2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles Hightower Carbon CC 27.5+ X01 Eagle ENVE Complete Mountain Bike

 

Let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of riders that prefer loose, rock-strewn trails that consistently rob your speed with chunky impediments and soft spots. Alleviating this traction and speed-carrying problem, the Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon CC 27.5+ XO1 Eagle ENVE Complete Mountain Bike is equipped with the voluminous support and plush shock-absorption afforded by 27.5+ wheels. This plus-sized option is gaining momentum with riders encountering jarring rocks and loose soil on their local trails, as you can drastically lower tire pressure for a smooth, planted ride with gobs of traction.

One of the more unique features with the Hightower is its flip chip, which allows you to swap between 27.5+ and 29-inch wheels with minimal impact on its slackened, confidence-inspiring geometry. This is a great feature if you’re seeking a bit more versatility for enduro racing and trail riding alike. In its 27.5+ form, the Hightower accommodates 2.8-inch tires for ample traction and plushness across the rough stuff. We recommend sticking with this tire size, as larger 3.0-inch rubber may present clearance issues with certain tire manufacturers.

If the Hightower’s ability to swap between wheel sizes gives you a taste of its versatility, then the bike’s aggressively long, slackened geometry solidifies its status as a dreamy trail machine. It represents the evolution of Santa Cruz’s earlier and much loved Tallboy LT, updated with greater stand-over clearance and shortened chainstays for snappier handling. Further consider its 150/135 millimeters of travel at the front and rear for one that’s impressively capable on rowdy descents, yet never unwieldy when you’re riding across tamer trail networks.

This particular build employs Santa Cruz’s CC-level carbon, which reduces the frame’s weight by a generous 230 grams (just a tick over 8 ounces)—all without sacrificing structural stiffness or strength. This top-shelf frame is complemented by the carbon construction of an ENVE M60 Forty Plus Wheelset. This plus-sized wheelset is intended for trail and all-mountain use, offering uncompromising stiffness for cleaning technical lines with precision. And when it’s time to pedal uphill again, the XO1 Eagle drivetrain’s massive range conserves precious energy for rowdy descents and flowing berms that follow.
