SANTA CRUZ'S ALL NEW HIGHTOWER HAS GOT OUR PULSES RACING!
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, featuring Santa Cruz's lower-link mounted shock design and updated, adjustable geometry, tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal influenced inputs.
140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives the Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model.
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
