Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower C R Complete Mountain Bike is a shredalicious carbon bike with a reasonable price tag, thanks to budget-friendly components that compliment the smooth, sexy carbon frame. It's a downhill machine that likes to dabble in climbs, thanks to the slacker head tube and steeper seat tube angles.

You've definitely seen Santa Cruz bikes on your local trails, it's time you found out what the hype is all about.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

Fox Float DPS Performance Rear ShockPerformance Series FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat.

Shock AdjustmentsLever Actuated Open, Medium, Firm Modes, Air Spring Pressure, External Rebound

The Glovebox™Seal whatever you want to carry on your ride inside your downtube. Secure and easy to access, the Glovebox™ has a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse inside, to help organize your stuff too. Simply cavernous!
