Santa Cruz Hightower LT
The king of the our big bikes gets bigger, and we don’t mean on the scales: we’re talking bigger days on bigger terrain with bigger margins for error. The original Hightower, offered in 29″ and 27.5″ wheels, was turned loose on Enduro courses across the country and Santa Cruz heard the feedback, particularly from the company’s Enduro World Series race team. “We want more”. The Hightower LT, newly released for 2018, is only available with 29″ wheels and a full 150 mm of travel, front and rear. The new long travel Hightower updates are all aimed at creating a faster, burlier, plusher, more controlled experience. Surprisingly, not much is sacrificed in the climb. We carry the Hightower LT because each evolution in the world of big travel, big wheel bikes has meant only one thing for SG: bigger smiles.
