Product Info

Made to excel in the demanding Enduro World Series, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower LT CC Frame is an absolute trail demon. This bike climbs like the efficient 29er it is, with all the fast-rolling grip in the world, but it's on the downhills where this bike shines. 150mm of VPP travel absolutely gobbles up the rough stuff, revealing new lines and shockingly-late braking points on your favorite trails--you're going to have to readjust your riding approach and come up with some new excuses for not riding those psycho sections--because this bike can absolutely handle them. With a Fox Factory DPX2 shock and Santa Cruz CC carbon frame made so beefy that Santa Cruz guarantees it for life, this is all the bike you're ever going to need.

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.

150mm 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 DPX2 Rear ShockCombining the best of X2 and DPS, the DPX2 features a recirculating oil damper design with the convenience of three on-the-fly compression damping positions.
