29-Inch Wheel (29ers)
Nothing beats the acceleration of a hardtail mountain bike and the Santa Cruz Highball C is purpose-built for high-intensity XC pursuits. On this iteration, Santa Cruz shaved half a pound from the weight of the frame and redesigned the seat stay/top tube junction to give you more comfort over the long haul without sacrificing speed. With three water bottle mounts, threaded BB reliability, and internally routed cables, the only thing you'll be concerned about is when to make the turn back home. The Highball S/C build ups the ante with SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and level TL brakes to give you a great mix of performance and value. A remote-actuated Fox 32 Rhythm fork guides you through rough terrain while the Race Face/DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis Aspen tires do their part when it's time to grip and rip. Saddle up and experience the rocket-like feel only a carbon hardtail can deliver.
Today's XC courses are more technical than ever and the Santa Cruz Blur is built to excel from start to finish. The Blur combines 100mm of predictable and responsive VPP rear travel with a 100mm fork and 69-degree headtube angle to give you punchy acceleration and confidence to make your move when others balk at sketchy terrain. SRAM's GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain has a huge gear range for producing max power, and Level TL brakes paired with 160mm rotors let you carry more speed into turns thanks to precise lever feel and powerful grip. Ground control comes from a sensitive Fox 32 Performance Step-cast fork with remote lockout and Float Performance DPS shock, which harmonize with the ultra-efficient suspension design to ensure your effort translates to podium-worthy times no matter what the course brings. Finishing this Blur S/C build is a Race Face/DT Swiss wheelset wrapped in race-ready Maxxis Aspen tires, giving you second-nature control on your all-out push to the finish.

Stretching its legs to a full 150mm of VPP travel, the Hightower LT was created to the meet demands of the Santa Cruz Enduro World Series race team and designed for maximum speed in big terrain. Matched with a 150mm fork, the 29in-wheeled LT is traveled-up and pared-down for pure performance. The Hightower LT Carbon C S build features a great selection of components designed for the rigors of trail use. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and Code R brakes offer seamless shifting and precise braking control, and a tubeless-ready Race Face wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Minion tires puts down meaty traction for dependable grip at speed. For even better acceleration and response upgrade to the Santa Cruz Reserve 30 Carbon wheelset and crush your personal bests everywhere you ride. Suspension travel is controlled by a Fox 36 fork and Fox Float DPS shock, offering a stiff chassis with big-hit chops. A Race Face cockpit, RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost, and WTB Silverado Pro saddle finish the build. From the Chilean Andes to the French Alps, across the pond to the Coastal Range of British Columbia and back to the seashore of Finale Ligure, this is the race-ready weapon that SC's enduro team choose for every contest on their globe-trotting quest for podiums (and good times).
As the name implies, the Santa Cruz Chameleon is a bike that can change to match its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to husky bikepacking mule to anything in between. The Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around mountain bike use. Choose your Chameleon wisely. The Chameleon D grants you the go-anywhere rollover and high speed of 29-inch Maxxis tires, wrapped around WTB rims with the strength to let you get rowdy, as Chameleon riders are apt to do. To help keep your trajectory on track, a 120mm RockShox Revelation fork soaks up the chop and precisely steers where you point it, thanks to rigid Torque Cap fork-hub interface. SRAM’s NX Eagle drivetrain and Level brakes perfectly complement one another, providing a wide 11-speed gear range to get you anywhere on the mountain, with the braking power to make sure you get back in one piece. Race Face and WTB outfit your control points, with lightweight control that opens terrain and encourages adventure.
