You lie in bed at night and dream of a bike that can really do it all—climb the tallest backcountry passes with ease, tear through the rootiest, rockiest tracks, and slingshot out of corners when you get on the gas. Wake up meet Santa Cruz's Hightower CC Frameset. It's CC-carbon construction is as light, responsive, and strong as it gets, while the 135mm VPP suspension, compliments of the RockShox Monarch rear shock, annihilates any and all terrain that gets in your way. These combine to give the Hightower the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon and seamlessly adapt to the trails and style you ride, from the rocky peaks of the Dolomites to the rain forest of British Columbia. The headtube angle and longer reach combine to create a dreadnought that can roll over anything that dare lay in your path.
