Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon CC XX1 AXS Reserve
$10,499.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. This Hightower CC XX1 AXS Reserve brings together the best of what's available now in the bike industry. SRAM's XX1 AXS drivetrain provides flawless electronic shifting throughout the 12-speed range, while Code RSC four-piston brakes stop you in the most demanding conditions. A RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork, complemented by a Super Deluxe Select Ultimate shock keep you firmly planted through the rough stuff while handling big hits with nary a flinch. Santa Cruz's Reserve 30 Carbon rims come standard on this build, backed by i9 Hydra hubs and venerable Maxxis Minion DHR2 rubber for confident tracking through the chunder and quick acceleration out of the hole. A Reverb Stealth dropper, i9 A35 stem, and Santa Cruz AM Carbon 800 x 35mm bar complete this dream build.
Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon CC XX1 AXS Coil Reserve
$10,499.00
The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails. Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration – designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks – provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution - either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And, you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector and ribbed chainstay protector. - Carbon CC frame - Fox 36 Float Factory 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Coil Ultimate rear shock - Santa Cruz Reserve 30 Carbon rims and i9 Hydra hubs - 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post - MRP AMg V2 Alloy chainguide

Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC XX1 Reserve
$10,399.00
If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it. The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre-bending folk hero. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design, this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But, because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. And, the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on... Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Knowing your answer, we mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short-offset fork, something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. And, the radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side. Build Highlights - RockShox Pike Ultimate 130mm fork - FOX Float Factory DPS Kashima rear shock - Santa Cruz Reserve 27 29 carbon rims - I9 Hydra hubs - Maxxis Minion tires - 12-speed SRAM XX1 AXS electronic drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost
Santa Cruz Blur Carbon CC XX1 Trail Reserve
$10,299.00
Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur does it all without compromise. No matter how demanding your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. Make no mistake, at just 2060g, this is our lightest-ever 100mm full suspension frame. The ultra efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got more thrust-on-demand than SpaceX. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to our World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front-end it delivers a lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to shoot through those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon. - Carbon CC frame - FOX Step-Cast 34 Float Factory, 110mm fork - FOX Float Factory Kashima DPS rear shock - Santa Cruz Reserve 25 Carbon Rims with DT 240 hubs - Maxxis Rekon tires - 12-speed SRAM XX1 AXS electronic drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost

Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in Santa Cruz's line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration — designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks — provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom-out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe, it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second modular point in the rear dropouts allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution — either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector, and ribbed chainstay protector. The Megatower 2.0 Carbon CC X01 Reserve features an upgraded wheelset built with Santa Cruz Reserve 30 carbon rims, for superior stiffness and weight savings.
Santa Cruz Highball Carbon CC XTR Reserve
$8,299.00
The Highball is Santa Cruz's flagship carbon hardtail race thoroughbred, and a dark horse in XC versatility. More capable than a pure endurance bike, and more composed than most XC race-rigs, the Highball has evolved to be easier to ride harder for longer. Santa Cruz fine-tuned the carbon layup process around the seatstays, giving it a bridgeless design that curbs trail chatter. Coupled with a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package takes the “hard” out of hardtail riding. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far. Santa Cruz went all-in with the Highball Carbon CC XTR. You get Shimano's new 12-speed wide-range XTR drivetrain, XTR brakes, and a Fox 32 Factory Step Cast fork for performance that complements your drive to be the best. Santa Cruz Reserve 25 Carbon rims paired to legendary DT Swiss 240 hubs provide the best in lightweight durability and are shod with Maxxis Aspen tires for predictable traction and low rolling resistance. An SBC XC Carbon Flat bar, Syntace LiteForce stem, and Syntace P6 Carbon HiFlex seatpost topped with a WTB Silverado Carbon saddle finish this race-ready cross country rig, giving you everything you need to blaze the way to a podium finish.
Santa Cruz Hightower Carbon CC XO1
$7,099.00 - $8,299.00
Our greatest hits compiled into one bike—just hit play. If ever a bike resembled your most cherished mix tape compilation, the Hightower is it. Featuring our lower-link mounted shock design, updated, adjustable geometry, this “Engineering Best Of...” assembles some of our biggest design pleasers into one belter of a road-trip companion. The Hightower has been a does-it-all-well trail bike since its inception. More maneuverable than its longer-travel sibling, the Megatower, and more at home in the steep-and-chunky than its snappy cousin Tallboy, Hightower excels when the route covers ‘all points in between,’ and descents come courtesy of some big-ass climbs. The VPP suspension’s lower-link-mounted shock creates a nearly linear leverage curve, meaning it mops up bumps of all sizes and maintains the kind of progressivity normally reserved for our V10 DH bike! 140mm of rear travel complemented by a 150mm front end gives Hightower just a bit more front and rear travel over the first generation model. Combined with a slacker 65-degree head tube angle, the Hightower still sits squarely in the Goldilocks zone, but with a touch more “Get me out of here!” capability when the porridge gets too hot! Balancing stiffness and weight savings in all the right places is a hallmark of all Santa Cruz carbon frames and the Hightower flies the flag yet higher. The advanced composite chassis tracks well across all trail surfaces, holds a line, and is reactive to rider directions while isolating pedal-influenced inputs. The Hightower also has a bonus disc to heighten the experience—the flip chip. In the High setting, the BB height is a little higher for those tricky tech trails and/or when Plus sized tires are required. In the Low position the shock rate is more progressive, to provide additional bottom-out resistance. Whatever mood you’re in, the tone of the Hightower can be adapted to meet your individual taste. And speaking of taste, there’s a room for a water bottle inside the main frame and a threaded BB for convenience. There’s refined cable routing for better shifting performance, simpler installation, and no cable rub. On top of that, there’s a tailgate shuttle guard, downtube protector, shock fender, and noise-canceling chainstay protector keeping things quiet. The lifetime frame warranty, lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy, and lifetime guarantee on the optional Reserve carbon wheels assures you that the Hightower will keep delivering the hits for years to come. This Hightower CC X01 build is for those who prioritize performance and have the chops to put their rig through its paces. It features a RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork, complemented by a Super Deluxe Select Ultimate shock and your choice of rims: either Santa Cruz's own Reserve 30 Carbon or Race Face's ARC Offset 30. SRAM's X01 Eagle drivetrain is at the ready, backed by Code RSC 4-piston brakes for navigating the super rowdy stuff. A Reverb Stealth dropper, Race Face Aeffect R stem, and Santa Cruz AM Carbon 800 x 35mm bar complete this all-business build.
Santa Cruz V10 Carbon CC DH X01
$8,299.00
At the 2017 World Cup season opener in Lourdes, Loris Vergier, Luca Shaw, and Greg Minnaar qualified 1, 3, and 6 aboard the ‘controversy machine’—a V10 with a new swingarm rolling on 29-inch wheels. The clouds broke open before the top qualifiers, soaking the track, and the question of technological supremacy would have to wait…for five weeks, when Greg Minnaar climbed to the top step at Ft. William for the seventh time. Over the next winter, using what we learned during the 2017 race season, we set about designing an entirely new V10—longer reach, better shock rate, and better frame and cable protection. All three frame sizes (and Reserve carbon DH wheels) were designed and manufactured in time for a week of testing before the Ft. William World Cup in 2018. Greg crashed in those sessions, breaking his arm, and effectively ending his season. A few days later, Luca qualified first and Loris third on the new bike. Loris put down a scorcher in the finals that only fellow Frenchman Amaury Pierron could top, but Luca flatted high on course and had to cruise down. The new school had arrived, and they had new wheels. Testing continued throughout the 2018 season, usually in the form of link sets designed to tweak the shock rate or make minor alterations in geometry. We had the big variables figured out, but fine-tuning the suspension under the Syndicate during World Cup season guaranteed regular, high-level feedback and lots of high-stakes puzzling. The result is perhaps the most refined suspension performance available outside of a World Cup pit. That brings us to now—kind of. Pairing 29-inch wheels with 215mm of travel makes a juggernaut of a race bike, but racing isn’t everything. Depending on the type of trails or riding style you’re into, breaking out the biggest artillery might not be ideal. Rider height also looms large when deciding which wheel size is optimal and a lot of people may opt for smaller wheels. So we decided to make a 27.5 V10, too. No compromises, no gimmicks, no shortcuts—it was designed in parallel to the 29er V10 as an original suspension platform and chassis. The 27.5 bike comes in Small, Medium, and Large, while the 29 comes in Medium, Large, and XL. Make your choice according to your size or riding style, and you’ll be the recipient of every bit of work and puzzling that’s gone into the Syndicate’s race bikes. The most successful bike in downhill history shows no signs of slowing down.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon CC XO1 Reserve
$8,199.00
If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it. The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre-bending folk hero. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design, this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But, because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork, the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. And, the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on... Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike? Knowing your answer, we mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short-offset fork, something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk. And, the radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop), and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side. Build Highlights - Carbon CC frame - RockShox Pike Select+ 130mm fork - FOX Float Performance Elite DPS rear shock - Santa Cruz Reserve carbon 29-inch rims - Maxxis Minion tires - 12-speed SRAM X01 drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost

The ultra efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got more thrust-on-demand than SpaceX. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to our World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front-end it delivers a lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to shoot through those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon. - Carbon CC frame - FOX Step-Cast 34 Float Performance Elite, 110mm fork - FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock - Choice of Race Face ARC Offset 25 rims or Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims - 12-speed SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain - RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost
