Hightower LT Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
When Santa Cruz's team riders were spotted racing enduros on modified 29-inch Hightowers, it became the internet's worst secret. Spy shots circulated and everyone was curious what Santa Cruz had up its sleeve. And while the original HT opened up a lot of people's eyes of what a big-wheeled machine could do on technical terrain and its ability to carry momentum and speed over aggressive trails, for the rough and tumble EWS circuit, there's no replacement for displacement.

Whereas the original HT had 135-millimeters of travel at the rear and 140-millimeters up front in 29er form, thanks to revised linkages and a longer stroke on the shock, the Hightower LT bumps up to 150-millimeters of travel at the front and rear. That also creates a slacker head tube angle at 66. 4 degrees and a slightly longer wheelbase, which injects a ton of confidence while navigating steep descents with wheel sucking rock gaps, massive root lattices, and drops o' plenty. As opposed to the Hightower's dual wheel size persona, the LT is purely intended as a 29-inch mobber, and the engineers at Santa Cruz eliminated the flip-chip, refining it for its dedicated wheel size and its aim at enduro racing and aggressive all-mountain use.
