Built to cover ground as quickly as possible, the Santa Cruz Highball loves to go full throttle at all times as you zip across your local trails and racecourses. This purebred XC bike proves its worth when you're racing against the clock and every split-second is absolutely crucial, shaving time from your climbs, which is ultimately where cross-country races are won and lost.

Because the Highball had the reputation as being one of the stiffest bikes in Santa Cruz's line, the engineers had a few tricks up their sleeves in muting trail chatter and excess vibration from this third-gen model. Low-angle seat stays meet the seat tube just below the top tube junction, plus there's a bridgeless seat stay to absorb incoming vibration over rugged racecourses. Santa Cruz then uses a 27. 2-millimeter seat post diameter to impart even more compliance, so you don't feel every terrain inconsistency in your lower back for days afterward.
