Mounted in the linkage, this flip chip allows for alterations to geometry and suspension progression.
Hear that? Silence. The ribs on this chainstay protector reduce chain slap to dampen noise.
Stiff and robust, this linkage is optimised for pedalling efficiency and smoothing out big hits.

Santa Cruz Hightower C 29" Frame 2021
Santa Cruz’s Hightower C 29" Frame offers 145mm of travel that can be paired with a 150mm fork to form the basis of a trail bike extraordinaire. The VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) design with its lower-link-mounted shock ensures good pedalling efficiency and supple suspension so that it climbs almost as well as it descends. Should a lower or higher bottom bracket be required, the flip-chip can be used to fine-tune the bike’s geometry to better suit the terrain.
Practical touches that will be appreciated by all riders include a water bottle mount, shuttle guard, shock mudguard and chainstay protector to keep the chain quiet whilst the threaded bottom bracket and easy cable routing will be a boon for home mechanics.
