Style Quite an exciting bike this....the Replacement for the long travel or LT Tallboy has arrived and has now a few tricks up it sleeve!

It takes the evolved the geometry of the Bronson and the 5010 and re-works it for the long travel 29er platform, essentially a longer top tube, slacker head angle and shorter rear end. The 67 degree head angle is a massive 2.5 degrees slacker than the old tallboy LT and the chain stays are 15mm shorter.

Here what Santa Cruz say:

By using a Boost rear end and making maximum clearance at the rear the engineers at Santa Cruz have make a super versatile platform able to run 29er wheels or switch out to 27.5 plus wheels. This is the 29 er version and we can also supply the plus version, or you can also order the bike with both sets of wheels!

Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon. Running either proven 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5"+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world.

So the big question, 27.5+ or 29?

If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29" wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands.

When conditions get loose and the traction just ain't there, you'll want to reach for bigger tires. 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rise above the pow, rail the soft spots and carry momentum where standard tires bog down.

No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a neat little "High/Low" setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height*. Hightower's 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration. Meanwhile, 150mm of seat dropper, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details.

135mm of VPP® travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of Nomad-syle linkage arrangement and swingarm design we reserve for the heaviest hitters in our model line up. The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there.

By using a slightly-less-expensive carbon fiber, we were able to put performance within reach of more riders than ever before, lifting the race pace of World Cup athletes and privateers alike. The stiffness, durability, and strength are identical between the two materials, but the C-level carbon weighs in at about 230 grams more than the top-end, CC carbon

*Please note: 140mm fork comes standard on the 29" kits, and is exchanged for a 150mm version on the 27+ builds to keep the 67° head angle consistent.
