Santa Cruz has just leaked pictures of its new 29er carbon hardtail. It doesn’t have a name yet (that they’re telling anyone anyway) and the details are deliberately vague, but they’ll be doing a full launch at the end of March.
Basically it’s a carbon 29er hardtail, with tapered head tube and wishbone back end. It features a normal threaded BB insert rather than the recent (and confusing) move towards multiple different press-fit BBs. It features a picture of a coctail glass and the name won’t include the words ‘boy’ or ‘knife’
