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 CC X01 Reserve is a compilation of carbon goodness. The CC carbon frame is a beautiful starting point, to which you can add carbon bars, a carbon seat post, carbon cranks, and Santa Cruz’s epic Reserve carbon rims.
Why all this carbon fiber? Because carbon fiber can flex while remaining stiff and transferring power. Think about standing up and sprinting vs. riding over roots and chatter. Carbon makes both situations more efficient, so you get the most out of every ride.
