An all new platform from Santa Cruz, the Hightower is a big, versatile, awesome all-mountain rig intended for all day fun. It is designed around versatility, switching between 27.5+ and 29" wheel sizes in a matter of moments. Finally, the bike of your dreams can be built to be whatever type of all-mountain bike you truly desire.

Close in geometry to Santa Cruz's Bronson, the Hightower gets slacker geometry, a low bottom bracket and shorter chain stays to fit in well with modern big-travel Trail and AM bikes. With 135mm of Virtual Pivot Point travel, the Hightower is all the bike you'll need to conquer any trail.

One frame for both wheel: You just swap out the wheels and fork and flip the “Toggle Chip” on the suspension linkage and you’ll be able to fit either wheel. Changing the fork and the Chip does affect the geo, allowing for the best possible position regardless of which wheel you use.
