The Stigmata is a cyclocross bike deserving of the Santa Cruz name.
The new Stigmata is versatile. It’ll fit 41mm-wide tires with room for mud, but handles nicely with skinny road tires for base miles. It’s also home to Santa Cruz’s first PressFit 30 bottom bracket. Santa Cruz didn’t make this decision lightly, but not only is PF30 capable of accommodating all road bike cranks, it allowed Santa Cruz to make the bike lighter while maintaining the strength and durability you expect.
By using a slightly-less-expensive carbon fibre, Santa Cruz were able to put performance within reach of more riders than ever before, lifting the race pace of World Cup athletes and privateers alike. The stiffness, durability, and strength are identical between the two materials, but the C-level carbon weighs in at about 280 grams more than the top-end, CC carbon.
