Product Highlights


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.


Known for their advanced materials and construction methods, Santa Cruz carbon is light and durable.

Santa Cruz Hightower C R Mountain Bike 2022

Featuring 145mm of smooth, supportive VPP suspension travel, the Santa Cruz Hightower C R Mountain Bike is supremely capable, suitable for rough, techy trail riding. With modern long-reach geometry and a slack 65-degree angle, it offers a confident ride without sacrificing its ability to climb, making it a superb answer for those seeking one bike to do it all. The C grade carbon layup is lightweight and stiff, and with a lifetime frame and bearing warranty, you can push your limits in confidence. 

Noone does attention to detail quite like Santa Cruz, a trait truly apparent on the Hightower. A threaded bottom bracket ensures easy home replacements, and a tailgate guard and downtube protector safeguard the frame from rock strikes and uplift damage. A rear shock mudguard prevents grime and grit from reaching the stanchion, and the noise-cancelling chainstay guard eliminates unwanted chain clatter.

This R spec build blends value with performance, with its smart component selection providing lasting durability on the trails. A SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain sees crisp shifts and excellent reliability, while the RockShox Yari and FOX Float DPS shock combination irons out treacherous trails. The SRAM G2 R brakes feature four pistons to enhance their stopping power, and fast-rolling 29” wheels deliver stability and grip in equal measure.
