Santa Cruz Hightower LT Carbon C S Reserve Bike 2019
Big wheels meets big travel
How do you make the already popular Hightower even better? You beef up the travel to 150mm and make it capable of dominating the Enduro World Series. The Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the gnarliest of conditions. Its design is the result of the demands of prestigious events such as 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 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 on the LT, and there is 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.
Santa Cruz’s C level carbon frames offer a high level of performance with outstanding strength and stiffness at a minimal weight penalty when compared to their CC level frames. Adding to the frames refinements are internal cable routing that maintain a sleek appearance while shielding your cables from the elements to help keep your shifting smooth. ICSG-05 tabs let you run your favorite chainguide, and water bottle cage mounts, because well, every bike should have water bottle cage mounts.
The Reserve version of this S build features Santa Cruz’s lightweight and extremely tough Reserve Carbon Wheels. These wheels really show off Santa Cruz’s carbon expertise, and they back it with a lifetime warranty.
The Hightower LT C S Reserve is outfitted with a host of capable components that will have you dominating the enduro course. You will enjoy the crisp shifts and plentiful 12-speed gear range of the SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain. When it comes time to slow things down, SRAM Code R hydraulic disc brakes will get you slowed down quickly with predictable control. Fox Float Performance suspension is smooth over the chop, and easily sucks up the big hits. The Santa Cruz Reserve carbon wheels wrapped in Maxxis Minion rubber supply the traction and confidence needed to mash through rock gardens and rail high speed corners. Topped off with a capable cockpit and Rock Shox Reverb dropper post, the Hightower LT is ready to tackle any trail.
