Up Close...

The Highball is Santz Cruz's flagship carbon hardtail race thoroughbred, and a dark horse in XC versatility.

More capable than a pure endurance bike, more composed than most XC race-rigs, the Highball has evolved to be easier to ride harder for longer. Santa Cruz have fine-tuned the carbon layup process and the low-angle, bridgeless seatstays join the seat tube below the top tube junction in order to curb trail chatter.

Built around a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package combines to take the “hard” out of hardtail riding. It has the mindset of a race bike but it’s prepared for more. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far.

Santa Cruz Highball In the press...

We have a race whip that went on a diet and while coming back seemingly meaner at 19 pounds, it also gently softens blows from repeated trail punches. It comes built to win but can dress for trail success... It takes modern geometry cues, incorporates a longer reach approach and a lean-it-over ride style while not losing any of the carbon-soled clan. It makes a strong argument for the non-plus-size hardtail while decidedly falling into the performance-first category... The revised Highball is an excellent bike for those who want more than a race-only hardtail without compromising cross country performance and is priced accordingly.

bikemag | March 2018

What I will say is that this visually stunning frame with its slightly more relaxed angles didn’t scare the shit out of me anytime I went down something steeper than a sidewalk curb. And that’s not the way I remember hardtails of years past. Instead, the new Highball has a touch of friskiness to go along with its hyper-aggressive climbing abilities. And while I can’t say I felt any flex from the seatpost of seatstays, I also didn’t have any kidney issues at the end of our ride, which included one extended teeth rattler that otherwise would have had my eyes rolling into the back of my head it was so bumpy.
