Nothing beats the acceleration of a hardtail mountain bike and the Santa Cruz Highball C is purpose-built for intense XC pursuits. On this iteration, Santa Cruz shaved half a pound from the weight of the frame and redesigned the seat stay/top tube junction to give you more comfort over the long haul without sacrificing speed. With three water bottle mounts, threaded BB reliability, and internally routed cables, the only thing you'll be concerned about is when to make the turn back home. The Highball XE/C build offers rock-solid performance with a Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain paired with XT brakes. A remote-actuated Fox 32 Performance fork guides you through rough terrain while the Race Face/DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis Aspen tires do their part when it's time to grip and rip. Saddle up and experience the rocket-like feel only a carbon hardtail can deliver.
