The Hightower gives you the extra bit of confidence to let off the brakes and let 'er rip through the rough stuff. It feels well-balanced in the air and corners like a champ. At the same time, it is has impeccable trail manners and pedals efficiently, so you won't get that 'too much bike' feeling if you end up doing an extra lap or pushing your ride further into the hills. 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 the geeked out details that you need to customize your rig, including ISCG05 chain guide mount and internal cable routing for a dropper post. Lifetime warranty.
