Hightower Carbon 27.5+ R Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Rolling on the voluminous support of 27. 5+ wheels, the Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon 27. 5+ R Complete Mountain Bike steamrolls every line in sight and grabs tenaciously around loose corners where you'd previously wash out. Designed for everything from rowdy alpine descents to undulating forest trails, the Hightower 27. 5+ gives you the ability to cruise over the rockiest terrain and loosest soil with its massive tires grabbing to anything lying in its path. Paired with 135 millimeters of responsive VPP suspension, you'll find the Hightower 27. 5+ blurs the line between dedicated trail bike and aggressive all-mountain rig.

The 66. 8-degree head tube angle strikes a nice balance between descending composure without being overly slack for spirited climbs back to the top of the mountain. To ensure it's ready for long climbs, the engineers at Santa Cruz gave it a 74. 3-degree seat tube angle, which places you in an optimal position for laying power to the pedals. Furthermore, the 17. 1-inch chainstays are short enough for quick maneuvers around tight corners and uphill switchbacks. The Hightower uses the third generation of Santa Cruz's VPP suspension, often referred to as VPP3, for increased mid-stroke support and greater traction over small bu...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
