Santa Cruz Stigmata2 Carbon CC ENVE Kit
Santa Cruz do things a bit backwards. While most companies first introduced carbon fibre on their road bikes, they made mountain bikes from it to prove its strength and versatility as a material. Then they made a downhill bike. And now they’ve made a carbon Stigmata—a 'cross, gravel, just go ride bike.
They developed the new Stigmata simply because they missed the old Stigmata! They felt there was a lot they could do with carbon that they were unable to do with the original aluminum model. At the same time, hydraulic disc brakes for road bikes were becoming a reality, meaning that they wouldn’t have to put up with ancient braking technology to get their drop bar on. 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 their first PressFit 30 bottom bracket. They didn’t make this decision lightly, but not only is PF30 capable of accommodating all road bike cranks, it allowed them to make the bike lighter while maintaining the strength and durability you expect from Santa Cruz.
This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as our C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed us to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.
