    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz HIGHTOWER R / C / 29

    Expirience with the HIGHTOWER R / C / 29 2022 The combination of VPP rear end and low-lying shock absorber has become a Santa Cruz trademark and also gives the HIGHTOWER R its typical look. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Santa Cruz. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. When it comes to the seating position, Santa Cruz chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. The frame is quite a good one. The Fully-chassis makes a very nice impression. On climbs, other bikes in the under 6000 Euro present a little better performance than the Santa Cruz Fully. With 25 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
