Why We Like The Santa Cruz Hightower CC Mountain Bike Frame

From aggressive trail riding to lightly dabbling in some enduro riding, the Santa Cruz Hightower is one of our top choices when we need a bike that is capable in various conditions. Being a mid-travel 29er, the Hightower is lightweight enough for long trail rides and capable enough to huck down technical descents and rollover rock gardens. The Hightower has 145mm of VPP suspension, which is highly efficient, climbs well, descends well, and provides a supportive mid-stroke. With a 64.8-degree head tube angle and a 77-degree seat tube angle, the Hightower puts us in a position to be efficient when pedaling and keeps our front wheel out ahead of us, making climbs a breeze and descents stable and composed. Santa Cruz made some additions to their frame recently, adding a Sag Window to make sag measuring and setup more accessible and a Glovebox frame storage that gives us storage space for our ride essentials in the frame's downtube. Size-specific chainstay lengths offer every rider of the Hightower the same balanced and poppy rear end. A revised leverage curve and suspension kinematics improve the Hightower's suspension sensitivity in both downhill and uphill scenarios. This gives us a reduced anti-squat for better pedaling performance and a more linear leverage curve for more bottom-out resistance and support. Other notable features of the Hightower include a Flip Chip to adjust the geometry of the bike for a slacker or steeper ride, and integrated protection with a shuttle guard, downtube protector, and chainstay protector.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
