The Santa Cruz Hightower brings versatility and brawn to the game while hitting a sweet spot for aggressive trail riding. It sports 135mm of rear travel, fast-rolling 29er wheels, and a 67-degree head angle. The Hightower gives you the extra bit of confidence to let off the brakes and let 'er rip through the rough stuff. It feels well-balanced in the air and corners like a champ. At the same time, it has impeccable trail manners and pedals efficiently, so you won’t get that ‘too much bike’ feeling if you end up doing an extra lap or pushing your ride further into the hills.

The C S build elevates your game on the trail. Its carbon C frame is of the same pedigree that proved carbon’s place in the world of mountain biking, offering unmatched durability and reliability. The S build comes stock with burly Race Face ARC rims laced to DT 350 hubs for a tough, smooth-spinning wheelset that lowers rotating mass. But, you can also upgrade to Santa Cruz’s Reserve carbon wheels, unrivaled in the world of carbon mountain wheels. A 140mm Fox 36 Float fork and a Fox DPS shock pair well with Santa Cruz's VPP suspension. You’ll appreciate the SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain’s massive 12-gear range and crisp shifts, allowing exploration of the steepest, most technical terrain out there. The Hightower’s SRAM Guide R brakes take no shortcuts to deliver high-power and precise control. The WTB saddle and RockShox Reverb stealth dropper put you in control in myriad riding scenarios, all with clean lines and lightweight performance.
