Built for big days in big terrain.




Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s truly race-bred its design the result of the demands of racing at the EWS Crankworx and Andes Pacifico.


Midway through 2016 Mark Scott came to us with a request to eke more travel out of the bike. The stock 135mm wasn’t quite enough to maintain his speed on some of the rougher tracks. Our engineering team designed a new set of links that pushed travel to 146mm at the expense of some compatibility but because Mark’s setup was a known variable we could be very precise. We machined two sets on site gave one to Mark and the other to Iago Garay a racer much more likely to take the fun line than tuck for speed.


The links went through a few iterations to find a balance of spring rate travel and shock compatibility. Toward the end of 2016 it became apparent that the best way to get the performance and travel required was to design a new swingarm to pair with the links like we did with the V10. At this point the bike got a name—Hightower LT—and we pushed the travel to a full 150mm.


Starting from the Enduro World Series in Wicklow the Santa Cruz | SRAM team have been racing on Wicklow Green production bikes—savvy internet commenters noticed the post-mount rear brake straightaway and it's also been seen under the elusive Ratboy at Peaty's Steel City DH Crankworx and Megavalanche.
