Santa Cruz V10 X01 Carbon CC
$8,599.99 - $10,699.99
It takes a special breed to ride with the speed and consequence of downhill mountain biking. Gnarled, exposed roots and loose, square-edged rocks mix with quickly changing dirt conditions over the course of a few minutes, while gravity increasingly challenges your constitution as you race toward the finish. This is the world of the Santa Cruz V10. With 216mm/8.5-inches of travel built into a stiff and durable carbon fiber frame, this DH dream mobs everything on the trail. Two adjustable geometry settings allow you to dial-in the perfect ride, and 27.5-inch wheels provide strength and increased rollover clearance for faster times on the track. The V10 Carbon CC X01 build includes a Fox 40 Float RC2 fork, Race Face SIXC Carbon 165mm cranks, and SRAM Guide RSC brakes paired to Avid Centerline rotors to create a podium-level DH bike that's eager to please.
Santa Cruz Hightower XX1 Carbon CC 27+
$8,099.99 - $10,099.99
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the wagon-wheel paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. In the case of the 27+ version, this means plus-size 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires for extra float and traction on sketchy terrain. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or change to 29ers for extra speed and precision. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose, thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a Fox 36 150mm fork, Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima shock, and SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain for uncompromising performance no matter where you ride. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight.
Santa Cruz Tallboy XX1 Carbon CC 27+
$7,999.99 - $9,999.99
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy 27+ Carbon CC XX1 is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle combined with plush 2.8-inch tires and 130mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or 29-inch thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy CC XX1+, Santa Cruz jumps to Eagle territory with SRAM's 1 x 12-speed drivetrain. A Fox 34 Float Factory 130mm fork and Float Factory DPS Kashima rear shock are plenty capable, and wide rims create a generous tire profile for ripping through loose, sketchy trail.
Santa Cruz Nomad XX1 Carbon CC
$8,199.99 - $9,399.99
Santa Cruz's Nomad Carbon CC XX1 reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going they've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference. Full shock compatibility creates challenges when trying to cram everything into the precious bottom bracket area. But the continued evolution of Santa Cruz carbon tech means they're able to create a svelte, strong, swingarm/front triangle combo that's as much art as it is engineering. Santa Cruz even managed to squeeze in a flip-chip feature on the lower link too. Think of the high setting as "regular", the way the bike's mostly meant to be ridden, and the low setting as being closer to full on DH status. To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The XX1 build steps-up performance with a SRAM Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.
Santa Cruz Bronson XX1 Carbon CC
$8,099.99 - $9,299.99
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox 36 F150 fork and Fox Float Factory DPX Kashima shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. The XX1 build takes you into the 12-speed realm of SRAM Eagle power transmission with the XX1 Eagle carbon cranks and XX1 Eagle derailleur. For the Bronson CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight.
Santa Cruz Hightower 29 XX1 Carbon CC
$8,099.99 - $9,299.99
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Santa Cruz didn't stop with simple updates in frame design to up this big-wheeler's appeal, though. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 29er wheelset or change to 27.5+ for extra float and traction in sketchy conditions. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. The Hightower Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a Fox 36 140mm fork, Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima shock, and a 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain for uncompromising performance no matter where you ride. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight.
Santa Cruz Hightower LT XX1 Carbon CC
$8,099.99 - $9,299.99
Santa Cruz's Hightower LT Carbon CC XX1 is made to go fast, give you a bigger margin of error, and take on the biggest mountains in the world. With a whopping 150mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 66.4-degree head angle, the Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s truly race-bred, its design the result of the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents while putting you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. The increased travel means the reach is slightly (7mm) shorter than the standard Hightower, the head angle a half-degree slacker, and the seat angle a half-degree slacker, as well. The rear triangle retains the dual upright design, but adds a post-mount rear brake. The Hightower LT Carbon CC XX1 comes equipped with a 150mm-travel Fox 36 Factory fork, Fox Float Factory DPX Kashima shock and 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package.
Santa Cruz 5010 XX1 Carbon CC
$7,999.99 - $9,199.99
Let the trail be your guide on the 5010 Carbon CC from Santa Cruz. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. The XX1 build features pinnacle components from SRAM, including a 1 x 12-speed Eagle drivetrain for the ultimate in mountain bike simplicity. A Fox Float Factory Kashima shock and Fox 34 Float Factory fork enable confidence when ripping through tight, rocky singletrack. For the 5010 CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight by half a pound, and with the optioned Santa Cruz carbon wheelset you're looking at a truly featherweight mountain bike experience.
Santa Cruz Tallboy 29 XX1 Carbon CC
$7,999.99 - $9,199.99
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle and 120mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 29er wheelset or 27.5+ thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy CC XX1, Santa Cruz jumps to Eagle territory with SRAM's 1x12 drivetrain. A Fox 34 Float Factory fork and Float Factory DPS Kashima rear shock keep the tires where they belong, and an optioned Santa Cruz Reserve carbon wheelset ups the bling factor while keeping overall weight down. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frames, but shaves off weight in key areas of the frame.
Santa Cruz Hightower X01 Carbon CC 27+
$6,799.00 - $8,799.99
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the wagon-wheel paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards.

Santa Cruz Nomad 4.0 CC X01 Reserve 27.5
$8,399.99
The Nomad's reputation is built on consistently pushing the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails. With each iteration Santa Cruz nudges the travel and geometry further towards the outer limits, and each time riders are surprised at just how completely rideable the end result remains. The fourth generation design sees a dramatic shift to the lower-link mounted shock configuration. This is the first time that learnings from years of V10 development have translated across to one of their trail bikes. The shock rate is now almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike. To keep the gravity vibe going we've ensured the Nomad can run both standard metric coil shocks and lighter air units to suit any preference.

To handle all this new-found capability the geometry has been adapted too. It's longer and lower-slung than ever to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything. The whole package is crowned with a raft of subtle yet essential details. Bolt-on downtube protectors and shuttle guards act as a helmet for your frame—a replaceable front line against abuse. An integrated shock fender has also been added to keep crud out of the suspension.

Santa Cruz 5010 2.1 CC X01 Reserve
$7,999.99
A laser sharp, agile backcountry trail whip that corners on rails and loves to pop and jib, the 5010 is a bike handler's dream. As at home on a backcountry mission with Steve Peat as it is hopping fences with Danny MacAskill, the 130mm-travel 5010 sports a short chainstay length and low BB height for a uniquely playful character with an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 67-degree head tube angle, and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes. Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know.
Santa Cruz 5010 X01 Carbon CC
$6,799.99 - $7,999.99

Santa Cruz Bronson 2.1 CC X01 Reserve 27.5
$7,999.99
When Santa Cruz introduced Bronson, it took the market by storm, redefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat. The most visible upgrade is the completely new VPP® link arrangement. The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts. Meanwhile the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke. Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk. The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor.
Santa Cruz Bronson X01 Carbon CC

The X01 build takes you into the 12-speed realm of SRAM Eagle power transmission with the X1 Eagle carbon cranks and X01 Eagle derailleur. For the Bronson CC, Santa Cruz used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to reduce frame weight by 280 grams.

Santa Cruz Hightower CC X01 27+
$6,799.99
Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon. Running either proven 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world. So the big question, 27.5+ or 29? 29 If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29” wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to the new Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands. 27.5+ When conditions get loose and the traction just ain’t there, you’ll want to reach for bigger tires. 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rise above the fray, rail the soft spots, and carry momentum where standard tires bog down. No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a “High/Low” setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height*. Hightower’s 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration. Meanwhile, 150mm of seat dropper, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details. 135mm of VPP travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of linkage arrangement and swingarm design we reserve for the heaviest hitters in our model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there. *Please note: 140mm fork comes standard on the 29” kits, and is exchanged for a 150mm version on the 27+ builds to keep the 67° head angle consistent.

Santa Cruz Highball 29 X01 Carbon CC
$4,799.99 - $5,999.99
When it's time to blast through miles of singletrack, nothing beats the quick, lively feel of Santa Cruz's Highball hardtail. Santa Cruz has been at it for years with the Highball, and with modernized geometry this version rips better than ever. In keeping with today's preference for running a short stem and wide handlebar, Santa Cruz lengthened the front end to preserve an efficient pedaling position, and they trimmed the rear to increase agility. The result is a cross country trail slayer that's easy to lift over obstacles and whip through tight turns, ultimately making you a faster rider. Internal cable routing with hassle-free guides keeps the Carbon CC frame looking smart, and a slimmer seatpost offers a touch more compliance that you'll appreciate on epic rides. The Highball 29 CC X01 takes you to a new level of riding with SRAM's Eagle X01 drivetrain and Level TLM brakes. A RockShox SID RLC 100mm fork shaves weight and offers precise tuning capability for the ultimate in XC bump absorption.

Forward momentum is produced through SRAM's Descendant crankset and GX 7-speed transmission, while SRAM Code R hydraulic disc brakes utilize the strength of four-piston calipers for precise speed control. A 35mm bar/stem interface adds torsional strength for uncompromising handling, leaving the most important piece of this winning combo up to you.
Santa Cruz Bronson XE Carbon C
$5,699.99
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox 36 F150 Performance Elite fork and Fox Float Performance Elite DPX shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
Santa Cruz Hightower LT XE Carbon C
$5,699.99
Santa Cruz's Hightower LT Carbon C XE is made to go fast, give you a bigger margin of error, and take on the biggest mountains in the world. With a whopping 150mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 66.4-degree head angle, the Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s truly race-bred, its design the result of the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents while putting you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. The increased travel means the reach is slightly (7mm) shorter than the standard Hightower, the head angle a half-degree slacker, and the seat angle a half-degree slacker, as well. The rear triangle retains the dual upright design, but adds a post-mount rear brake. The Hightower LT Carbon C XE comes equipped with a 150mm-travel Fox 36 Float fork, Fox Float Performance shock and Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package.
