Plussers are new to the party and the Santa Cruz Hightower C 27.5+ is the DJ! Giving up new levels of grip for bigger, bouncier, grippier performance than ever before, while also teasing just a bit of what the fat bike posse are enjoying (sand and snow action - oh yeah) the Hightower 27.5 is a totally new breed of bike. Offering 135mm of VPP Rock Shox Monarch rear wheel travel and 150mm Pike fork, on double sealed, enduro bike sourced bearings and pivots, you can point this bike at the gnarliest, most root infested trails and simply float across the lot. Worried about climbing back up the trail? Don't be the Hightower's VPP system means minimal bob and maximum power to the rear wheel, while the 27.5+ tyres will soak up technical climbs and skull sized rocks alike.

Coming equipped with SRAM GX 1x11 gearing, you have all the gears you need to tackle any terrain and the Shimano SLX brakes give all the power you need to shave off the speed for corners and drops. A Rock Shox Reverb dropper post means that you can get the saddle out of the way when things get seriously steep and Maxxis Minion Rekon tyres (already set up tubeless - no one else does that for you) will hold onto even the most technical, off camber sections of trail like limpets. The Hightower's excellent SRAM/ Easton wheelset is unique to Santa Cruz and tracks faultlessly, while offering incredibly rapid pick up when you put the power down. Point the Santa Cruz Hightower C 27.5+ up or down anything and be assured that the top notch carbon frame will see you through whatever challenges lie ahead. Plus bikes are here to stay - and the Santa Cruz Hightower C 27.5 truly is the best of this new breed - don't be left behind.

For an independent outlook on the Hightower, check out this review by Bike Radar, or swoon at the beautifully shot account from the RadavistSingletrack magazine's Barney has also had a Hightower on long term test. Bicycling.com were also all over the Hightower and particularly loved the 29er set up in their thorough review.
