Santa Cruz Bicycles, a manufactuerer of high end mountain bikes was founded in 1993, in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz, California.
The first bike, the Tazmon, was a single-pivot dual suspension bike that defied established sensibilities. At the time full-suspension bikes were far from the norm, and a do-it-all bike with rear suspension was considered highly irregular.
But for the founder, skateboarding legend, Rob Roskopp, he could see that full suspension was an innovation whose time had come. And ever since Santa Cruz has continued to build bikes that allow riders to go further, faster, and higher, for longer.
the company acquired the patents for their Virtual Pivot Point (aka "VPP") from Outland Bikes around 1999.
Currently the company manufactures around a dozen models of high performance mountain bikes for true cycling enthusiasts. Made of carbon fiber and aluminum. Their bikes are cover everything from hardtails to 8.5” travel downhill bikes, suited to a wide range of mountain biking activities.
In 2013, a single model, the "Juliana" was spun off as a stand-alone brand and range of mountain bikes for women, designed by and named for Juli Furtado.
Santa Cruz products highlights include the following models:
