Why We Like The Santa Cruz Highball Carbon C S Mountain Bike

Whether we're crushing weekend miles or toeing the line on race day, the Santa Cruz Highball gets us there with unparalleled speed and precision. This XC hardtail encourages us to go full gas against the clock with a lightweight frame that's built for speed but doesn't skimp out on comfort. That's because its 27.2mm seatpost and bridgeless seat stays provide a bit of compliance, ensuring we don't get beat to a pulp when we're settling into a strong cadence during long-distance efforts and endurance races. As we've seen year after year, Santa Cruz always manages to push the envelope in the design of their bikes, and this third-generation Highball Carbon 29er is no different. In fact, this Carbon S build weighs just over 23 pounds, which is impressive for a hardtail in this price range. Santa Cruz's composite engineers achieved this low weight through a meticulous application of carbon in zones critical to stiffness and structural integrity, trimming the bike down in all other areas for the utmost in weight savings.


The Highball Carbon C S build starts with the reliable SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain for reliable shifting in almost any weather conditions, from mud to dust. A RockShox SID SL fork delivers 100mm of bump-busting travel up front and comes stock with the OneLoc lockout lever so that we can focus on the climb ahead rather than fumbling for a dial on our fork. Race Face AR Offset 27 rims are laced up to time-tested DT Swiss 370 hubs for worry-free, fast-rolling performance, while a pair of SRAM Level TL brakes help us modulate our speed through high-tech sections of trail. Whether we're dipping our toe into the local XC race scene or just looking to add a dedicated XC slayer to our quiver, the Santa Cruz Highball Carbon C S Mountain Bike is ready to deliver flat-out speed.


*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
