Shoulders Above Anything!
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?
If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29" wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands.
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 pow, rail the soft spots and carry momentum where standard tires bog down.
No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a neat little "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, ISCG-05 mount, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details.
135 mm of VPP¨ travel is reinforced by a 148 Boost rear axle spacing and the kind of Nomad-style linkage arrangement and swingarm design Santa Cruz reserve for the heaviest hitters in their model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there.
