Taking A Look at the Santa Cruz Hightower V3!

Although the Hightower V3 has been available on the market for over a year now, we wanted to drop a detailed video going over some of the details of the bike for anyone interested in learning about this versatile, mid-travel trail bike.

The Hightower V3 is a full 29'', 145mm rear, 150mm front travel bike made to ride on a wide variety of terrain. It has just enough travel to handle technical terrain, yet not so much travel that it steals the fun out of more chill trails. As Santa Cruz puts it, the Hightower V3 is the "mountain bike, distilled."

If you're interested in some general information about this bike, join us as we go over some details of this model and why it might be a bike worth having in your stable.
