Santa Cruz is Here! Meet the Hightower.

We are proud to introduce Santa Cruz bikes to our inventory because they are committed to do one thing: build the best performance mountain bikes just the way they want to. The Hightower is a great example of this.

Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever kind of terrain is in front of you— running either 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world.

Choosing the Wheel

29

If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29” wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to the new Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands.

27.5+

When conditions get loose and the traction is sketchy, the 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rail the soft spots and carry momentum where standard tires bog down.

Geometry

No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a “High/Low” setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height*. Hightower’s 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration. Meanwhile, 150mm of seat dropper, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an collection of details.

Suspension

135mm of VPP® travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of linkage arrangement and swingarm design reserved for the heaviest hitters in their model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there.
