Santa Cruz Highball

The Highball is more capable than a pure endurance bike and more composed than more XC race-bikes. It has evolved to be ridden harder for longer. With a fine-tuned carbon layup process and the low-angle, bridgeless seatstays join the seat tube below the top tube junction to minimise chatter on the trails. 

With a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the entire package makes hard-tail riding so much more fun. It has the mindset of a race bike but it’s prepared for any adventure thrown at it. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded bottom bracket and the standard lifetime warranty, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far.
