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 introduces you to the CC carbon frame platform. The CC carbon frame is lighter and stiffer than the C platform. Santa Cruz achieves this by using higher quality carbon fiber laid up exactly where they need the bike to be stiff and strong, creating the leanest, meanest frame possible. Combine this with a full SRAM X01 drivetrain, FOX Step-Cast Performance Elite fork, and a carbon handlebar and seat post, and you have a 20.5lb trail rocket.
