This CC-level carbon Highball has been trimmed, optimized, and strengthened to provide the very best performance they could engineer into a hardtail, and does so at a fighting weight that's about 280 grams less than the C-level Highball.

Since Santa Cruz had a mostly-blank slate for the 27.5-inch bike, they spent a lot of time getting everything dialed. They found that the 69-degree head angle strikes the right balance of quick handling and stability, and won’t wander on you when you’re climbing. That, combined with the short chainstays and smaller wheels, makes the bike playful, without being as gravity-oriented as the Chameleon.

The carbon layup changed a bit, too, particularly in the seat stays and seat tube, and they reduced the seat post size to 27.2mm, which adds some compliance you’ll appreciate when you’re 80 miles in to a 100-mile race. All the cables route internally, now, but that doesn’t mean multiple obscenity-laden nights in the garage to get it set up. Everything has either a tunnel or an easy-to-route cable guide to make it as hassle-free as possible.
