    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz HIGHTOWER XT / C / 29

    Expirience with the HIGHTOWER XT / 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 XT its typical look. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the HIGHTOWER XT. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. The moderate seating position is likely to be the perfect middle ground for the majority of bikers. When the frame is Santa Cruz, its all about quality. The chassis is above average. On climbs, other bikes in the above 8000 Euro present a little better performance than the HIGHTOWER XT. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Santa Cruz is behind its products.
