Santa Cruz Reserve 22 700c Rim
$599.00
CLASSICS INSPIRED, GRAVEL TESTED. Roubaix. Flanders. E3. These races test wheels to their absolute limit. The best solution came in the form of a tough, box-section aluminum rim, still raced by some teams today. We took inspiration from that shape and engineered a gravel rim with the compliance you want over harsh surfaces, but the lateral stiffness to make every effort count.
Santa Cruz Reserve 25 29-inch Rim
$599.00
FOR THE PINNERS. Raced on the XC World Cup circuit and at midweek races the world over, the Reserve 25 was designed for human-powered speed. It's our lightest mountain rim at 390g and builds up to a sub-1600g wheelset but doesn't skimp on toughness. There's no rider weight limit, and we offer the same lifetime warranty that we do on all our wheels.
Santa Cruz Reserve 25 650B Rim
$599.00
TURN UP THE VOLUME. Riding a rigid bike on washboard roads might look great on Instagram, but 80 miles in, you'll be grateful for every bit of cushion you can get. The Reserve 25 is designed for gravel bikes and supports a 40-55mm 650B tire, delivering extra traction and a bit more cushion than a 700c wheel, thanks to the additional air volume. The hookless design belies its mountain bike provenance, and J-bend spokes and external nipples make it ideal for long tours where replacement and repair isn't so much a matter of if but when.
Santa Cruz Reserve 27 29-inch Rim
$599.00
RIDE MORE The Reserve 27 is designed for the way most people ride—a bit of up, a bit of down, and a lot of miles in between. The narrower width pairs well with a wide range of tires, from 2.0 to 2.5, depending on your preference for tire profile. It's a bit lighter than the Reserve 30, and the beads are slightly thinner. It's tough, but designed for less all-out aggressive riding than the 30 or the DH.
Santa Cruz Reserve 30 29-inch Rim
$599.00
EWS TESTED. The EWS is strict—break certain parts and you DNF. The rule's meant to encourage sensible management of equipment, but it's also tipped the balance in favor of toughness and reliability. Enter the Reserve 30. Its 30mm internal width supports a 2.3-2.5" tire, and the thick rim beads stand up to the abuse of tough, rocky, steep tracks ridden at elite speed. While DH rims see greater single impacts, nothing beats the full weekend of regular abuse that an EWS race dishes out, to say nothing of the infamous 'Anti-Grip' and the rocks buried within the moondust in the Andes of Chile.
Santa Cruz Reserve 37 27.5-inch Rim
$599.00
UNLOCK WIDTH As the plus-tire fad faded and tires returned to less balloon-y dimensions, there was a whistle-stop at around a 2.6" tire that turned out to ride really nicely, delivering the traction and confidence that plus-tire advocates had claimed for the real behemoths, but also performed like the aggressive trail tires we love. The Reserve 37 is designed specifically for tires between 2.5 and 2.8 inches in width, and is 37mm wide internally to support the larger casing these tires have.

Santa Cruz Reserve DH 27.5-inch Rim
$649.00
TAKING THE GOAT MEDAL. The Santa Cruz Syndicate took the downhill racing world by storm when they showed up aboard a 29" V10 at Lourdes in 2017. Once the bike and wheel size were proven, we got to work on a 29" DH rim that would stand up to the high standards (and abuse) of Minnaar and Shaw. Now available in mullet-enabling 27.5" and 29" and approved for use on e-bikes.

Santa Cruz Reserve 30 29-inch Wheelset
$1,599.00 - $2,199.00
Five years ago, Santa Cruz debunked every skeptic's fear about the long-term durability of carbon fiber bicycle frames. Now they are doing the same for wheels. Santa Cruz Reserve wheels are built on the highest quality carbon rims on the market. Their confidence in the design and strength of the wheels is backed up by a lifetime warranty, just like Santa Cruz frames.

Santa Cruz Highball CC Frame
$1,899.00
The Highball is our flagship carbon hardtail race thoroughbred and a dark horse in XC versatility. More capable than a pure endurance bike, more composed than most XC race-rigs, the Highball has evolved to be easier to ride harder for longer. We fine-tuned the carbon layup process and the low-angle, bridgeless seatstays join the seat tube below the top tube junction in order to curb trail chatter. Built around a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package combines to take the "hard" out of hardtail riding. It has the mindset of a race bike but it’s prepared for more. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB, and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far.
Santa Cruz Chameleon AL R 27.5+
$2,399.00
The Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between. Depending on setup and skill level, the Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around use. Going for maximum speed and rollability? Go 29er. Riding mostly loose terrain? Get some Plus tires that provide traction for days. With the Chameleon, the most versatile bike in our range ticks even more boxes. - Aluminum 29/27+ frame - FOX Rhythm 34 130mm fork, 29/27+ - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - WTB ST i40 TCS 2.0 rims - Maxxis Rekon 2.8" tires

Santa Cruz Chameleon C R 29
$2,699.00
The Chameleon, one of our longest-tenured models, has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully imagined carbon fiber sub-species. It’s Darwinism in action. We took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon and added a lighter, faster, more advanced version of the species. It’s a do-it-all hardtail that is as happy making the most of backyard booter (mis)adventures as it is fully-loaded with camp gear and a color-matched dangle mug. Two bottle cage mounts, including a triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube mean you can escape from the crowds, too. The Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between.

Santa Cruz Tallboy AL D
$2,799.00
If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it. The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre-bending folk hero. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design, this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But, because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. And, the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on... Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Knowing your answer, we mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short-offset fork, something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. And, the radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side. - Aluminum frame - RockShox Recon RL 130mm fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain - WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 29-inch rims - SRAM Level brakes w/Avid Centerline 180mm rotor
Santa Cruz Hightower AL D
$2,999.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this "Engineering Best Of..." assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. Hightower excels when the route covers 'all points in between,' and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes while maintaining progressivity! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first-generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more "Get me out of here!" capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus-sized tires are required. In the Low position, the shock rate is more progressive to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There's refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. - Aluminum 29/27+ 145mm Travel VPP frame - RockShox 35 Gold RL 150mm fork - FOX Float Performance DPS shock - SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain - WTB ST i30 TCS 2.0 rims - Maxxis Minion tires

Santa Cruz Bronson AL R
$3,499.00
Santa Cruz's most notorious thriller, the Bronson, is ready for action no matter what role it's cast into. The Bronson has the biggest personality in our range. From flat-out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. It's like our most capable all-around bike just had a set of afterburners bolted on. With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point, however twisted you get. There's plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. We offer build kit options for "regular" 27.5 and Plus-size, using 2.6 tires. It feels like the sorta big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires. Its versatility makes Bronson the go-to choice for those seeking a skeleton key to unlock unfamiliar trails.
