Back by dope demand, the Santa Cruz Hightower C 2018 brings you the choice of a trail mashing 29er or fun & fresh 27.5+ bike on an excellent carbon frame with a range of great build kits to choose from. The C grade carbon frame is just as tough and strong as its CC big brother, while only gaining a few hundred grams and losing a lot of £s. Offering 135mm of legendary VPP via a Fox DPS shock, the Hightower C, performs brilliantly in either of its guises.

As a mid travel 29er, the Hightower C gives up 135mm of super smooth VPP travel, making it ideal for big days out, light enduro riding or even some Lake District passes. 29ers roll over obstacles with ease, offer a big contact patch in loose conditions and tackle rocky, rooty trails like they're tarmac. Keeping up speed is also a breeze, great for long distance riding and gravel sections. Matched to a 140mm fork and with a playfully 67 degree head angle, the Hightower C frame as a  29er is as much fun as it is a reliable trail partner.

Jumping to 27.5+ wheels and things get a little more…lairy. Front end travel jumps to 150mm and the tyres can be as wide as 3 inches, giving you masses of contact patch and ‘fat lite’ style handling. Plus bikes are fantastic for super loose trails, big rocky rides and days out where comfort might be valued a little more than speed. Climbing & cornering are also a dream, with so much grip on tap that you might think there was glue attached to your tyres. Cleverly, the Hightower C frame 2018 27.5 plus keeps the same enduro friendly 67 degree head angle.

RockShox Revelation (R model) and Fox 36 Forks (S & XE models) forks deliver great performance in terms of tracking, suspension action and adjustability, while the SRAM 1x11, SRAM Eagle or Shimano XT gearing options will ensure that you can get up, over and down anything you come across. The downhills will be further enhanced by the RockShox Reverb dropper post available on the S and XE models of the Hightower C. Maxis Minion (29er) and Rekon Tyres come set up tubeless as standard and laced to wide Race Face or WTB rims for maximum tyre volume and puncture resistance. Finishing kit from Race Face, WTB and Cane Creek, plus a Santa Cruz carbon bar option on the XE model, make the Hightower a very rounded package. No matter what sort of riding you love, the new Santa Cruz Hightower C 2018 has something to offer - give it shot!
