Faster than a speeding bullet and more comfortable than a seat on the Orient Express, the new Santa Cruz Highball C has just set the standard by which all XC hardtails will be judged for a long time to come. Featuring Santa Cruz's in house developed C grade carbon, the new frame configuration was designed by the same team that brought you the incredible Santa Cruz Reserve wheel sets. Speed comes courtesy of a super stiff chainstay and bottom bracket, with oversized down tube and Boost 148mm rear end. When you put the power down the Highball C will snap to attention and rocket off the line. Comfort is thanks to a combination of clever low angle seatstays, a bridgeless junction with the seat tube and an elegant 27.2mm seat post diameter. But what does that all mean? The low angle stays keep the rear end tight for power, but leave space for the frame to give a little when the rider is seated. The bridgeless technology reduces trail chatter and provides the seatstays with a bit of give when you are putting in the miles. The 27.2 mm seatpost flexes naturally to make the whole ride more comfy. See, speed and comfort - it can be done. You can even pop a dropper post in at some point if you fancy. The rest of the Highball C also stands up to scrutiny. 100mm travel Fox forks perfectly complement the back end, giving just end movement to take the edge of the trail without wandering everywhere on climbs. 1x specific drivetrain technology gets you a wide range of gears from SRAM or Shimano, depending on the Highball C model you choose. It's the two 'big Ss' again for the brakes, with 160mm rotors reflecting the fact that when you do brake, this bike will be going at warp speed. DT/ Race Face 29er wheels (SRAM/WTB on the R model) ensure that babies head sized rocks become pebbles and Maxxis Aspen tyres are the fastest rolling thing this size of a giant cheese on Cooper's Hill (look it up!). Finishing kit on the Highball C is first rate and comes from the stables of Race Face, Cane Creek, Easton, ESI and WTB, with the XE model even getting a Santa Cruz carbon flat bar. All in the Santa Cruz Highball C sets a new, punishing standard for other bikes to meet, but why wait, just buy one and watch the competition eat your dust.
