Product Info

Fast, quick, or extremely rapid: you must choose all three. The Santa Cruz Bicycles Highball X01/GX AXS Reserve Complete Mountain Bike is the kind of bike that'll bring out the critics, the engineers, and the know-it-alls. Everyone's got an opinion on whether all this tech is "worth it." Well, yeah, that's life. This is the fastest mountain bike in Santa Cruz's lineup, a carbon wonder with full AXS and Reserve XC carbon wheels. No question about that. You won't know unless you go, and this one goes! This build pairs X01 components with a GX cassette and chain.

Product Details


Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

Santa Cruz Reserve 28|XC CarbonThe Reserve 28|XC is the race-ready culmination of everything Santa Cruz has learned from years at the highest levels of competition, and it delivers on a heap of promises. At a genre blurring 1300g for a complete wheelset (with no rider weight limit and a market-defining lifetime warranty), the 28|XC features a new wider and lower rim profile to increase strength and lateral rigidity, while adding vertical compliance for enhanced traction. The new rim shape also eases tubeless tire installation and improves tire bead retention at lower pressure. The Reserve 28|XC is really the go-to wheelset for the modern XC bike: Sturdy and strong enough for a rowdy XC ride, but light and fast enough for a jaunt on the World Cup XC circuit.

Industry Nine 1/1 HubsConfident and capable of cleaning the A-line yet budget friendly to save up for a season of bucket list rides, the 1/1 hub stays true to the performance heritage of Industry Nine. Featuring a dual phased-pawl drive mechanism accomplishing 90 POE and 4° engagement by way of a six pawl driver and 45 tooth drivering, 1/1 takes a no-nonsense approach in welcoming riders to Industry Nine.

Maxxis Rekon Race TiresThe Maxxis Rekon Race is a semi-slick XC race tire that features the lowest profile tread in Maxxis's XC line. It is a great choice for XC trails and short track racing.

Additional Features

RockShox AXS Xplr Dropper PostNo hoses. No routing. No energy wasted. Not a single thing in the way of the experience.
