Ratboy explores the limits of the 150mm steed

From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. This bike now emulates the Nomad with a more linear, more capable suspension but it maintains its agility. And it separates itself from the 5010 with big hit ability. Bryceland demonstrates what this bike can do.

Bryceland is all over the roomy cockpit to separate his body from the bike on high speed tech maneuvers.

150mm VPP® rear travel

– Lower-link mounted shock
– Linearly-progressive leverage ratio
– It’s still VPP® – two short, counter-rotating links that connect the front and rear triangle to make a stout frame. Easily serviceable, reliable, lifetime bearing replacement
– VPP® is a versatile design that allows us to fine-tune suspension to suit the character of any model of bicycle, from XC to downhill, and everything in-between. The upper- and lower-link VPP gives us even more options when designing the suspension to suit the intended purpose of a bicycle. Like all Santa Cruz VPP bikes, the mantra is squish good, pedal good, no breaky.
