Hightower Carbon CC XX1 Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Hightower LT was once a thing of legend.

At the time, it was slightly unusual to see a mid-travel 29er as such a capable rig, only because the Hightower LT was well ahead of its time. Now in an era when mid and long-travel 29ers rule the scene, the Hightower Carbon CC XX1 Reserve Mountain Bike has had a head start in its development, and has been engineered to the level of trail-mastery.

Once you ride it, you'll realize that it's ready for any downhill challenge yet still begs to be pedaled up for another lap once you're down.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 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.
