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 Rock Shox Monarch RT3 rear wheel travel and 150mm Pike RCT 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.

Coming equipped with SRAM or Shimano 1x11 drietrain, you have all the gears you need to tackle any terrain and the Shimano or Avid/SRAM brakes with 180mm rotors 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 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 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. Point the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 27.5+ 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 - and the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 27.5 truly is the very 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 Radavist. Singletrack 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.
