There’s no better trail beast to help you find your flow than the Hightower A R. Whether you’re riding loose or pumping the impossible ascents, this MTB’s geometry has been redesigned to tackle even more radical executions than ever before.

Crafted from a hearty aluminum, Santa Cruz’s famous lab artisans are the world’s MTB foremost manufacturing authority. Featuring the 140mm Travel VPP™ suspension combined with the edgy RockShox Yari RC 150mm fork, you’ll get extreme travel progression on every inch of trail you ride. In addition, this MTB features a state-of-the-art flip chip that gives you more height for complex trails and additional bottom-out resistance to balance your ride.

Featuring the SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, you’ll get a wide range of gears with 12-speed execution. For unflinching stopping power, the SRAM Guide R brakes offer hydraulic disc brakes along with the Avid Centerline rotors for superior modulation and responsiveness.
