An Eagle drivetrain with SRAM X01 rear derailleur and GX shifter offers accurate shifting, and the 10-50 cassette offers plenty of gear range for steep technical climbs or cruising on pavement to get to the trailhead. The SRAM X1 carbon crankset features stiff pedaling and DUB standard for one of the lightest setups available. Braking power is supplied by Shimano XT M8020 quad-piston calipers, offering reliable braking power and tons of control. Syncros Revelstoke 2.0 tubeless-ready wheels create a strong foundation for crushing your local trails, and their boost spacing results in a stiffer, stronger wheel. Maxxis Rekon 2.8-inch tires provide a massive contact patch for extra traction, allowing you to push your limits and take a whole new approach to the trail. And when the descent is turning rowdy, get the seat out of the way in a hurry with the remote Fox Transfer dropper seatpost.
Scott Genius 920
$4,499.99
The Genius was put on this earth to get you up mountains with ease and to get you back down them in a flash. The Genius 920 features our TwinLoc Suspension System to always optimize your ride. With a SRAM Eagle drivetrain and Syncros components, the Genius 920 is action ready. Any Trail. Any Time. Evo-Lap Technology - With the proper selection of materials, eighty percent of the work to create a frame is done. But the remaining twenty percent requires most of our efforts. For this reason, our choice of the most advanced carbon fibers in the market is followed by intensive use of specific tools, like FEA (finite element analysis) software, to map out the carbon lay-up. - With FEA software, we can simulate different forces on a virtual model of the frame and adjust the frame construction accordingly. FEA software enables us to create complete virtual prototypes incorporating all the physical phenomena that exist in real-world environments. - With our Evo-Lap technology we model the frame to optimize the surface area, simulate tube structures with different ply orientations, observe the results of using different configurations, and test the stress distribution in different areas of the frame. Thanks to this extensive computer modeling, we’ve optimized the carbon layers in all the parts of our frame. When the parts were bonded together in the first prototypes, the result was a super light and compact frame without a sacrifice in the stiffness, comfort or impact resistance. The entire range benefited from our EvoLap technology. ICCR Cable Routing - On the Scale, Spark, Genius and Ransom, to provide a clean look and a functional solution for all the different control cable standards on the market, cable routing is fully internal and designed for full length cable housing. Routing the cables internally omits bulky external hardware and looks cleaner. The cables can endure a longer lifetime as they are protected within the frame. The entry points are machined alloy removable inserts that come along with the frame and can be chosen according to the setup of the bike. Assembling an electronic group or a dropper post will not be a problem and the look will always be clean-cut. SW Dropouts - On the Scale, Spark, Genius, Ransom and Gambler we’ve redesigned all the parts that can give us significant benefits in terms of performance and functionality. On the previous model the support of the dropout was a bulky additional part molded to the carbon chain stay. The new dropouts are designed to be integrated on the thru-axle system thanks to a hollow tubular design that allows a simple and light weight structure. Available for SRAM and Shimano DM derailleurs, this dropout increases the stiffness and avoids damage to the frame in case of impacts on the rear derailleur. Fox Nude TR Shock - On several Ransom and Genius models, you'll find the all new FOX NUDE TR EVOL. What the TR allows you to do is to select what sort of progression you would like in Descend mode: more linear, or more progressive. By flipping the Ramp Adjust Lever, you can decide how your shock behaves while descending. - A more linear shock gives a rider the same amount of support throughout a shock's travel. The suspension is supple throughout, and is "easier" to reach the end of the travel, or "bottom out." A more progressive shock will offer more support towards the end of travel, and is harder to bottom out. - These settings are really linked to riding speed. When it is wet, techy, or when impacts are small and riding tends to be slower, one might favor the more linear setting. When the conditions are dry and fast, or when bigger impacts are in play (jumps for instance), then the progressive mode is ideal. With the NUDE TR Evol, choosing and changing is easy. Key Features - Genius Carbon HMF-Alloy Frame - FOX 34 Float Performance 150mm Fork - FOX Nude TR EVOL, TwinLoc, 150mm - SRAM GX Eagle 12 Speed - Shimano SLX 4 Piston Disc Brakes - Syncros Revelstoke 2.0 TR Wheels - Maxxis Kevlar Tires - Syncros Dropper Post and Parts
Scott Genius 950
$2,999.99
Everything you love about the Genius, but with a lower price point. The Genius 950 features TwinLoc Suspension Technology to always optimize your ride, a SRAM Eagle drivetrain and Syncros components. Grab your bike, and get on the trail. One Frame Two Wheel Sizes - With our mountain bikes, we try to achieve ultimate versatility. These specific models can switch from 27.5" to 29" wheels with nothing more than the flip of a chip. No need to change the fork, all you need to do is flip a shock mount chip, change your wheels and off you go. The flip chip allows us to maintain a similar BB height when switching from one wheel size to the other which is key to keeping handling similar for both wheel sizes. With 27.5" wheels, you can run either 2.5", 2.6" or 2.8" tires. For the 29er, anywhere from 2.4"-2.6" is good to go. -Genius Trail Geometry - The Genius has always been a bike designed to go up as well as it went down, and vice versa. For 2018, we wanted to re-emphasize this point. We designed the Genius specifically in search of balance. Compared to the previous iteration, this one is slacker, has longer reach, shorter chainstays and a steeper seat angle. We really wanted geometry figures that would balance out the long front end for more stable descending. What we've ended up with is a bike that climbs like a bat out of hell and gets you down the mountain faster than you can say "dropping!" After years of testing different options, these numbers are a result of taking everything we want out of a bike for the trails we ride, and building it. Virtual 4Link Design - Our suspension kinematic brings perfect balance and control to the platform. Using our Virtual Four Link design, we have honed our suspension feel, pedaling and braking response to work with maximum efficiency and in harmony with our TwinLoc Suspension System. Our kinematic suspension curve gives supple small bump sensitivity and therefore exceptional traction characteristics, perfect support in the mid-stroke and a controlled deep stroke for predictable and comfortable bottom outs. Specific pivot placements ensures efficient pedaling that drives the bike forwards like a startled greyhound and neutral braking that strikes a perfect balance between rider comfort and control, chassis stability and rear wheel traction. From the XC racer, to the downhill enthusiast, the kinematic brings improvements and advantages in all areas and gives a solid fundamental basis for a bike for all riders and all conditions. 29" Wheels - Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 27.5” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger. - Best Roll-Over Performance - Carries Momentum - Maximum Traction surface - Best stability on easy trails - Lowest suspension stress - Great for larger frame sizes - Increase stability on long curve Key Features - Genius Alloy SL Frame - FOX 34 Float Performance 150mm Fork - FOX Float, TwinLoc, 150mm - SRAM NX Eagle 12-Speed - Shimano 4 Piston Disc Brakes - Syncros X-30S TR Rims - Maxxis Kevlar Tires - Syncros Dropper Post and Parts

Scott Spark 940
$3,399.99
The SCOTT Spark 940 has a super light Alloy frame. It features a custom FOX Nude Shock, Shimano 12-speed drivetrain and our TwinLoc Suspension System to always optimize your ride. It's lightweight, durable, affordable and retains all the great geometry and ride of its Carbon cousins. Asymmetetric Design - The Spark down tube shock and linkage are clearly asymmetric, when looking from the top of the bike. Carbon fibers achieve their full potential when used in smooth straight lines. Off setting the shock slightly to the left hand side of the bike gives a clean and continuous structure from the down tube through the shock mount to the main pivot. TwinLoc Suspension System - With TwinLoc, a rider can effectively control the complete frame, fork, and shock as a system. Why does this matter? A bike with 150mm of suspension travel, correctly set up, has more sag than a bike with 130mm. It's that extra travel that makes it more fun to ride and more capable on the descents, but the greater sag has an oversized effect on the bike's geometry and climbing performance. That's where TwinLoc matters. - TwinLoc helps manage the sag effect in several ways. Whereas most systems only increase low-speed compression in an effort to gain pedaling efficiency, TwinLoc allows us to not only change compression damping, but also to change the spring curve, dynamically altering the geometry of the bike. In Trail mode, the shock is not only firmer, but it has dynamically less travel. The bike sits higher, maintains a steep seat angle for those climbs, and becomes more agile. We also offer a third, full lockout mode for going up in the most efficient manner possible. - These unique settings optimize climbing geometry, even on longer travel bikes. We can eliminate the "long travel effect" that can rob your pedaling efficiency, but we're not robbing you of the full-fun, 150m travel when you point it downhill. From a race setting, to a lunch ride, to an after work trail shred, being able to switch from mode to mode depending on a trails profile at the push of a lever is paramount to riding faster and having a damned good time. 29" Wheels - Improved roll-over is the most noticeable attribute when it comes to 29” wheels. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to 27.5” wheels as tire contact to the ground is larger. KEY FEATURES - Spark Alloy SL Frame - FOX 34 Float Rhythm 120mm Fork - FOX Nude EVOL, 120mm, TwinLoc - Shimano XT-SLX 12 Speed - Shimano SLX Disc Brakes - Syncros Silverton 2.5 TR Wheels - Maxxis Rekon Kevlar Tires - Syncros Dropper Post and Parts

Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C R+
$3,999.99
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 pumptracks and logs into launches this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. 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 5010’s balance and poise takes riders from uncertain neophyte to fledging flyboy. While some bikes are good at going up and down, the 5010 is a bike that’s great at going up, down, left, right, triangle, square, up, up, up, and away! 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. We spec a variety of tire/rim combos, including 2.6-inch tires on Reserve 37 rims because we feel it’s the sweet spot of rock crawling traction and sportiness, but there’s room to run 2.8-inch tires, if that’s your thing. It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders, like Danny MacAskill, who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool. - Carbon C frame - Fox Rhythm 34 27.5 fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - WTB ST i35 TCS 2.0 27.5 Rims with SRAM hubs - 27.5 x 2.6 Maxxis tires - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - Race Face Aeffect dropper seatpost

Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C R+
$4,399.99
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.

Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C S+
$5,199.00 - $6,399.00
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.

What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. 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 Fox 36 F150 Performance fork and Fox Float Performance DPS shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. 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 Heckler 1.0 CC S
$8,399.99
Let The Heckling Begin In 1996 the Heckler was created as a rude interruption to mountain bike designs of the time. Its solid, full suspension build and aggressive swagger proved that a well-proportioned trail bike could elevate rider’s on-trail experiences. Today’s Heckler carries all that attitude forward into a new era. A full carbon frame, VPP suspension, and pedal-assist technology have merged to create something light and agile that amplifies the fun. Like all Santa Cruz bikes, the Heckler pedals well regardless of watts involved. The lower link VPP approach is tweaked to deliver slightly lower anti-squat versus a Bronson. This adds a touch more support and traction over rough stuff when pedaling seated - a major advantage of having a Shimano motor on your side. And, like every Santa Cruz bike, the Heckler is built for the rigors of true mountain biking. Shimano electronics were chosen for their refinement and reliability, while quality pivot hardware, easily replaceable radial bearings, and no-nonsense internal cabling were considered with a mechanics sanity in mind! Creating an e-MTB demanded careful consideration. For us, the Heckler’s potential to loft riders up to new heights is what gets us most excited. Trailblazers like Greg Williams and Danny MacAskill weren’t asking for a dumbed-down ride up. Or down. They wanted something to push their riding to new levels and held maneuverability sacrosanct as the new tech was introduced. The Heckler’s boundaries aren’t defined by distance, laps, or time. The boundaries in our head that say, “Don’t bother", “Turn back", "Impossible." Smashing these boundaries is what got us hooked on riding in the first place. Heckler’s not about taking things easy, it’s about making things possible. - FOX 36-E Float Performance, 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock - SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain - DT Swiss 370/Race Face ARC HD wheels with Maxxis Minion tires - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost
Santa Cruz Hightower C R
$4,399.99
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. While the Hightower R is on the more affordable side of the available Carbon C frame build kits, it's no slouch when it comes to satisfying your trail riding needs. You get a stiff RockShox Yari RC fork paired with a Fox Float Performance DPS shock for excellent shock absorption, and SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain shifts through the massive 12-speed gear range with ease. SRAM Guide R brakes and WTB ST i29 rims wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires put confidence in your fingertips on sketchy descents, while the Race Face Ride stem and Aeffect R bar with 35mm clamp give you the stiffness and leverage you want for precise maneuvers at speed.

Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon C R
$4,499.99
The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails. Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration — designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks — provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe, it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution — either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And, you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector, and ribbed chainstay protector. - Carbon C frame - RockShox Yari RC 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select rear shock - WTB ST i29 TCS 2.0 Rims with SRAM MTH hubs - Maxxis Assegai tires - 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - E13 TRS Race SL ISCG05 chainguide
