Hightower Carbon CC X01 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Pre-ride playlists are a difficult thing to master. You need just the right balance of amp-you-up-energy, smooth rhythms to help you roll through the rough sections, and banger hits that we're convinced will help us power up climbs when we're feeling gassed and need to find a little more fuel in our reserve tank.When we're cruising down the road on our way to the trailhead, its unusual for us to play the same song on repeat through the whole drive, even if it's a total banger. Instead, we delicately craft playlists to offer banger after banger, amping us up for the ride ahead with a balance of power metal, 90's hip hop, and indie jams (or, you know, whatever suits your taste). Much like our favorite play lists, Santa Cruz's Hightower Carbon CC X01 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike is crafted to offer one hit after another, coming to us in a new generation that tosses old geometry by the wayside, blowing beyond previous generations of the Hightower and Hightower LT, and finding a nice spot to hang out just between the Tallboy and the Megatower. It packs in all-new geometry from the old Hightower, and stretches further than even the LT before it, plus new lower linkage that lends queues to the Nomad for total downhill stability, and a flip-chip for flexibility. The result is a powerful trail bike that's capable of holding its own in the rough and rowdy, and racing back up to the top to get another lap of hits. Throughout Santa Cruz's lineup, the Hightower has long been known as a do-it-all trail bike, capable of backcountry endurance adventures in the Santa Cruz mountains, and fast laps at your local trail network when you need to hammer out as many post-workday miles as possible. It remains as that, but as a more capable bike than before, stretching its reach out a 20mm (on sizes small through large), offering more room in the cockpit to play with, while a more relaxed head tube elevates confidence on the descent. The new head tube angle sits a full 1. 5-degrees slack...

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.
