We love the Santa Cruz Hightower CC X0 Eagle Transmission Reserve Mountain Bike for its ability to be the perfect bike on most rides. Fitted at the top end of the trail spectrum and the bottom end of the enduro category the Hightower is capable of taking on an array of trails being an efficient climber and a ruthless descender. With a 64. 8-degree head tube angle and a 77-degree seat tube angle the Hightower puts us in the perfect position to make climbs a breeze and feel stable on the descents. The large 29-inch wheels help the rollover abilities and Santa Cruz's renowned VPP suspension platform is super efficient and eats up the bumps. Santa Cruz's premium Carbon CC frame uses the best materials available and is ultra-stiff and lightweight. This version of The Santa Cruz Hightower Mountain Bike is equipped with SRAM's X0 Eagle AXS Transmission drivetrain giving us the most advanced electronic drivetrain on the market for precise shifting. Next Reserve 30HD carbon rims ramp up the stiffness and shed weight while Industry Nine's 1/1 hub features a high engagement for supplying instant power to the wheels when we need it on the technical climbs. A RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork and a Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock allow us to make the necessary adjustments and are reliable. Wrapping it up premium Maxxis tires help keep the bike on the ground and supply tons of grip and bite. *Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
