Santa Cruz created the Superlight Mountain Bike for cross country race domination—plain and simple. This isn’t some cruise-around-with-friends build. This is the bike you saddle up when you want to leave everyone else in the dust even on the longest hills. The Fox Float R shock includes custom compression damping to eliminate pedal bob when you’re hammering up hill, and there are no useless links and pivots with a clever marketing program. The single pivot is a proven suspension design that delivers more grins per mile than bikes costing twice as much. Santa Cruz also specs out a high-end component package to keep you shifting smooth, braking well, and going strong start to finish.

  • Solid Single pivot with 100mm of travel smoothes out the most demanding cross country terrain
  • Fox F100 fork and Float R shock provide simple set up and reliable performance
  • Elevated chain stays reduce unwanted chain slap
  • Asymmetric Chain stays make a stiff rear triangle for optimum suspension action
  • Many years of cross-country refinement backed by Santa Cruz�s impeccable build quality

Great Ride!

This is a great XC bike for those of you that like the climb as well as the down. This bikes climbs over obstacles like a billy goat and bashes through the obstacles on the way down. Make sure you pay attention to the air pressure in the shocks when you get it to be certain the shocks are adjusted to your size and riding style. Tear it up!

So far a great bike. Comes with decent components and comes assembled. This summer just got a lot better

Is the bike comes fully assembled?

Climbs like a goat!

The superlight is a great bike! One of my biggest concerns was it's ability to climb given the simple single pivot design. It laid those concerns to rest. Simplicity and performance in one bike.

I would also point out that Huck n Roll did a great job. the packing of the bike was excellent. Everything work great with one exception - air in the front brake line. I just took it to a local shop to have it addressed. Hull n Roll reimbursed me for the cost w/o any hassle. Would buy from them again in a heart-beat.

Do either of the shocks have a lock-out...

Do either of the shocks have a lock-out feature?

Responded on

Nope. But I've got the same suspension setup, and I never miss it - if the pressure and rebound is set right (i.e. you're not bouncing around), I think having some active suspension helps with the uphills as well as the downhills. It lets you pedal over rougher terrain and focus on your pedal stroke, rather than worrying about absorbing bumps.

Responded on

No lock-out on the rear shock but according to the salespeople the front fork is the RLC model with lock-out.

Responded on

Neither of the shocks have a lock out option for this build. Sorry about that.

Responded on

The fork is an 'R' so it's rebound and preload adjustable only. It is NOT an RLC. The rear shock has built in compression that filters out pedal-induced bobbing.

Pretty sweet bike

I purchased this bike as my first XC bike, and I have to say that I have not been disappointed. I'm 6'2" 185 lbs and purchased the X-Large... and it seems like the right fit. I received it completely built, but found the bike wasn't tuned completely properly, so it did require a few adjustments -- the front fork was loose, there was hardly any pressure in the shocks, and the tires were somewhat flat. Once making those minor adjustments, this rides like a dream.

Responded on

.No comment or mea culpa from the Huck n Roll staff?

Responded on

Check how Steve Carlson handled this above. I am sure that these guys can't adjust to changes in altitude with the tires and fork pressuress. Give'em a shout, they'll take care of any cost incurred.

I keep reading about rider weight limits...

I keep reading about rider weight limits for the superlight. Is this bike good for a guy, 220lbs and runs into everything?

Responded on

I would get the Heckler, it will be more stout for you and will take more abuse.

Responded on

Are you sure you're not thinking about the Blur XC? That has specific weight limits (because of the tradeoffs inherent to the lighter frame). I hadn't heard of any rider weight limits with the Superlight.

So how superlight is it? I'm comparing it...

So how superlight is it? I'm comparing it to it's big brother with 6" of travel at 29lbs, so how light is this one with 4" of travel and a lighter frame? Also I wonder which bike would be best for me for total x-country up and down hills the reviews for the Hackeler sound great, who has ideas about the super light it sound like a great bike.

Responded on

The heckler is going to be happier at speed where the SL is a climber. The difference is as much, or more, in the geometry than in weight or travel.
