FULL SUSPENSION – TRAIL
SANTA CRUZ HIGH TOWER CS
THE HIGHTOWER HAS PROVEN TO BE OUR DO-IT-ALL BIKE SINCE ITS INCEPTION. MORE AGILE THAN ITS BIG BROTHER THE MEGATOWER AND MORE AT EASE ON THE STEEP SLOPES THAN ITS COUSIN THE TALLBOY, THE HIGHTOWER EXCELS WHEN THE PATH TAKEN BRINGS TOGETHER THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS AND WHEN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DESCENTS ARE PAID FOR AT THE PRICE OF LONG ASCENTS.
The VPP “lower-link” suspension provides a rather linear damping curve, which means that it swallows any shock while keeping the progressiveness usually reserved for our downhill bike, the V10!
140mm of rear travel associated with 150mm of the front allow the Hightower to take an additional step in terms of capacity compared to the first generation. Associated with a more flat 65.3 ° steering angle, the Hightower always fits into a relative comfort zone with a touch of madness when the situation becomes more tense.
Finding the right balance between rigidity and weight gain in the right place is a trademark for Santa Cruz and the Hightower claims it even stronger. The most advanced carbon frame provides flawless control, follows the terrain perfectly and reacts immediately to each movement of the pilot while limiting the effects of pedaling.
The Hightower also has the famous “Flip-Chip”. In the high position, the bottom bracket rises, ideal for technical and rocky roads and / or if you use Plus tires. In the low position, the damping curve is more progressive to provide even more resistance at the end of the stroke. Whatever your mood, the tone of the Hightower can adapt to your tastes.
Speaking of good taste, there is of course room on the frame to carry a can and the threaded bottom bracket provides more convenience. The internal passage of the ducts has been reworked to improve the performance of the transmission, allow simple installation and avoid any friction on the frame. In addition, there is protection for pick-up transport, effective protection under the frame, a shock absorber mudguard and basic protection which ensures absolute silence.
