The world all is all about choice and the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 2018 just happens to offer you the choice of 27.5+ or 29er, depending on the sort of bike you are looking for.

Plussers are new to the party and the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 27.5+ is the night club boss! Giving up new levels of grip for bigger, bouncier, tastier 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 the pinnacle of a totally new breed of bike. Offering 135mm of VPP  rear wheel travel and 150mm Fox fork, on double sealed 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 CC's VPP system means minimal bob and maximum power to the rear wheel, while the 27.5+ tyres will soak up technical step ups and loose gravel alike.

On the flip side, 2017 has been THE year of the 29er, with big world cup DH wins for the experimental 29er V10 and more new trail 29ers than ever before. No wonder, then, that the Hightower CC 29er build is proving so very popular. With a 'point and shoot' attitude, the big wheel will make the most of that 135mm of Fox Float DPS rear travel and make short work of rocks, roots and braking bumps. Top speed attacks on climbs are a breeze and the VPP system smooths out trail chatter to see you riding high on every surface.

Coming equipped with a SRAM Eagle 12 speed driectrain, you have all the gears you need to tackle any terrain and the SRAM Guide RSC brakes give all the power you need to shave off the speed for corners and drops. A KS Lev 150mm dropper post means that you can get the saddle out of the way when things get seriously steep and Maxxis Minion (29er) or Rekon (27.5+) 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 CC's excellent Hope/ WTB wheelset is unique to Santa Cruz and tracks faultlessly, while offering the legendary rapid pick up that Hope are famous for - oh and that clicking sound. Finishing kit is right out of the top drawer, with Bergtec stem, Hope headset, WTB saddle and even a carbon bar from Santa Cruz offering you the best kit money can buy. Point the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 27.5+ or 29er up or down anything and be assured that the top flite carbon frame will see you through whatever challenges lie ahead. Plus bikes are here to stay, 29ers rule - and the Santa Cruz Hightower CC truly is the very best of either breed - don't be left behind.
