Gone are the days when 29ers were restricted to XC race tracks, ridden by lycra-clad whippets - welcome to the Santa Cruz Hightower C 29er, the new breed of tech trail 29er that is redefining how we see big wheeled bikes. Offering 135mm of VPP Rock Shox Monarch rear wheel travel on double sealed, enduro bike sourced bearings and pivots and 140mm Pike fork, you can point this bike down anything and come out grinning like a Cheshire cat. 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 29er wheels will roll over every rock and root on the trail making the ascent a breeze.

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 steep drops. A Rock Shox Reverb dropper post means that you can get the saddle out of the way when things get gnarly and Maxxis Minion 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 up or down anything and be assured that the top notch carbon frame will see you through whatever challenges lie ahead. 29ers have never been this capable - the Santa Cruz Hightower C truly takes things to another level - don't be left behind.
