Built for big days in big terrain.
Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon. Running either proven 29 wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ standard Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride no matter where you are in the world.
So the big question 27.5+ or 29?
29If straight line speed rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag then 29” wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to the new Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands.
27.5+When conditions get loose and the traction just ain’t there you’ll want to reach for bigger tires. 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level enabling you to rise above the fray rail the soft spots and carry momentum where standard tires bog down.
No matter what size you run geometry remains optimized thanks to a “High/Low” setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height*. Hightower’s 67° head angle longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration. Meanwhile 150mm of seat dropper a water bottle mount and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details.
135mm of VPP® travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of linkage arrangement and swingarm design we reserve for the heaviest hitters in our model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there.
*Please note: 140mm fork comes standard on the 29” kits and is exchanged for a 150mm version on the 27+ builds to keep the 67° head angle consistent.
