Product Info

Born for big days in big terrain, there's the Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower C S Complete Mountain Bike. This particular build is equipped with 29" wheels for straight-line speed and enhanced rollover, but its adaptive "High/Low" geometry will also happily accommodate 27.5" wheels if you prefer a little more agility. When it comes to the build kit, this bad boy comes complete with a lightweight carbon frameset and a cutting edge 1x12 SRAM GX Eagle™ 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 S Complete Mountain Bike.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

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 DPSFor a lightweight, inline shock, the DPS packs a lot of performance. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and rebound pistons, providing a firm lockout without compromising bump compliance, ride control, or efficiency. Performance Series 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.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™SRAM Eagle™ drivetrains are the only 1x drivetrains that are fully system engineered for optimal performance. Eagle™ drivetrains are designed, tested and proven to deliver the lightest, highest-performing, most durable systems for all riders on any trail. Eagle™ technology provides an expanded, optimum, gear range that allows you to realize your bike's potential beyond where it has ever been. Every SRAM GX Eagle™ component is 100% compatible with all levels of SRAM Eagle™ drivetrain systems.

Brakes

SRAM Guide R BrakesetWhat's it going to take to ride that line? It's steep. It's rocky. You've passed it a hundred times. But not this time. With the all-new SRAM Guide R, you have the power. Proven 4-piston calipers give you smooth, one-finger control. Features like Reach Adjust let you dial it in just right. And Guide perfectly complements other SRAM components and gives you flawless performance on every ride. Now featuring the World Championship-winning S4 caliper with Bleeding Edge™ and Heat Shield technologies.

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

Race Face AR Offset 27 29" Rims Laced to DT 370 32h HubsA light and tough alloy wheel made for the demands of the EWS Enduro series, these are trail-tested to be durable and responsive. At 27mm internal width, they pair well with today's trail tires.

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II | Rear TireThe trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.
