Santa Cruz's Hightower LT Carbon C XE is made to go fast, give you a bigger margin of error, and take on the biggest mountains in the world. With a whopping 150mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 66.4-degree head angle, the Hightower LT is designed for maximum speed in the biggest mountains. It’s truly race-bred, its design the result of the demands of racing at the EWS, Crankworx, and Andes Pacifico. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents while putting you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. The increased travel means the reach is slightly (7mm) shorter than the standard Hightower, the head angle a half-degree slacker, and the seat angle a half-degree slacker, as well. The rear triangle retains the dual upright design, but adds a post-mount rear brake. The Hightower LT Carbon C XE comes equipped with a 150mm-travel Fox 36 Float fork, Fox Float Performance shock and Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain that offers solid performance in a wallet friendly package.
