Santa Cruz modified the 2008 Jackal, making it lighter by 1.7lbs but made sure that the frame retains its tough quality to make sure you can move at better heights and spins.
The new and better design was with the valuable input from Syndicate riders Jamie Goldman and Kirt Voreis. This resulted to a frame that gives you a better standover and with adjustable dropouts which you can set for singlespeed or derailleur.
The Jackal has a 1-1/8” head tube and a 30.9mm seat tube which has slack of 68.7 degrees for head and 71.7 degrees for the seat angles. The bottom bracket shell has a width of 73mm and height of 12.8”. Weighing at 4.8lbs, the Santa Cruz Jackal comes in colors of Black, Lime, Liquid Blue, Red, White, or Yellow.
Retail price ranges from $570-$680 depending on dealer prices.
