Brand Spankin' New | 29" | 27.5+ | 135mm Travel

Brand new from Santa Cruz... The Hightower.

The Tallboy LTc grew up. And it's here to kick ass, take names, and shred trails.

Santa Cruz Hightower 27.5+ / Shimano Di2

Now available AT GBS

On Monday, a box arrived at GBS, along with a phone call to keep our traps shut until Tuesday. We could build it, photograph it, and get amped about the new shiny, but we couldn't tell a soul until the official release. After riding this sexy bike around a bit, maybe we don't want to share it with the world... maybe it's just too much fun and we want it all to ourselves!

Nah, that's selfish.

Why Di2? Because we're weak for shiny, that's why. Shimano's XTR Di2 is the drivetrain. It's ultra-precise, as fast as lightning, and just fun. Coupled with some beefcake 2.8" Nobby Nic tires from Schwalbe, mounted up to our new favorite--Nox Kitsuma wide carbon hoops, this bike is a beast ready to demolish your way down Lower Porcupine Singletrack, bomb through rock gardens, or just sail through whatever terrain you find before you.

To top it all off: our demos are in the mail.

Frameset:

  • Frame: Santa Cruz Hightower CC
  • Fork: RockShox Pike RCT3 140

Weight:

26.7 pounds. As. Seen. Here.

It's okay to drool.

 

A first for Santa Cruz in their short-travel bikes, they've made the Hightower even more versatile. The lower eyelet includes an offset chip: feeling the need for speed? Flip it for a lower BB, slacker angles, and easy-cruisin'. Want a little more clearance, steeper angles, and tighter turning? Flip it the other way and get a higher BB for the climbs, or tighter trails.

With Di2, your cockpit really does not get much cleaner. Two brakes, one dropper. That's about all you'll see. #soclean

Its 17.25" chainstays make for a wheelie good time while providing gobs of clearance for meaty tires.

Pivot's Mach 4 Carbon - Di2, available for demo and rental.

Ever since we first took a spin on a bike equipped with Shimano's new XTR M9050 Di2, set up with a 2x11 drivetrain and one shifter. Yes, that's right, with Di2 mountain drivetrains, you can operate your entire 2x11 or 3x11 drivetrain with a single shifter. It's phenomenal, the superb accuracy and fluid shift performance of Shimano XTR is not only improved, but you no longer need to concern yourself with how many shifts you need to make on the cassette to compensate for the difference in chainrings--it's all taken care of for you in the shift map programming.

Available to rent or demo in sizes extra-small, small, and medium, and we're working on getting a large Mach 429sl built up for those of us who wish to try this sweetness out without feeling like we're riding a BMX bike. You know you're Di-curious... Read More.

Carbon. Stiff. Trail-tuned suspension. All new.

It's here. And ready to be ridden hard, and put away wet.

Pivot Mach 429 Trail

 

The first in the country.

We received word that the 429 Trail was released... And expected ETA was mid-July. Three days later, a strange box arrived at the shop with the legendary Phoenix logo all over the box. We looked at each other confused, we hadn't ordered anything recently from Pivot. Could this... no, could it be?

It was. The first Mach 429 Trail to land in the country. Not just that, but with their stunning Shimano XTR 1x11 build, DT Swiss Carbon wheels, and the first fully Boost frame and fork to come through the shop.

 

Let's dive under the hood and see what this baby's made of...
