INDUSTRY CRUSHING PERFORMANCE
We’re all aware that bikes have been increasing in price over the last few years. Santa Cruz have made it a priority to get the radness of their carbon technology to “trickle-down” to within reach of more riders.
They’ve managed to increased build options to create the kind of industry-crushing performance that now comes standard from Santa Cruz.
Working with exclusive manufacturing partner, they have used proprietary processes to create lower-cost carbon frames that retain the same legendary strength and stiffness they’re known for. Achieving this by using different grades of carbon material that results in a minimal weight gain of approximately 250-280 grams (0.6 lbs) per frame.
Existing, high-grade carbon frames are known as “CC,” and you’ll find them with XT/X01-level builds and higher.
