There are many great bikes out in the world, but they're only good at one style of riding. It is rare to find a mountain bike that is good at just about everything, but when it comes to the Santa Cruz Hightower 2 C S-Kit Bike, it's all the greatest hits compiled into one bike. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. The Carbon C frame uses 150mm of travel on the front and 140mm of travel on the rear. The frame has a lower-link VPP suspension that provides a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains exceptional progressivity. It balances stiffness and weight savings in all the right places. The frame features a water bottle mount inside the main triangle, a threaded bottom bracket, a downtube protector, and a chainstay protector.
The S-Kit version of the Santa Cruz Hightower 2 C comes with a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12-speed drivetrain that includes a cassette that has a hill-crushing 10-50T gear range that makes climbing and riding in rough terrain much easier. SRAM Code R hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent stopping power so you can descend with confidence. Race Face AR Offset 30 rims are paired with Maxxis Minion DHR tires that can be set up tubeless for a smoother ride, better traction, and fewer flats. With the RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post, you'll be able to quickly lift and lower your saddle without the need to dismount your bike.
