The Nomad's reputation is based on the fact that he always pushes the limits of the drivable, while still remaining a capable all-rounder. The latest version has more suspension travel and a more extreme geometry and is still universally applicable.
In the fourth generation there was a radical change in the damper mounting. The system is a short-stroke version of the V10 - this means the finest response behaviour on small strokes, good support in the medium travel range and a progression that you normally only know from DH bikes. To get the best out of the new system, the geometry has also been adjusted. The Nomad has become longer and flatter to ensure maximum control and safety downhill. At the same time, the Nomad is still a trail bike. It is amazingly easy to pedal and handles long alpine tours and all-day missions without batting an eye - a fact supported by its steep seat angle and the standard 170 mm telescopic support.
