Product Info

Enduro, trail, all-mountain, whatever - the Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower CC X01 AXS Reserve Complete Mountain Bike is too busy ripping to care about your labels. The slacker head tube angle means this bike is ready for fast and stable descents but the steeper seat tube keeps you efficient on the climbs. The upgraded suspension is even more supportive and won't leave you with any surprises, and the new Glovebox in the frame lets you ditch the backpacks and bladders and feel the breeze on your back as you tear up the entire mountain.

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.

Lower-Link Mounted 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. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

Rockshox Super Deluxe UltimateDesigned for the latest hard-hitting enduro and trail bikes, Super Deluxe Ultimate features the ride-tuning abilities of an air spring with both compression and rebound adjustment to fine tune to any trail. With a solid threshold adjustment for pedaling performance and Maxima Plush fluid for a buttery smooth feel, riders can now easily dial in a podium-worthy ride.

The Glovebox™Seal whatever you want to carry on your ride inside your downtube. Secure and easy to access, the Glovebox™ has a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse inside, to help organize your stuff too. Simply cavernous!
