Hightower LT Carbon CC 29 X01 Eagle Reserve Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
If big wheels and high speeds are what you're after, the Enduro World Series-bred Santa Cruz Hightower LT CC X01 Reserve complete mountain bike is a truly worthy steed. Building on the legacy of the critically acclaimed Hightower, the longer travel Hightower LT blends the handling required to be competitive come race day with a playful side that remains inspiring when conditions are somewhat less demanding.

The LT's 150mm of travel has been painstakingly refined, drawing lessons from every aspect of Santa Cruz's enviable racing organization. As with all VPP bikes, the LT's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating unwanted bobbing under power. This being the latest iteration of VPP, it's tuned to provide more midstroke support than previous generations of the VPP platform, giving the rider a better feel for the terrain, and a slightly more energetic ride feel.
