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 XX1 AXS could easily roll right out of the bike shop and onto the starting line of a World Cup XC race. Santa Cruz specs the beautiful rainbow-colored SRAM AXS fully wireless shifting system on this top-tier build because of its outrageous performance and stunning good looks. Carbon fiber cranks, handlebar, seat post, and Reserve rims bring the weight down to nearly 20lbs. It’s even got a carbon fiber seat for good measure.
