We are pleased to announce that we are the Wagga and Southern NSW dealer for Santa Cruz Bikes !!!
Having previously sold Santa Cruz from 2007 to 2014, it was an easy decision to make this our premier MTB brand again…
Currently the most recognizable brand in the MTB world, Santa Cruz have established themselves as the boutique brand ridden by some of the best riders on the planet. With iconic designs across the different disciplines of dirt riding, this bicycle company is all about performance, durability and credibility.
What separates Santa Cruz from the hundreds of other bicycle brands out there has been their dedication to the development of their patented Virtual Pivot Point Suspension System (VPP).
VPP has been engineered across their range of suspension bikes to accurately give the greatest performing suspension platform regardless of whether you are a DH rider, Enduro / All Mountain slayer or an everyday trail rider.
Wheel size and geometry are obviously the other 2 key areas of making good bikes, and Santa Cruz just keep producing progressive frame designs to suit the different riders and wheel sizes out there. In a world where every MTB park and trail is getting more aggressive, Santa Cruz are at the forefront of good design to keep up with this, but also make sure the bikes handle and pedal correctly for intended use.
Santa Cruz’s impressive models include the following (please click the links)
- V10 Downhill
- Megatower and Nomad Enduro bikes
- Bronson and Hightower All Mountain bikes
- Tallboy and 5010 Trail bikes
- Blur and Highball XC bikes
- Chameleon Plus hardtail
- Stigmata Gravel bikes
The thing we have been most impressed with whilst building up the newest range of Santa Cruz bikes is the attention to finish on the carbon frames and the design for internal cables. Every brand is doing internal cables now, and quite frankly, many brands are making it way more complicated than it should be. Santa Cruz have made it as easy as possible with an internal carbon tube or “spine” that is actually part of the frame. It’s just one of those little things we notice in the workshop that makes a difference at service time. Added to this is the smart pivot and bolt system that uses grease nipples to keep the suspension hinge running smooth for the life of the bike… If you are looking for a boutique bike, this feature alone separates Santa Cruz from the pack of highly desirable products out there on the market.
Santa Cruz warranty is also fantastic with lifetime guarantee on frames, pivot bearings and carbon wheels (for original owners).
We also keep Reserve Carbon wheelsets in stock for upgrade during build phase of Santa Cruz bikes, or for outright purchase. These things are insanely strong and priced better than you think !!!
Like any good boutique offering Santa Cruz have different build options for their models to suit peoples budgets and tastes. Certainly we have noticed that compared to many offerings available is that each Santa Cruz build kit is smartly spec’d, meaning budget orientated options are not just “poverty packs” with nice frames, and components that do not match. So it doesn’t matter if your budget is $7000, or $15,000 the bike represents a balanced, quality item
In Australia, Santa Cruz are only offered in carbon frame options from “S” build and up. So please check out the Santa Cruz aussie website for more details. There is also some great info available to sink your teeth into before making the journey in store.
We look forward to talking customers through their ideal bike and spec, and with our range of bikes now on the floor, now is the time to get in and speak to us about the best bike you have owned so far !!!
