Highball Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
When Santa Cruz announced the revamping of the Highball we were eager to see what there was in store for the featherweight cross-country machine. The idea of lightening the already feathery bike gave us worries of fragile, noodly frames that bend under pressure, but we're pleased to see the domination and power that comes from the Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. It demonstrates composure in terrain that has most hardtails feeling twitchy and unreliable, thanks in part to its ultra-stiff carbon layup, and updated geometry. But don't be alarmed, we won't try to convince you that the Highball is an all-mountain slayer, it still retains its ultra-stiff cross-country prowess for podium-level domination, and blasting up climbs to earn KOM's on the daily. Traditional beliefs would tell you that a feathery cross-country bike would be fragile, unnerving, and overly twitchy for all but the most experienced of pilots and professional racers. We're here to say you can have your cake and eat it too, at least when you're racing on the Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC XO1 Eagle Reserve Complete Mountain Bike. Now don't get us wrong, we're not going to tell you this newest generation of Highball is going to be an all-terrain quiver killer or anything of that nature, but it will radically shift your preconceived notions of what a stupidly lightweight, ultra-stiff cross-country bike is capable of as you fly past slow climbers and dissect technical XC courses with high levels of confidence. As we've seen year after year, Santa Cruz always manages to push the envelope in the design of their bikes and this third-generation Highball Carbon 29er is no different, weighing a half pound lighter than previous versions in their high-end Carbon CC lay-up. You read that right, the newest version of the Highball Carbon CC 29er is a half-pound, or some 226 grams lighter, dropping the frame's overall weight to just over two pounds, which is absurd when you think ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
