This gravel bike is the epitome of adventure, boasting a range of features that ensure a smooth, powerful, and comfortable ride across varied terrain. From its lightweight CC carbon frame to the high-performance Sram Rival XPLR AXS drivetrain, the Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS offers an experience like no other. Let us delve into the key components that make this gravel bike so exceptional.
At the heart of the Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS lies its CC carbon frame. Crafted with precision and expertise, the carbon construction strikes an ideal balance between weight, stiffness, and durability. The result is a frame that responds eagerly to the rider's inputs while dampening road vibrations for a more comfortable experience. Whether navigating rocky terrains or cruising along smooth paths, this frame ensures confidence-inspiring stability.
The Sram Rival XPLR AXS drivetrain is a true game-changer in gravel biking. With its wide gear range and smooth, electronic shifting, tackling any gradient becomes an effortless task. The AXS technology provides a wireless connection between the shifter and rear derailleur, eliminating the need for cumbersome cables and ensuring precise and quick gear changes. This system not only enhances performance but also minimizes maintenance, leaving riders to focus on the joy of the journey.
To complement the exceptional frame and drivetrain, the Santa Cruz Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS features a Santa Cruz Carbon Gravel fork. This high-quality fork is designed to absorb shocks and impacts, enabling riders to glide over rough surfaces with ease. Its stiffness and responsiveness instill confidence in the bike's handling, even during high-speed descents or technical sections.
A vital component of any gravel bike is its wheelset, and Santa Cruz has spared no expense in equipping the Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS with the Easton ARC Offset 25 700c Tubeless wheelset. These wheels strike an impressive balance between weight and strength, making them versatile enough to handle gravel trails, pavement, and everything in between. The tubeless setup not only reduces the risk of punctures but also allows riders to run lower tire pressures for increased traction and comfort.
The integration of DT Swiss 370 Hubs ensures smooth and reliable rolling performance. Known for their quality and precision engineering, these hubs contribute to the bike's overall efficiency and responsiveness. They play a significant role in the bike's ability to transfer power efficiently, enabling riders to maintain momentum on various surfaces.
Braking is a crucial aspect of gravel biking, and the Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS is equipped with Sram Rival hydraulic disc brakes. These brakes provide consistent and powerful stopping performance, even in adverse weather conditions. Whether navigating through mud or dust, riders can trust the brakes to deliver reliable stopping power, ensuring a safe and controlled ride.
The Santa Cruz Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS doesn't compromise on its tires either. It comes fitted with Maxxis Rambler 700 x 45c tires with the Double Down (DC) casing and EXO sidewalls. These gravel-specific tires strike an ideal balance between low rolling resistance and exceptional traction. The Tubeless Ready (TR) design allows riders to convert to tubeless for added puncture protection and improved ride quality.
For optimal comfort during long rides, Santa Cruz has included the WTB Silverado Medium CroMo Saddle. This saddle offers a supportive platform for the rider's sit bones and features a medium width for a range of body types. Its durable CroMo rails ensure longevity, making it an excellent choice for adventurous gravel enthusiasts.
Lastly, the SRAM DUB, 68mm Road Wide bottom bracket plays a crucial role in maintaining the drivetrain's smoothness and efficiency. The wide bottom bracket design enhances stiffness, contributing to better power transfer, which is especially beneficial during sprints or when powering up steep climbs.
In summary, the Santa Cruz Stigmata 4 Rival 1X AXS is a marvel of gravel biking engineering. With its CC carbon frame, Sram Rival XPLR AXS drivetrain, Santa Cruz Carbon Gravel fork, Easton ARC Offset 25 700c Tubeless wheelset, DT Swiss 370 Hubs, Sram Rival hydraulic disc brakes, Maxxis Rambler 700 x 45c tires, WTB Silverado Medium CroMo Saddle, and SRAM DUB, 68mm Road Wide bottom bracket, it offers a perfect amalgamation of lightweight design, top-notch components, and advanced technology to provide riders with an unforgettable and exhilarating gravel biking experience.
