Santa Cruz Hightower LT

Overview

Designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains

When the Santa Cruz pro enduro racers needed just a little bit more than what the regular Hightower had to offer, they created the new Hightower LT. With an extra 15mm of rear wheel travel, and a 29’r only design, this was exactly the bike they needed to tackle the big mountains.

Rider Feedback


At first glance, this bike looks like a big-wheeled Bronson. In some ways, this is true - but it definitely has a unique character. The low standover height, and short seat tube carry over from the regular Hightower, as well as the insanely low stack height. This means a lot of space to play around with riding position.. The LT is active in it’s travel, and never harsh - using Santa Cruz’s latest VPP suspension linkage. The bike pedals better than expected, and is impressively light for it’s size. This bike will definitely give the Yeti 5.5 a run for it’s money. A bonus for taller riders is the 170mm dropper post spec’d on the XL and XXL frames.
