Santa Cruz Hightower Alloy R 29" Mountain Bike 2020
Santa Cruz has blended some of their most prominent off-road design traits to result in the Hightower Alloy R 29 Mountain Bike. Conceived to excel across as many different trail scenarios as possible the Hightower is just at home on sinuous downhills as it is across technical, rock-strewn singletrack.
The agile aluminium frame permits manoeuvrability within the tightest of situations before trail composure and poise is added by the integrated lower-link-mounted rear suspension design and its partnering FOX Float shock. This suspension design is then complemented at the front with increased trail control and precision provided by the RockShox Yari RC fork and its 150mm of plush cushioning.
The 29-inch wheelset and its larger diameter facilitates smooth passage across any terrain before its boost configuration naturally adds lateral stiffness. The dependable WTB alloy rims within the build are unperturbed by roots, ruts and rocks before the SRAM MTH hubs provide reliable, long-lasting performance even during mucky conditions.
A 12-speed cassette with a huge range of ratios allows for exploration of any topography and is managed by crisp and proficient gear changes by the SRAM NX Eagle groupset. Forward drive is catered for by the SRAM crankset and its efficient DUB axle before braking is taken care of in a modulated manner by a fully hydraulic configuration. The Race Face Aeffect dropper seat post then allows for intuitive adjustment of the saddle height granting control for technical trails or maximum pedalling efficiency for when putting down the power.
An already hugely versatile build is complemented further by the Flip Chip feature. This technology permits rider-tuned rear suspension levels that can be altered in line with the forthcoming trails.
A tremendously versatile 29er trail bike with full suspension for any kind of off-road riding. Nimble for sinuous downhill, hardy for the roughest of terrain and responsive for snappy climbing.
