two Aluminum models (AL), three C Carbon models (C) and four CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'D' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'R' and 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01, XTR, and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Blur Mountain Bike in black

2020 Santa Cruz Blur

The full throttle, full suspension XC race bike

Spec Highlights: 100mm shock / 100-110mm fork / 29" wheels / C Carbon, or CC Carbon frame

Don't let the rear shock fool you, the Blur is still very much an XC bike at its core. It's got all the lateral stiffness and tracking you need in the race, but adds a level of confidence-inspiring capability that might just save your butt in the rough sections.

Dirty Details

The frame weighs in a 2060g, making it Santa Cruz's lightest ever full suspension frame. The rear triangle and front end are both single pieces for added stiffness and efficient power transfer, and the VPP suspension design benefits from a dual remote lockout.

The Blur comes in two styles: a true XC race build, and the Blur TR, for tougher terrain and when you want a little more freedom to get a bit rowdier. Models with 'TR' or 'Trail' indicate you'll get a beefier fork, dropper post, and knobbier tires.


The Models

The 2020 Blur is broken down into 7 build kits. There are (ranked by price), three C Carbon models (C) and four CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'R' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01, and XX1 AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

Santa Cruz 2020 Highball Hardtail XC mountain bike in blue

2020 Santa Cruz highball

THE THOROUGHBRED HARDTAIL XC RACE BIKE

Spec Highlights:  100mm fork / 29" wheels / C Carbon, or CC Carbon frame

Plain and simple, the Highball is the full carbon hardtail XC race bike that is ready to grind right out of the box. But there's plenty of design elements that make this bike go above and beyond the call of duty.

Dirty Details

The Highball matches the speed and weight of the best XC race bikes out there, but benefits from added capability thanks to a few key features.

This bike is designed to be up for the longest and toughest rides while simultaneously helping riders minimize fatigue. The 27.2 seatpost, carbon frame, and special carbon layup results in a hardtail that doesn't feel so hard when you're on it. The low-angle, bridgeless seatstays connect to the seat tube below the top tube junction in order to help reduce the repetitive, small bumps on the trail.

Also, there's room for 3 bottle cages so you've got all the hydration you need to get on that podium or to the peak and back.


The Models

The 2020 Highball is broken down into 4 build kits. There are (ranked by price), two C Carbon models (C) and two CC Carbon models (CC).

Models denoted with an 'R' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. X01 and AXS models benefit from even further upgrades.

2020 Santa Cruz Chameleon Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz Chameleon

Everyone's favorite versatile hardtail, now in carbon

Spec Highlights: 120mm or 130mm fork / 27.5" or 27.5"+ wheels / Aluminum or C Carbon frame

The Chameleon adapts to its surroundings. Run it geared or single speed, 29" or 27.5", carbon or aluminum. Is it a cross country hardtail, a playful trail bike, or an adventure seeking bikepacking rig? That's up to you.

Dirty Details

This classic bike has been around so many years that riders have often already ridden a previous model-year or are familiar with its reputation. The bike was originally given its name because it can be singlespeed or geared, and it can be ridden on city roads, in the mountains, on pavement or dirt.  And for the first time ever, this legendary mountain bike is available in C Carbon frames.

Today, the Chameleon name fits better than it ever has. Originally a hardtail capable of taking on any trail, it is now ready for long adventures and any dreary condition, with a graceful yet purposeful transition to 29" or 27.5"+ wheels. 

You can choose singlespeed for either size wheels, and you can switch from one wheel to the other by using interchangeable dropouts.


The Models

The 2020 Chameleon is broken down into 10 build kits. There are (ranked by price) four Aluminum models (AL) and six C Carbon models (C).

Models denoted with an 'D' indicate the most basic build kit, while the 'R' and 'S' build kits enjoy more upgrades. Models with indicated by a '+' indicate they are the 27.5"+ version.

2020 Santa Cruz V10 Downhill Mountain Bike

2020 Santa Cruz V10

"The most successful downhill bike in history."

Spec Highlights:  215mm shock / 203mm fork / 27.5" or 29" wheels / CC Carbon frame

In mountain bike downhill World Cup history, the bike that has most often been ridden to victory is the Santa Cruz V10. This model was engineered for speed but also rideability, and with this new version, Santa Cruz has found a way to add the option of 29" wheels to this already unstoppable bike.

Dirty Details

For better, more even damping on a trip, the shock rate was adjusted by Santa Cruz for better linearity. 

By improving cost-efficiency with a study of carbon lay-up and redesign of the frame, the manufacturer was able to redirect spending to make the V10 more durable and capable of seamlessly landing flat from large jumps. 

The bike is also made stronger and more rigid by greater-diameter sections of the front swingarm and triangle. 


The Models

The 2020 V10 is broken down into 4 build kits. There are (ranked by price) two SRAM GX CC Carbon models (S), and two SRAM X01 CC Carbon models (X01). Each of these can be purchased in 29" or 27.5" wheel versions.

The 27.5" models come in sizes Small, Medium, and Large. The 29" models come in sizes Medium, Large, and Extra Large.

2020 Santa Cruz Stigmata CX/gravel bike

2020 Santa Cruz Stigmata

Santa Cruz's Cyclocross / Gravel Bike

Spec Highlights: Hardtail / 700c wheel size.

The Stigmata is a cyclocross bike that was inspired by mountain bike engineering. 

The majority of bike manufacturers initially started using carbon to build road bikes. Instead, Santa Cruz, believing carbon to be incredibly versatile and durable, started implementing it in mountain bikes and then downhill models. The next step was to use it for gravel or cyclocross bikes, as indicated by the carbon Stigmata.

Dirty Details

The Stigmata is a revival of a discontinued bike with the same basic design but made from aluminum. In order to fit the drop bar, the original model had to use outdated brakes. This modern rendition takes advantage of component innovations with hydraulic disc brakes.

You are able to make the Stigmata what you want. You can fit it with slimmed-down tires for a road ride, and you can go with huge 41mm tires when you want to bring yourself up from messy trails a bit and improve your traction.

The bottom bracket, a PressFit 30, is brand-new and only available on the Stigmata. This piece is durable and strong enough to meet the strict, proven Santa Cruz standards while also being lightweight. It also is fully compatible with any type of road bike crank.


The Models

The 2020 Stigmata is broken down into 5 build kits, each with CC Carbon frames. All models are sold with 700c wheels. The SRAM Force AXS model is offered with 650b wheels as well as 700c.

Dirty Details

The frame is incredibly durable – important given its intended use. You will be able to keep riding it season after season, and you will get great speed since it is lightweight at under 5 pounds.

The rear dropouts, with an intelligent sliding design, make it possible to go singlespeed or geared. You can also utilize 15.2" chainstays, which are extremely short and promote incredible stability, due to the assymetricality of the yoke.

Which Carbon Fiber Frame is better for me, the Carbon C or Carbon CC?

We get asked this all the time, and if you want the best carbon technology, the lightest and stiffest that Santa Cruz produces, and you are racing or riding at the highest levels, you will appreciate the Carbon CC.  For the rest of us the Carbon C will be the choice as it rides amazing with some weight gain (and serious cost savings).
