Santa Cruz Stigmata
If you’re looking for a lightweight gravel bike that’s as comfortable on epic exploration rides as it is on cyclocross start lines, the Santa Cruz Stigmata has you covered. Built on Santa Cruz’s signature stiff and light Carbon CC compound frame, the Stigmata promises versatile performance with no compromises.
Redesigned from previous iterations, the Stigmata features key geometry updates including a higher bottom bracket for added clearance and fewer pedal strikes, slightly higher stack for a more upright position to tackle downhills with speed, and increased tire clearance so you can custom kit your Stigmata to meet the conditions you want to go.
The Stigmata is designed to optimize versatility at no cost to performance. Increased tire clearance lets you run up to 45mm 700c or 2.1” 650 tires, or narrower for pavement and ‘gravel lite’. The frame is dropper post compatible and has three bottle cage mounts so you can always have one onboard, even if you use a frame bag. Front and rear fender mounts are built in for protection from the elements.
Whether on gravel, pavement, or singletrack, the Stimata charges the climbs and offers stiff but comfortable descending thanks to vibration muting compliance in the rear triangle. Designed with the farthest reaching destinations in mind, where will it take you?
