There are still those times and places where the best way to light the fuse and blow everyone else into the weeds is by riding a hardtail. 29-inch wheels have revived the venerable double diamond design, and by mixing the smooth rolling hoops with a feathery 2.45-pound carbon fiber frame, Santa Cruz has come up with a potent race weapon.The handling of these big wheels has been beefed up with a tapered head tube up front and 142x12mm rear axle. Anyone who complains about a bad day climbing while riding this bike needs to find another sport. The Santa Cruz Highball is insanely light, razor sharp, and very nimble - yet surefooted, stiff as a plank, and designed to do two things: race and win.

Frame: Proprietary one-piece carbon fiber lay-up. Dropouts and disc tabs are molded directly into the frame to keep it lighter, stronger and stiffer. Tapered head tube, ultra-short chainstays and curved seat tube.
Frame Weight (Med): 2.45 lbs.

Chains
Show Details
The SRAM CN-PCXX1 Chain 11-speed represents the latest breakthrough in a long line of precise, light-weight chains from SRAM. It's signed to deliver the greatest strength and reliability to a drivetrain that doesn't have to make compromises for front shifts. The XX1 chain has 4 times the elongation (wear) resistance to our 10-speed chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength, and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The XX1 chain lasts longer and is just as strong. (118 link)
Brake Levers, Shifters

Weight: 105 g.

The XX1 trigger shifter employs much of the same technology seen in SRAM's XX shifter. Carbon-fiber is used on the lever and cover for a lightweight and durable construction that'll last longer than your frame. Getting inside the shifter, you can expect a precise and dependable actuation mile-after-mile, through any terrain. And though the wide range of gears may seem like they'll cause undue stress on the shifting system, the single shifter employees the new X-Actuation to keep shifting precise and dependable across the cassette. Like the Exact-Actuation ratio that SRAM developed for its 10-speed road group, SRAM has deviated from its bread-and-butter, 1:1 pull ratio. Now, XX1 uses SRAM's new cable-pull ratio system to deliver a more uniform and accurate derailleur movement, with less applied force required from the user. What sets SRAM apart is its dedication to the user and their demands. Along these lines, the multi-adjustable trigger shifter lets you dial in your shifter to your exact reach specifications. This system is incredibly helpful for cyclists with smaller or larger hands. The shifter also comes with a MatchMaker X compatible clamp. This creates easier accessibility and a clean aesthetic by placing your XLoc suspension controls securely next to your shifter. Our favorite result from the use of a single shifter, is that your bars now have more options for where you can mount your remote seatpost control.

  • SRAM 1X11 X-AcTuATION™ for precise and dependable 11-speed performance
  • Rolling Thunder ball bearing

Weight: 220 g.
11-spd compatible

With its "horizontal parallelogram" design and pulley offset, the SRAM XX1 11-speed Rear Derailleur keeps the chain gap constant across all 11 gears, providing fast, precise shifts. By limiting all movement to the horizontal axis, X-HORIZON technology is faster, reducing shift force and eliminating ghost shifting. ROLLER BEARING clutch technology reduces bounce and chain slap. Type 2 clutch and Cage Lock technologies makes wheel removal and installation easier than ever before. Just as on the chainring, X-Sync tooth design of pulley wheels active holds onto chain. Paired with the XX1 shifter, the X-HORIZON RD forms the backbone of X-Actuation technology for unbelievably smooth shifting action. Compatible only with XX1 Grip shift or Trigger Shifter.
Brakes
Show Details
Weight: 288 g. (Front or Rear)

The SRAM XX Disc Brake uses an all-new, two-piece forged aluminum caliper for greater stiffness and performance in a light-weight package. Two oversized pistons give you more stopping power with less lever pull for easy one-finger braking. An updated TaperBore design incorporates a new air-trap feature, which prevents potentially trapped air from entering the system, resulting in ridiculously smooth control you can count on. Super light XX carbon fiber lever blade with forged magnesium body, titanium hardware, pad contact and reach adjustments. Front and rear sold separately. Rotors are not included.

Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!

    While other systems rely on side loading the bearings to eliminate play (which causes premature bearing wear), the SRAM GXP bottom bracket system is different. The GXP system positions the left side bearing between the spindle and the left crankarm, while allowing the drive-side bearing to float axially on the spindle, thereby eliminating the necessity to side-load bearings during adjustment. GXP's design allows greater variation in BB shell alignment, maintaining precision and performance regardless of thread and construction irregularities in the frame. Installation is simple: once it is tightened to the proper specifications you are ready to roll with a worry free bottom bracket employing two bicycle specific cartridge bearings and eight seals for a smooth and long lasting ride.
