Product Info

Like its namesake, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball C S Complete Mountain Bike is smooth and refined. How can a hardtail be smooth? Well, along with the vibration damping qualities of carbon fiber, this racy hardtail has a small diameter seat tube that flexes enough to soften the trail's bumps and bruises. It's a chatter-free ride that'll have you seeing more trail than you thought possible, especially on what looks--at first glance--like an XC racer. This one's a pedaler, but has the blood of a Santa Cruz so it's more than happy to spend a day adventuring.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Two Bottle Cage MountsIncluding option for a cargo cage mount under downtube.
