Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon CC SRAM X01 / XX1 29" Custom Bike - 2018

Select Santa Cruz Hightower Frame

Details

The Santa Cruz Hightower is a new trail frame that replaces the popular Tallboy LT and makes use of Boost 148 spacing, allowing riders to choose between 29 and 27.5+ wheel platforms. The Hightower is Santa Cruz's most versatile bike, seamlessly adapting to the trails you ride, running 29-inch wheels or the new 27.5-inch plus tire size. No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized with a "High/Low" flip chip setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height. 135mm of VPP suspension travel is reinforced with 148x12 rear axle spacing, plus Nomad-style linkage arrangement and swingarm design. Santa Cruz put a lot of emphasis on the suspension performance and ride characteristics of their VPP suspension design with tune ability of shock rates for individual designs, superb pedaling and bump absorption characteristics. The Hightower frame comes with all of the geeked out details that you need to customize your rig, including ISCG05 chain guide mount and internal cable routing for a dropper post. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as the C-level frame, but weighs about 230 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed Santa Cruz to use less material overall, which is what shaves off half a pound from the frame. Lifetime warranty.

Frame: High-Grade Carbon CC chassis with massive chainstays and rear triangle, tapered head tube, forged upper link, 15mm aluminum pivot axles (2 lower-1 upper) rotating on angular contact bearings, titanium hardware, grease ports, replaceable dropouts, 148x12 rear thru axle and 135mm of Next Generation VPP suspension. Shock: Fox Float Factory DPS Kashima Frame Weight: 5.88 lbs (size LG). Recommended Fork Travel: 140-150mm. Wheel Size: 29-inch and 27.5 Plus. Seatpost: 31.6mm

Select 29" Fork, Hightower

Details

The burly all-mountain Fox 36 Float is the ultimate shredding and enduro racing fork. The FIT4 damper and FLOAT air spring enhances the open bath technology and offers an incredibly wide range of low-speed compression and rebound adjustments, providing better small bump compliance and reduced friction for improved trail performance that instills confidence and control. Now featuring an EVOL air spring and updated upper tubes for unparalleled small bump sensitivity, the 36 is even smoother than before. The FIT4 damper provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions - Open, Medium, and Firm - to adapt to varying trail conditions. The Fox Factory 36 forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjust in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences. The EVOL air spring system is lighter and reduces the force to initiate travel, providing excellent small bump compliance for all riders and pressure settings. The super-slick Kashima coated fork stanchions are hard-wearing, increasing shock smoothness and sensitivity.

The SRAM CN-PCXX1 Chain 11-speed represents the latest breakthrough in a long line of precise, light-weight chains from SRAM. It's signed to deliver the greatest strength and reliability to a drivetrain that doesn't have to make compromises for front shifts. The XX1 chain has 4 times the elongation (wear) resistance to their 10-speed chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength, and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The XX1 chain lasts longer and is just as strong. (118 link)

Select Front Mountain Brake

Details

The new SRAM Guide RSC Disc Brake is packed with ride-enhancing, performance features that make every new trail a trusted old friend. The brand new design features SwingLink for more positive pad engagement, silky-smooth modulation and better lever-feel. Tool-free reach and contact point adjustment allows you to customize your lever throw preference, while the smooth lever pivot bearings and SRAM's new timing port closure provides dependable braking power and consistency on every ride.

(Front or Rear)

Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
