Product Info

Born for big days in big terrain, we proudly introduce the girthy tire-equipped Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower C R+ Complete Mountain Bike. This particular build is equipped with 27.5"+ wheels for elevated traction and momentum through berms and softer conditions, but it's worth noting that the adaptive "High/Low" geometry will also accommodate 29" wheels if you prefer more straightline speed and enhanced rollover. When it comes to the build kit, this bad boy comes complete with a lightweight carbon frameset and highly capable 1x11 SRAM NX drivetrain. If you're the type of rider who loves logging miles of meandering singletrack, but doesn't want to hold back when things get spicy, look no further than the Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower C R+ Complete Mountain Bike.

Product Details


Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

135mm VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines.

Fox Float Performance DPS ShockFox's highest performing inline shock gets refined with a lighter, one-piece EVOL air sleeve to improve responsiveness and sensitivity, an updated valve design to improve both rebound and compression flow, and a DPS damper with three positions to match any terrain. FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

RockShox Revelation RCRevelation has grown. After many years as the original long travel trail fork, the new Revelation is ready to tackle the most demanding trail and enduro rides. The chassis is directly derived from the new Pike, with 35mm upper tubes for unmatched stiffness and to pair with the aggressive look of modern trail and enduro bikes.

Drive Train

SRAM NX 11-Speed ShifterSRAM NX trigger shifter with X-ACTUATION™ technology gives you sharp, dependable shifting. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the NX trigger shifter brings industry changing technology to everyone.

Race Face Æffect CranksetThe Æffect crankset is designed to handle aggressive trail riding at a XC crank weight and attractive pricepoint. Featuring the Cinch System with its interchangeable spider options and Race Face's trusted 24mm EXI interface spindle, the Æffect is a rock solid crankset for today's XC and trail riders.

SRAM NX 11-Speed Rear DerailleurThe SRAM NX X-HORIZON™ rear derailleur provides the same smooth, reliable shifting action as XX1—from the larger upper pulley offset to the 12-tooth X-SYNC™ pulley wheels. By eliminating unwanted chain movement, X-HORIZON™ shifts faster, puts an end to ghost shifting and reduces shift force and chain slap. And with CAGE LOCK™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.

SRAM XG1150 CS 10-42T CassetteFULL PIN™ technology uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42t gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design similar to our X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.


SRAM Level T Hydraulic Disc BrakesetLevel T capitalizes on the same trail-taming brake technology that conquered the 2015 World Mountain Bike Championships, to deliver a powerful and consistent XC and trail-optimized brake set that keeps your capital in the bank. This budget-minded, MatchMaker™ compatible brake set provides all the power of its siblings, keeping you in complete control.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Rekon+ TiresThe Rekon+ is an aggressive trail tire inspired by the Ikon+ for intermediate and technical terrain. Wide knobs down the middle provide control under braking and L-shaped side knobs assure support when carving loose turns. With confidence like this you can race more and scout less with the Rekon+.

Additional Features

Race Face Æffect Dropper SeatpostA budget friendly but rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminum makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits. Internal cable routing compatible for modern frame design.
