Santa Cruz Hightower Alloy R – To order
A benchmark 140mm travel 29″ wheel trail bike with superb build quality and a long standing pedigree
The Santa Cruz Hightower Alloy has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than the shorter-travel Tallboy, the Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some serious climbs.
The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it soaks up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for Santa Cruz's V10 downhill bike! The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model.
