Santa Cruz Hightower 2018 Carbon C Bike 29" R Kit. Large

3,599.10 3,999.00

The Hightower is roughly comparable to the Bronson as a a great long-travel all-rounder, but with 29” wheels. As with many 29ers, the Hightower can also take a 27.5”+ wheel setup for big traction fun! This version has the Carbon C frame and R Build Kit.

With the Tallboy and Hightower LT either side of it, the Hightower sits nicely in the middle as a versatile all round long-travel trail bike.  You get the choice of 29” or 27.5”+ wheels, or perhaps a set of each?!  A quick flip of the chip on the upper linkage tweaks the geometry to match the slightly different wheel sizes.
