Highlights


Product Description

The Santa Cruz Hightower is Santa Cruz’s go-fast mid-travel 29er mountain bike. While the first-generation bike received a ton of awards for how balanced the bike felt, many thought it could use a bit more oomph. Santa Cruz responded with the Hightower LT, bumping up suspension travel and capability. Years of feedback from consumers and EWS riders alike has brought about the 2021 Santa Cruz Hightower CC, which takes the knowledge and burliness of their long-travel 29ers and builds it into a lighter, more nimble package.

The Hightower CC starts life around Santa Cruz's high-modulus carbon frame that saves about 250 grams over the standard frame. Santa Cruz moved the shock to the bottom bracket area on it’s bigger bikes to build in a slightly more linear leverage curve, which in turn makes for a more supportive mid-stroke right past the sag point. While the Hightower isn’t meant to soak up the trail like the brand’s long-travel bikes, the end results make perfect sense for the bike’s intended riders. With just 140 mm travel out back (and 150 mm at the fork) paired a suspension that is more supportive than ever, you get a bike that straight up climbs better than its weight and suspension travel might indicate.

What else is there? Well, the Hightower has contemporary suspension geometry that is geared toward being a do-all trail bike. A 65-degree headtube angle, 76-degree seat tube angle, and 470 mm reach in a size large are par for the course in 2020, and are similar to what’s found on the Megatower. There is also a familiar-sounding list of advantages and features. Here, you’ll find a threaded bottom bracket, linkage covers to protect against dirt and grime, downtube protectors to protect against rocks and tailgates, and a ribbed chainstay guard. Hightower is designed to fit a 29 x 2.4" tire with room to spare, or a 27" plus tire should that be your jam. And as always, Santa Cruz offers a lifetime warranty for each frameset they sell.

The Santa Cruz Hightower CC XX1 is available in five sizes (S-XXL) and two colorways:

Santa Cruz Hightower XX1 Eagle AXS Reserve – RFox 36 Float Factory 150 mm fork, RockShox Super Deluxe Select Ultimate 140 mm shock, SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS drivetrain, SRAM Code RSC brakes, RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost, Santa Cruz Carbon Riser Bar, Chris King Headset, and Santa Cruz Reserve 30 carbon rims to Industry Nine Hydra hubs. It retails for $10499.
