Santa Cruz Hightower LT
The Hightower LT is a bike that will confidently take you anywhere you’ve got the ambition to go. Born from the rigors of the pro enduro racing circuit, the LT version of the popular Hightower sports 150mm of VPP suspension, and a stable-but-nimble geometry. With 29” wheels and close to 6” of travel - there’s no trail you can’t conquer. Getting to the top of the mountain is no struggle either. The 73.7º seat tube angle keeps your weight centered, while the refined suspension linkage and wide-range gearing propel you up the steepest climbs with surprising ease.

“I’m a huge fan of Santa Cruz bikes and spent the whole of last year on the LT. The VPP suspension is super plush, and the 29” wheels just give such a huge boost in confidence in rough stuff, and especially at high speeds. I sold my LT at the end of the season to explore other options, but the It’s looking like there will be another Hightower LT in my future!”
