Product Description

2018 Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball 27.5 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame

 

Purebred for cross-country domination, the Santa Cruz Highball 27.5 Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame is a streamlined race rocket with its feathery-light, exceptionally stiff Carbon CC frame that transfers every watt of available energy into blistering acceleration. This particular Highball benefits from its 27.5-inch wheels, which are great for smaller riders seeking increased stand-over clearance and easier handling through tight courses. In fact, the 27.5-inch Highball comes in a size small, whereas the 29-inch version is only available in size medium and up.

For the competitive racer, Santa Cruz's Carbon CC frame shaves precious weight from the lower priced Carbon C frame—all without sacrificing the legendary strength and stiffness you've come to love from Santa Cruz carbon frames. You'll find the Carbon CC frame saves approximately 280 grams from the lower-priced Carbon C frame, which is rather significant seeing the extremes competitive racers go to save every last gram. It retains the same carbon lay-up as the 2017 model, which underwent subtle changes in the seat stays and seat tube. Moreover, the Highball's 27.2-millimeter seat post enhances compliance, so it's not as harsh when you're riding over unruly terrain for grueling distances.

Although it's rolling on smaller wheels than its 29er sibling, the Highball 27.5in retains the same snappy acceleration and agile handling of the larger model, due in part to its 69-degree head tube angle in conjunction with ultra-short 16.7-inch chainstays. Numbers aside, it's dialed to keep you agile and balanced through tight cross-country courses while maximizing uphill efficiency where time is often lost on race day. Plus, it's never too high strung on the descent, meaning you won't feel unnerving when the trail plunges downhill at speed.

Paying attention to all the right details, the Highball 27.5 Carbon CC frame forgoes the pesky creaking of press-fit bottom brackets for the dependability of a BSA threaded bottom bracket. Internal cable routing presents hassle-free set-up when you're wrenching on your bike in the garage late at night. There's plenty of room to clear two full-sized bottles inside the frame, so you'll have proper hydration on race day. Other particular details include full carbon dropouts and disc mounts, as well as a 142-millimeter thru-axle for precise tracking of the rear wheel.
