The 2020 Santa Cruz Stigmata CC sees a substantial overhaul compared to years past, one that highlights the gravelification of the brand’s only drop bar bicycle.
The reintroduced stigmata featured internally routed disc brakes, generous tire clearance, and thru axles that made their cross bike more well-rounded. This newest iteration of the Stigmata and Quincy uses a significantly revised carbon layup based off of the Highball. No idea what weights look like, but we suspect that like all Santa Cruz models, the Stigmata is geared toward strength rather than being the lightest bike on the block.
A bit more versatility was built into the bike this time around. As its come out to be a gravel bike instead of a cross bike that wants to do more, the Stigmata now features three bottle cage mounts plus a frame bag mount on the top tube, fender mounts to keep tire spray off of you and your friends, and massive tire clearance – up to a 700 x 45c or 27.5 x 2.1” MTB kind of clearance.
Other requisite “gravelification” changes include revised geometry, more bottom bracket drop for greater stability through imperfect surfaces, ~10 mm more stack across all sizes, and internal cable routing for a dropper seatpost. This makes the new Stigmata and Quincy ready to be what you want, where you want it.
