The Highball is Santa Cruz's flagship carbon hardtail race thoroughbred, and a dark horse in XC versatility. More capable than a pure endurance bike, and more composed than most XC race-rigs, the Highball has evolved to be easier to ride harder for longer. Santa Cruz fine-tuned the carbon layup process around the seat stays, giving it a bridgeless design that curbs trail chatter. Coupled with a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package takes the “hard” out of hardtail riding. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far.
Santa Cruz went all-in with the Highball Carbon CC XX1. You get SRAM's wide-range XX1 drivetrain, Level Ultimate brakes, and a Fox 32 Factory Step Cast fork for performance that complements your drive to be the best. Santa Cruz Reserve 25 Carbon rims paired to legendary DT Swiss 240 hubs provide the best in lightweight durability and are shod with Maxxis Aspen tires for predictable traction and low rolling resistance. An SBC XC Carbon Flat bar, Syntace LiteForce stem, and Syntace P6 Carbon HiFlex seatpost topped with a WTB Silverado Carbon saddle finish this race-ready cross-country rig, giving you everything you need to blaze the way to a podium finish.
