Why We Like The Santa Cruz Highball CC Mountain Bike Frame

Hardtails aren't dead, and they are, in fact, the king of lightweight bikes and are sought after when we need a bike that emphasizes speed and efficiency over capability. From weekend flow trail rides to racing in our local XC series, the Santa Cruz Highball is one of our favorite cross-country bikes to throw a leg over when we need a bike specializing in speed and efficiency. The Highball is a cross-country race hardtail with 29-inch wheels, aggressive geometry, and a lightweight frame. The 29-inch wheels preserve our forward momentum and easily roll over roots and rocks. The seat stays help to eliminate vibrations and trail shock from transferring through the rigid rear end by joining the seat tube below the junction where the top tube meets, mitigating the energy transfer. With a 67-degree headtube angle, we can handle steeper descents while maintaining precise handling on the flats, and a 73.5-degree seat tube angle puts us in a centered position over the bottom bracket to give us an efficient and powerful climbing position. The Highball has integrated downtube and chainstay protectors to protect against rock strikes and chain slaps, and the front triangle can hold three water bottles so we can leave the hydration pack at home.

*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. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
