The mixologists at Santa Cruz have come up with something special for 29er fanboys—a potent Highball carbon cocktail, garnished with the performance-oriented R XC component package. Open the gate to high-speed stability, sprint-winning stiffness, and trail-taming compliance when you throw a leg over the refreshing, grin-inducing Highball.

  • One-piece layup, continuous carbon fiber, and extensive fiber compaction ensure a strong, capable, and abuse-ready carbon frame
  • Stiff Rock Shox Reba 29er RL features the flex-fighting Maxle quick-release thru-axle for steering precision, and a lock out for climbing efficiency
  • Hand laced, tensioned, and trued wheelset with Mavic TN719 rims, a bomber Shimano XT rear hub, and a WTB Superduty front hub ensures long-term durability
  • Shimano 30-speed Dyna-Sys drivetrain offers a wide range of 29er-friendly gear ratios for efficient pedaling
  • Powerful Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brakes provide consistent and powerful braking
