Product Info

Born for big days in big terrain, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower CC Frame has become famous for its versatility. Faster than bigger bikes and more capable than its 135mm travel suggests, the Hightower is a genre-busting bike that simplifies everything: you can get back to calling what you do "mountain biking" and leave it at that. This CC carbon frame is Santa Cruz's highest quality, and the kashima-coat Fox Float Factory DPS shock is plush and adjustable. This frameset is the foundation for a critical dream build.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

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 Factory DPS Rear ShockFor 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.
