NEW Santa Cruz Hightower "LT"

NEW Santa Cruz Hightower "LT"

Another beautiful machine by the leading mtn bike people on the planet. Santa Cruz tells us this machine will be arriving soon and we can't wait. While we love the current Hightower we wanted MORE!!! More travel to soak up the big stuff. 

The Hightower originally hit the market in 2016 with big fan fare. It was an instant success with it's big rolling platform that just screamed "the need for speed". With  the new LT model the engineering team designed a new set of links that pushed the travel to soak up everything the Enduro race courses could deliver up.

The Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It's truly race-bred, its design is the result of the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico. 

The LT's geometry is extremely close to the regular Hightower, as the bikes share a front triangle. The increased travel means the reach is slightly (7mm) shorter, the head angle a half-degree slacker, and the seat angle a half-degree slacker, as well. The rear triangle retains the dual upright design, but adds a post-mount rear brake.

Unlike the Hightower, you can't run 27.5+ tires in the LT, and there's no flip chip to change the suspension. It's made to go fast, give you a bigger margin of error, and take on the biggest mountains in the world. Check out the full specs below
