You lie in bed at night and dream of a bike that can really do it all—climb the tallest backcountry passes with ease, tear through the rootiest, rockiest tracks, and slingshot out of corners when you get on the gas. Wake up and meet Santa Cruz's Hightower CC 27.5+. Its CC-carbon frame is as light, responsive, and strong as it gets, while the 135mm of VPP suspension annihilates any and all terrain that gets in your way. These combine to give the Hightower the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon and seamlessly adapt to the trails and style you ride, from the rocky peaks of the Dolomites to the rain forest of British Columbia. When conditions get loose and the traction just can't be found, you’ll want to reach for bigger tires. The 27.5+ tires elevate Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rise above the pow, rail the soft spots, and carry momentum where standard tires bog down. The Hightower features a SRAM X01 drivetrain for quick, efficient shifting. The one-by set-up allows Santa Cruz to keep the chainstays as short as possible, while the headtube angle and longer reach combine to create a dreadnought that can roll over anything that dare lay in your path.
