There is no modern hardtail more iconic or sought after than the Santa Cruz Highball 29er and, for 2017, it makes a welcome return in aluminium, making it more available to those on a wider range of budgets. While the excellent, hydroformed aluminium frame keeps all of the lust worthy characteristics of the carbon models and there is hardly any weight penalty, the build kits on the Santa Cruz Highball 2017 also keep things bang up to date. SRAM 1x11 speed gearing gives super close gear shifting and 'tackle any hill' capacity. 100mm of up front travel is XC race-tastic, whichever Rock Shox fork (Recon or Reba) graces the front end and ultra-modern geometry means that handling is more confidence inspiring than ever. The Highball's super fast rolling Maxxis Crossmark tyres (fully tubeless set up - no one else does that as standard) are shod onto lightweight WTB STP i19 TCS rims for speed over any trail. When the going gets steep, the fantastic new SRAM Level brakes will keep things nicely under control and a sensibly wide Race Face bar adds to the sense of stability. The Highball is even available in a small size in case you want to treat one of the kids or a shorter friend. For trail speed or XC race credentials, without emptying your bank out entirely, the brand new aluminium Santa Cruz Highball 29 2017 is an absolutely awesome bike which will be seen on podiums, and round trail centres everywhere, very soon.

For some independent opinions on the Highball, check out MTBR's reader forum. The August 3rd review by Gecko2006 should be all you need to convince you to get a brand new Highball all of your own.
