Hightower LT Carbon CC Perf Elite Mountain Bike Frame - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz blessed us with the Hightower early on in 2016. A bike to rival the Bronson, though with less travel, the 27. 5+ compatible 29er captured the hearts of many riders. So, why change it' Because, while quite capable with 135mm of travel, the designers for Santa Cruz, and many of their pro riders, live life with the belief that more of a good thing is probably better. With the Hightower LT Carbon CC Perf Elite Mountain Bike Frame, Santa Cruz has shown us that more can indeed be better. Six inches of supple VPP suspension gives you the squish you were missing from the standard Hightower, so you're ready to gobble up rock gardens and race down mountains like nobody's business. The industry has viewed 29ers with a mixture of love and hate over the past decade, but recently, with more reliable, stable, and confidence inspiring bikes being released with 29in wheels, we're finding that more riders are growing to love the lower rolling resistance and ability to cover more ground with each pedal stroke. That's especially evident in all-mountain and enduro circles. Given that changing preference, we weren't surprised that Santa Cruz followed up the XC-hungry Tallboy with the Hightower, effectively ushering 29ers into the world of enduro, and we're stoked to see the addition of a long travel 29er to the menu. While the Hightower was well loved for its increased rolling speed and ability to roll over rocks that would have deflected you off of the trail on a smaller wheel, some of the gnarlier riders found that its 135mm of suspension wasn't enough to keep up high speed in super rough terrain, thus the 150mm Hightower LT was born. The Hightower LT doesn't stray terribly far from the standard Hightower in overall geometry. In fact, they share the same front triangle all together. The key changes are those 15 additional millimeters of travel and the head and seat tubes, both of which are half a degree slacker. While increasing the travel is a relatively obvious way to...

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.
