SANTA CRUZ STIGMATA
£2099 (FRAME & FORK)
We’ve been running Santa Cruz’s sublime flat-out fast cyclo-cross bike as everything from a 15lb road KOM killer, to a 17.5lb take anywhere 40mm-tyred tank for over two years. It only takes a quick switch of the cassette for the Force 1 groupset to deliver the ideal drive for every type of ride from chain gang to Three Peaks CX race.
Low weight, multi-mission chassis with muscular power delivery and precision handling
Premium Californian-designed carbon isn’t cheap
