Santa Cruz logo

Santa Cruz have a reputation for making some of the finest carbon fiber mountain bikes money can buy. It's well deserved. Their VPP Suspension system is neat, highly effective and tuneable allowing a different character to be designed into each model in the range, it's easy to look after too. Whilst their top of the line CC range has no expense spared, the same technology trickles down into the rest of the range at a more attainable price point. You're also covered by a lifetime warranty for complete piece of mind.
