Details

The Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon brings versatility and brawn to the game, while hitting a sweet spot for aggressive trail riding. It sports 140mm of rear travel, complemented by a 150mm front end, fast-rolling 29er wheels, and a slacker 65-degree head angle.

Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames, and the Hightower Carbon flies that flag yet higher. Its advanced chassis tracks well across all types of trail surfaces, holds a line well, and is reactive to rider directions. while isolating pedal-influenced inputs.

The Hightower Carbon gives you that 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 Hightower Carbon S build comes stock with burly RaceFace AR Offset 30 29" Rims, while the S Reserve build comes with Santa Cruz Reserve 30 29" Carbon Rims. The R comes with SRAM Guide R brakes, while the S and S Reserve builds' SRAM Code R brakes take no shortcuts to deliver high-power and precise control. The WTB Silverado Race Saddle (R build) and WTB Silverado Pro Saddle (S builds) and RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper (S builds) put you in control in myriad riding scenarios, all with clean lines and lightweight performance.
