Extremely light and sharp, the 2011 Highball Carbon 29er is the ideal bike for riders who are looking for race and championship. Highball is a very agile, stiff and surefooted hard tail 29er bike. Aside from its 2.45 pounds carbon frame, the Highball also features a standard bottom bracket shell and seat post.

With 17.3 inches, the chain stays of the bike are nicely short. Keeping its stiffness is the traditional 1.5 external lower bearing, and a 1 1/8th internal upper, which also keeps stack height and a favorably low handle bar height.

Curved for wheel slamming capability, the long and straight seat tube allows for an enhanced seat post insertion. The 2011 Highball Carbon 29er is also designed to be very light, stiff, and strong, thanks to the dropouts and disc tabs molded into frame during an excellent one piece layup process.
