Santa Cruz Hightower 2 C XT 29" Mountain Bike
With 140mm of ground-hugging travel and fast-rolling 29” wheels, the Santa Cruz Hightower 2 C XT Mountain Bike is the ultimate all-rounder. Nestling into the lineup between the long-travel Megatower and downcountry Tallboy, the Hightower is an impressive climber that is more than capable on chunky descents. With the revised, lower-link driven VPP suspension design, it delivers an unflappable ride character that absorbs chatter and high-impact hits with ease, without leaving you feeling over-biked.
With an advanced composite construction, the Hightower frame balances stiffness with compliance, ensuring a responsive ride that does not compromise on comfort. A slack, 65 degree head angle eats up even steep descents, yet the steep seat tube angle provides an efficient climbing position. A flip-chip allows for geometry adjustment, with a high and low setting to meet the needs of a range of riders. In the low setting, the shock rate is more progressive - perfect for bombing your favourite descent at the trail centre.
In typical Santa Cruz style, the frame is loaded with smart, trail-friendly features. A threaded bottom bracket sees creak-free performance, and the refined cable routing enhances shifting. A tailgate and downtube guard ensure pick-up truck friendly protection, and a shock fender prevents dirt buildup in the linkage. For a sublime on-trail experience, a noise-cancelling chainstay protector silences potential chain slap for a quiet, focused ride. This feature-packed frame is also backed by a lifetime frame warranty, as well as a lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy to keep it running smoothly season after season.
To deliver total composure on rough terrain, the 150mm FOX 36 Performance Elite suspension fork and RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock are specified for a silky-smooth ride. Shimano XT 8120 four-piston brakes are equipped to deliver ample stopping power, and are an ideal choice for rowdy trail riding. The Shimano XT drivetrain sees crisp shifts across the wide 12-speed range, and carbon Santa Cruz bars offer compliance through trail chatter. The Burgtec Enduro MK3 stem adds an aftermarket touch, and the Race Face AR Offset rims are laced up to the critically acclaimed DT Swiss 350 hubs for impeccable cornering.
