My impression of the 575 is that it leans more towards the trail/XC whereas the Nomad is more trail/freeride. Having ridden the 575 a bit, and owning the Nomad as well as spending 10 days on a Blut LT I'd say that the BLT is the closest SC offering to the 575. I don't know much about the trails in Hawaii though, if they aren't too freeridey I'd lean towards the 575, however if you will be doing DH type stuff go Nomad - I don't think the 575 swings that way, if you know what I mean...

The 575 is a great bike (I'm enjoying my new one) but I don't think anyone claims that it's DH/FR. It's one of the lightest frames for the amount of travel it as, so it's not really supposed to take huge amounts of abuse.
