The Santa Cruz Highball is an XC race machine designed to transfer every watt of power you put out directly to the ground. 

The Highball is wildly efficient, but that doesn’t mean it’s harsh. Santa Cruz went with dropped seat stays to offer more compliance in the rear, and a 27.2mm seat post to take the edge off of those all-day epics. The Highball is a no-frills race machine that can tackle anything from short-track events to century rides. 

The Highball C R demonstrates how affordable and capable a hardtail can be. SRAM’s 12-speed 1X NX drivetrain gives you a 500% gear range, Race Face takes care of the handlebar, stem, and seat post, and Maxxis Aspen tires connect you to the ground. Starting with a carbon frame encourages you to upgrade parts as you go along, or to just save some cash and get out there and enjoy the simplicity of riding a premium hardtail.
