this bike has been on the top of my wish list since
I tested one in Folsom, California last year. I drooled
over it's looks, but when I sat on it, . . . marshmallows
bike that won the European DH Championships this year.
No, Bruno did not have a special $25,000 factory custom
Super 8, this is the exact same bike you can buy. Put
our DH kit on one of these frames and go racing! The
new Super 8 features 8.5" rear travel, adjustable
ride height, shock timing, wheelbase, and accepts up
to 9" travel forks!
The new Santa Cruz Super 8 can be configured
with 24" or 26" wheels. Comes with a 14mm
thru-axle rear hub with 160mm spacing (zero dish wheel).
This is the first ever to be put in production and comes
stock with the Super 8. Frame weighs 11 lbs.
Cruz has been making this thing since 97. It was modified
from their old downhill bike the Heckler.
Today it is beefier and better. Check out Kranked IV
for some good riding video with the Super 8, but I'm
telling you, go down and sit on one. Just go down and
sit on one. Marshmallows baby.
