Highball 27.5 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
When the buzzer goes off and the gate drops on your next cross-country race, you're already a mile ahead of the competition because you're sitting on the Santa Cruz Highball 27. 5 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. This hardtail XC machine is feather light, lightning fast, and tough enough to handle the most challenging races. The geometry chart shows us immediately what the Highball's all about, with a fairly steep 69. 5-degree head angle, choppy chainstays, and a short wheelbase making for delicate handling, the Highball fights for the lead right from the start while remaining stable enough to handle all-out efforts at the finish line.

To that end, the Highball also has a 27. 2in seat tube, which was chosen to open the option of a more flexible, and thus more comfortable, seatpost. It pairs well with the threaded bottom bracket, proving that sometimes the old designs are still the best. The Highball is built using Santa Cruz's top-tier CC carbon fiber construction. By using some of the finest, and strongest, raw materials available, Santa Cruz is able to make its CC level frames extremely lightweight, while maintaining outstanding impact resistance, exceptional stiffness, and just the right amount of finely tuned flex to cancel out trail chatter. The result is a frame that will hold up to years of hard riding, will provide a comfortable ride, and will do so at a very competitive weight. The X01 Reserve bu...
