Gone are the days when 29ers were restricted to XC race tracks, ridden by lycra-clad whippets - welcome to the Santa Cruz Hightower CC 29er, the pinnacle of the new breed of tech trail 29er that is redefining how we see big wheeled bikes. Shaving half a pound of it's little 'C' brother, there are no lighter big travel 29er frames out there. Offering 135mm of VPP Rock Shox Monarch rear wheel travel and 140mm Pike fork, on double sealed, enduro bike sourced bearings and pivots, you can point this bike down anything and come out grinning like the cat that got the cream. 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 or Shimano 1x11 gearing, you have all the gears you need to tackle any terrain and the Shimano or SRAM brakes with 180mm rotors give all the power you need to shave off the speed for corners and steep drops. A KS Lev 150mm  dropper post means that you can get the saddle out of the way when things get gnarly and Maxxis Minion DHR2 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 incredibly rapid pick up when you put the power down. Point the Santa Cruz Hightower up or down anything and be assured that the industry leading carbon frame will see you through whatever challenges lie ahead. 29ers have never been this capable - the Santa Cruz Hightower CC truly breaks the mold - be part of the experience.

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.
