The Stigmata is Back!
“If Ferrari made an off-road vehicle, that’s what it’d be like to ride the Santa Cruz Stigmata” – The Radavist. Santa Cruz redesigned and re-released the Stigmata because of the possibilities of using Carbon fibre this time round. The result is a super stiff, lightweight, Gravel, Cross, “Just go ride” machine. With the added benefits of hydraulic discs as well and thru axle both front and back, the Stigmata is a truly fun, agile and stiff bike to ride.
Santa Cruz have proved how versatile and strong their Carbon Fibre mountain bikes are and have applied the same knowledge and technology to the new Cross/Gravel Stigmata Carbon CC.
Full Carbon CC layup gives the Stigmata great stiffness and strength whilst being light enough to chuck over your shoulder when things get serious. It can also be run with up to 41mm tyre widths for extra grip.
Internally routed frame design keeps it looking tidy and stops cables rubbing on either the stealthy matte black or gloss orange paint jobs, 142x12mm rear axle spacing and bolt through fork keep it stiff and Santa Cruz have introduced a PF30 (Press Fit 30) bottom bracket standard to allow more compatibility with road cranks.
