Highball 29 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Santa Cruz Highball 29 Carbon CC X01 Eagle complete mountain bike is built purely to be an advantage when the gate drops on your next cross-country race. Feather light, rocket fast, and durable enough to handle the most challenging races, this is a worthy machine for those chasing podiums and points all season long. The geometry chart makes the Highball's intent crystal clear, with a fairly steep 70. 5-degree head angle, choppy chainstays, and a short wheelbase making for delicate handling. In order to ensure that the handling is quick but not skittish, the Highball is built around a significant 56mm bottom bracket drop, which keeps the rider positioned "in" the bike. The result is a machine that's incredibly adept at fighting for the lead out of the gate, but retains the stability necessary for hard efforts toward the end of a race.

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. Of course, balancing these factors requires true mastery of carbon fiber, and the design team at Santa Cruz has proven time and time again th...
