The Santa Cruz Stigmata CC Force AXS Gravel Bike is the perfect machine for riders who want to ride fast and freely for longer periods without fatigue down the road less traveled. The CC Carbon frame construction is lightweight and fast but brings durability that we can trust as we escape the paved roads, while the fork features a suspension-corrected geometry for 40mm gravel suspension forks. With a progressive mountain bike geometry, off-road performance is optimized for comfort and stability with a slack head tube angle and a long reach designed around the 70mm stem. With the 1x SRAM Force AXS groupset, we are sure to be in the proper gear exactly when we need to be, thanks to the accurate and reliable shifting performance between the 10-44T cassette and 40T chainring. For controlled shifting that is easy on the hands, SRAM designed the Force AXS shifters with a slimmer hood shape and a hidden reach adjustment to keep us comfortable and we change gears or hit the brakes. Rolling fast on 700c wheels with 45c Maxxis Rambler tires, which feature a gravel-specific tread pattern and low rolling resistance, our gravel adventures are bound to be fast, fun, and controlled.
