Santa Cruz' 2014 Jackal is the Bike the Extreme Sports Nut Inside of You Has Been Waiting For
Bike riding is as much about fun as it is about getting from one place to another. The folks at Santa Cruz understand this, and the 2014 Jackal is built to give you the most exciting ride possible. This bike will not only get you where you need to go, it will get you to places you never thought you’d be.
The sturdy aluminum frame and Hardtail suspension system can handle the impact from landing even the toughest jumps with no problem, but still weighs in at only 5 pounds, much less than previous models, so taking your Jackal anywhere never becomes a burden.
The Jackal’s 26” wheels are designed to take a beating, so any surface (cement, dirt, gravel) is navigated with ease. The rear dropout has been specially designed to work with multiple gears or as a single speed bike, allowing it to be customized to the rider’s specific style. Offered in a variety of colors, this bike is meant to match any rider’s personality.
The newest model boasts a tapered headtube for even more strength and stability, and the top-of-the-line disc brakes make sure that when (or if) you ever do decide to slow down it can be done as smoothly as possible. Even the toughest ride can be your next ride with the Santa Cruz Jackal.
Online review “Competitive Cyclist” says “the completely redesigned Santa Cruz Jackal is now years ahead of all others”. So grab one for yourself and get going. Take that hill that you always thought looked too steep. Or that jump that you always thought was too far. Because with the new 2014 Santa Cruz Jackal, you’re going to have to test your own limits, because your bike will have none.
