Santa Cruz Hightower AL R Mountain Bike 2022

A true jack of all trades, the Santa Cruz Hightower Alloy R Mountain Bike is a versatile trail-slayer. With its 29” wheels and 145mm of supple VPP lower-link driven suspension travel, it delivers confidence-inspiring traction across all terrains. The high-quality aluminium frame is stiff and durable, ensuring lasting durability season after season.

Coupling performance and value, the specification is well suited to the bike’s intentions. Stopping power is provided by the four-piston SRAM G2 R brakes, and the RockShox Yari RC suspension fork delivers 150mm of plush travel, which is enough to soak up all but the biggest of hits. A SRAM NX groupset sees reliable, proven shifting, and high-quality touches such as the Burgtec Enduro stem ensure this bike stands out from the crowd.
