Product Description

The new Santa Cruz Hightower is a bike that can do it all. With its lower-link mounted shock design and updated, adjustable geometry, the Hightower is a great choice for any rider looking for a bike that can handle any terrain.

The Hightower's VPP suspension provides a linear leverage curve, meaning it can handle bumps of all sizes and maintain a progressive feel.

The Hightower's advanced chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The new 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.

The perfect bike to ride trails or even hit the local bike park!
