Santa Cruz Highball Carbon C R Complete Bike



The lightweight Santa Cruz Highball is designed for XC racing; anything from eliminators to sprints to 24-hour suffer fests. On paper it's a whip-cracking alternative to the Blur; the racer's hardtail for high intensity assaults. But settle down for a long haul and it's immediately clear the Highball is at home in a range of cross country environments. The low-angle seat stays join the seat tube below the top tube junction. This new placement works in tandem with a bridgeless seat stay design to curb trail chatter. Built around a 27.2mm-diameter seat post, the whole package combines to take the "hard" out of hardtail riding. Meticulous application of carbon in only the most needed areas allows Santa Cruz to tune a really light frame that retains torsional stiffness for high-torque pedal pushers and strength for those braving the sketchy lines. This is what compliance without compromise looks like. The new Highball is a half-pound lighter than before, yet manages to maintain all the rider favorites of threaded BB reliability, internally routed cables, and 3 water bottle mounts. All backed up with a genuine lifetime frame and carbon wheel warranty. Complemented by a multitude of build options to suit your aspiration level, the Highball's got everything you need to go forth and conquer. Lifetime warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
