Santa Cruz Hightower 2 AL S - Ember and Carbon

Description

If there's one bike to match your favorite mixtape, it's the Santa Cruz Hightower. With lower link shock articulation and updated adjustable geometry, this ''Engineering Best Of....'' combines some of the finest tunes to create the perfect trail partner. The Hightower has been Santa Cruz's most versatile trail bike since its introduction. It's more agile than its big-suspension brother Megatower, but more confident on technical terrain than its nimble cousin Tallboy. The Hightower scores where the trails are long and challenging, and steep climbs are rewarded with real descents. The lower baffle-controlled VPP shock creates a near-linear spring curve, absorbing shocks of all sizes while still maintaining the progressivity that originally set the V10 DH bike apart! With 140mm of travel in the rear and 150mm in the front, the Santa Cruz Hightower now gets a bit more travel than the first generation. In combination with a 65° steering angle, the bike still has a very wide comfort zone, but offers a bit more reserves when your temper gets the better of you. The Hightower also has that certain something that intensifies the experience. Santa Cruz calls it the Flip Chip. In the high setting, the bottom bracket height is slightly higher for technical pedaling and/or when plus tires are desired. In the low position, the characteristic curve is a bit more progressive to provide additional bottom-out resistance for a more aggressive ride. The bike adapts to your preferences. Speaking of preferences: There's plenty of room in the main frame for your water bottle and the famously reliable bolt-in bottom bracket. The sophisticated cable routing guarantees a better shifting performance as well as the usual easy cable routing and avoids cable abrasion. There's also a shuttle guard and impact guard on the downtube, as well as a small mudguard over the rear shock and a chainstay guard to keep things nice and quiet.
