Hybrid 29er for cruising the Mosier "Twin Tunnels" Trail

With its superlight ALUXX SLR-grade aluminum frame and a lightweight yet smooth-handling composite fork, this quick and efficient go-anywhere bike is ready for adventure.

Santa Cruz 5010 A R Kit 2018 Red.jpg

Santa Cruz 5010 Trail Bike

5010 is built to serve the most technical backcountry missions. 130mm of VPP® (Virtual Pivot Point) travel produces a shorter chainstay length and lower BB height compared to the 5010’s bigger-travel brethren.

This creates a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, rocky climbs. And when it’s time to head home, playtime becomes a riot. The new 5010 has a 67-degree head tube angle, more aggressive than before, and the longer top tube welcomes the use of shorter stems for more precise handling and greater confidence on rapid descents.

Santa Cruz Bronson A R Kit 2018 Black.jpg

Santa Cruz Bronson Enduro Bike

Bronson, is edefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat.

Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk.  The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor.

Santa Cruz Tallboy A R 29er 2019 Rust Orange.jpg

Santa Cruz Tallboy 29er XC/Trail Bike

In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy’s renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29 configuration will have you bagging on e-bikes at every turn.

A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy’s playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and bring the Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range.

Specialized Stumpjumper Comp 27.5 Trail Bike

When you need to blend ruggedness, efficiency, and downright nimbleness into one trail bike, it's pretty damn hard to beat the confident construction of an alloy frame like the Stumpjumper Comp Alloy 27.5.

It features an M5 alloy construction that's lightweight, durable, and plenty stiff and compliant, while SRAM's most durable one-by components have been hand-selected to ensure that you get the most performance over rugged terrain possible. Furthering this, you'll also find a FOX FLOAT Rhythm fork with 150mm of travel up front, a custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT3 at the rear, and powerful SRAM Guide R brakes.

Don't get us wrong—carbon is awesome. But when it comes to maintaining peace of mind while you're getting rowdy, nothing compares to the confidence of our alloy Stumpjumper Comp 29/6Fattie. It's light, rugged, and packed with all the spec and travel you need to run it wide open out on the trail.

To make things even better, the Stumpy's design also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels and 6Fattie wheels (not included), allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand.
