The Santa Cruz Hightower is a big-travel trail bike for the rider who sends a little too hard and should probably be overbiked. The Hightower LT CC is built with all the best tech Santa Cruz has to offer, from carbon to suspension to components. The 150mm of suspension rivals enduro bikes, but it’s still a great trail bike. The VPP suspension efficiently isolates pedal power from the Fox Performance Elite suspension so the bike doesn’t wallow in its own squishiness. That makes the Hightower a capable climber even with 150mm of travel, and carbon wheels add to that capability. The Santa Cruz Hightower LT CC can take you on trail rides and take the punishment when you pick wild lines through the rock gardens or catch too much air off a rock on the descent.
