Same great bike, new smaller wheels.

The Highball carbon is now available in 27.5”.  You pick. We tried to keep the handling characteristics the same between the two bikes, and let the wheel size’s traits shine through. One difference –the 27.5” version has a size small, while the 29er does not, and that the 29er has an XXL, while the 27.5” does not. Since we had a mostly-blank slate for the 27.5-inch bike, we spent a lot of time getting everything dialed. We found that the 69-degree head angle strikes the right balance of quick handling and stability, and won’t wander on you when you’re climbing. That, combined with the short chainstays and smaller wheels, makes the bike playful, without being as gravity-oriented as the Chameleon.

The carbon layup changed a bit, too, particularly in the seat stays and seat tube, and we reduced the seat post size to 27.2mm, which adds some compliance you’ll appreciate when you’re 80 miles in to a 100-mile race. All the cables route internally, now, but that doesn’t mean multiple obscenity-laden nights in the garage to get it set up. Everything has either a tunnel or an easy-to-route cable guide to make it as hassle-free as possible. This CC-level carbon Highball has been trimmed, optimized, and strengthened to provide the very best performance we could engineer into a hardtail, and does so at a fighting weight that's about 280 grams less than the C-level Highball.

You're reviewing: Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC - 27.5 Gloss Aqua & Black - 2016 Mountain Bike

Santa Cruz Bicycles was founded in 1993 in a space the size of a single car garage in the Seabright Cannery, in Santa Cruz California. The first bike, called the Tazmon, was a single-pivot dual suspension bike that rattled establishment sensibilities and helped develop Santa Cruz's then ethos of "simply advanced." That bike was the cornerstone for a brand that was founded on the notion of doing things their own way in order to build the best. Santa Cruz have been rattling sensibilities ever since.

Santa Cruz now manufacture 12 models of mountain bikes and a full women's Juliana range, made from either carbon fiber or aluminium, from hardtails to 8.5" travel downhill machines. They offer suspension designs ranging from the simple efficiency of our single pivot designs to the cutting edge performance found in their unique VPP system. These are available with a wide range of component and suspension options to choose from. Each and every Santa Cruz bike is the distillation of their desire to ride and build the highest performance mountain bikes in the world. No more, no less.
