Grande ouverte, de l'aube au crépuscule.

Le Highball est notre fleuron en matière de vélo semi-rigide en carbone pensé pour les compétitions de cross-country : un vrai pur-sang également capable d’être polyvalent, contre toute attente.

Plus facile qu’un pur vélo d’endurance, plus tolérant que la plupart des montures de cross-country, le Highball a évolué et devient plus accessible, plus robuste et plus confortable. Nous avons perfectionné le processus de superposition des fibres de carbone tandis que les haubans rejoignent le tube de selle, sans pont, en dessous de la jonction avec le tube supérieur pour absorber davantage de vibrations.

Conçu autour d’une tige de selle de 27,2 mm de diamètre, l’ensemble se révèle si harmonieux qu’il fait oublier le mot « rigide » dans l’expression « semi-rigide ». Il a l’état d’esprit d’un vélo de compétition mais sait faire bien d’autres choses. Avec la possibilité de monter trois porte-bidons, un boîtier de pédalier fileté sur lequel on peut compter et, bien entendu, la garantie à vie caractéristique des vélos Santa Cruz, c’est le genre de vélo qui vous emmènera très loin…

Support technique

Can I run this bike with 27.5 plus wheels?

No. We specifically designed this bike around 29in tires and there isn't enough clearance for a plus setup.

If you're interested in a 29er that can run 27.5-plus tires, check out the Tallboy.

How does Highball spec compare to other bikes in your range?

You can compare builds and bikes right from our Bike Builder on this page. Just scroll up to the Bike Builder and click the button with two opposing arrows (next to FIND A DEALER and below the weight). Add the Highball, click Keep Browsing, and then click through to the product page of a bike you’d like to compare. Add that bike using the same method and then you’ll be able to see the builds side-by-side.

What are the options for seat posts, bottles, and chain guides?

The Highball was designed to allow for setups that accommodate long rides or trail riding.

You can carry three water bottles. One on the seat tube for easy access , one on the downtubeand one on the bottom of the downtube as a spare.
It's dropper post compatible and the options are plentiful. Just make sure you get a 27.2 diameter post.
Running a chain guide is an option. We recommend an excellent one from OneUp.

What kind of riding can I do with the Highball?

The Highball is designed for XC racing; anything from eliminators to sprints to 24-hour sufferfests.

Where can I demo the newest model of this bike?

We’ll have the newest version available for demo at the Factory in Santa Cruz, California. We also suggest contacting your local Santa Cruz retailer to check for demo availability in your area.
