Highball Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Not something to ride gingerly, the Santa Cruz Highball Carbon S Mountain Bike prefers you go full throttle at all times while racing and blasting around your local forest network. This purebred XC bike proves its worth when you're racing against the clock and every split-second is absolutely crucial, shaving time from your climbs, which is ultimately where cross-country races are won and lost.

Low-angle seat stays meet the seat tube just below the top tube junction, plus there's a bridgeless seat stay to absorb incoming vibration over rugged race courses. Santa Cruz then uses a 27. 2-millimeter seat post diameter to impart even more compliance, so you don't feel every terrain inconsistency in your lower back for days afterward.
