Santa Cruz has created a new 29er XC bike for 2012 called Highball, which is a cross country cocktail of race-ready hardtail design and lightweight carbon. Constructed to offer maximum efficiency, this full-on race machine features a curved seat tube and short chainstays.
Aside from being razor-sharp, the Highball is agile yet surefooted. It was intended to build no compliance or rear end flex into its carbon fiber frame, which is incredibly light weighing in at only 1.11kg. It is available in gloss carbon/red and matte carbon/grey colors.
Feathery light weight is balanced by the 2012 Santa Cruz Highball Carbon 29er XC Bike with firmness, strength, and durability. The proprietary one-piece layup, dropouts and disc tabs are molded into the frame to make it even stronger, more durable, and more lightweight.
