The Nomad was created for those rides where you need maximum travel; whether that’s for the gnarliest of trails, or exploring uncharted territory, you know the Nomad has got your back. Coming fully equipped with a 170mm Fox 38 across the range, paired with 170mm of coil compatible rear suspension, this is as close as you’ll get to a DH bike that you actually want to pedal.
A 77 degree seat tube angle gives a central seated climbing position which will come in handy as you winch your way to the top of the next mountain top.
So, if you’re looking for a bike that can take on anything you can throw at it; be that full on DH tracks or exposed, barely rideable hiking paths down Munros, the Nomad could be the bike for you.
