Santa Cruz HIGHTOWER RESERVE CC XX1 AXS - 29" Carbon Mountainbike - 2021 - smoke grey

The Bike version of your most cherished mix tape!

The Hightower excels when the route covers "all points in between" and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension's lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity!


Key features of the Santa Cruz HIGHTOWER

  • carbon CC frame
  • FOX 36 Float Factory Fork with 150mm travel
  • RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock
  • RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post
  • electronic SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS 12-speed drivetrain
  • Reserve 30 carbon wheelset


More details of the Santa Cruz HIGHTOWER

140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65° head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more "Oh sh*t get me out of here" capability.

Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs.

The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance.

There's a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There's refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation and no cable rub. On top of that, there's a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet.
