At just 2060g this is Santa Cruz’s lightest ever 100mm full suspension frame. The insanely efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and exceptionally stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got more thrust on demand than SpaceX.
There are similarities between this bike and World Cup-winning bikes that you wouldn’t imagine. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture, which paired with a one-piece carbon front end, delivers a lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre.
Confidence-inspiring geometry, combined with capable components allow you to take those risky inside lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon.
