Santa Cruz Bikes

Santa Cruz builds premium quality frames with an unmistakable design. The Californian brand was founded in 1993 in a garage-size warehouse space in the old Seabright Cannery in Santa Cruz. The Tazmon, a single pivot suspension bike was the company’s first model. Many more have followed, setting new trends and disrupting the bike industry regularly with innovative manufacturing techniques for their high-end frames. No wonder that Santa Cruz Bicycles offers a lifetime warranty on all its frames.

Lifetime Frame & Bearing Warranty

Santa Cruz Bicycles will repair or replace at its option any frame it determines to be defective. The warranty will be in effect for lifetime of the original owner. Warranties do not cover custom finishes.

Santa Cruz Bicycles pivot bearings are warranted for life to the original owner of the bike.

Santa Cruz carbon handlebars are warranted for a period of five years from the date of purchase. 

Santa Cruz Bicycles will make replacement frame parts available to the original owner at a minimal charge in the event of a crash or other non-warranty situation for the life of the bike.

We'll do everything we can to get you back to riding as fast as possible. 

Santa Cruz Syndicate Team

When thinking about Santa Cruz, their premier Downhill team, Syndicate, also comes to mind. Remarkably, when a rider joins, they are immediately successful. In 2006, Syndicates’ inaugural year, Steve Peat rocked it and won the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Two years later, Greg Minnaar joined the team and left his mark by winning the same series. To top it off, Josh Bryceland, aka ‘Ratboy’, won the UCI Junior Downhill World Championships that same year which happened to be his first year with the Syndicate. This goes to show, that when you combine three world-class racers with world-class bikes you get a team that rattles sensibilities just like Santa Cruz has been doing since 1994.
