Its butted aluminum frame and RockShox Monarch RL shock gives you 100mm of rear travel, while a 120mm-travel RockShox Recon fork floats across rock gardens. The wide, lightweight 29-inch WTB wheels fly up climbs and optimize the traction of the Maxxis Ardent and Ikon tires so you can fly through the flow and grip with confidence in loose corners. SRAM serves up 11 nicely spaced speeds with outstanding 1x chain retention. SRAM also provides hydraulic brakes that deliver the well-modulated braking you need to carry more speed more of the time. With the stiff Kona cockpit and a Trans-X Dropper dropper post, you'll blow right past your buddy's fastest Strava time.

At the same time, it has impeccable trail manners and pedals efficiently, so you won’t get that ‘too much bike’ feeling if you end up doing an extra lap or pushing your ride further into the hills. The C S build elevates your game on the trail. Its carbon C frame is of the same pedigree that proved carbon’s place in the world of mountain biking, offering unmatched durability and reliability. The S build comes stock with burly Race Face ARC rims laced to DT 350 hubs for a tough, smooth-spinning wheelset that lowers rotating mass. But, you can also upgrade to Santa Cruz’s Reserve carbon wheels, unrivaled in the world of carbon mountain wheels. A 140mm Fox 36 Float fork and a Fox DPS shock pair well with Santa Cruz's VPP suspension. You’ll appreciate the SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain’s massive 12-gear range and crisp shifts, allowing exploration of the steepest, most technical terrain out there.

Matched with a 150mm fork, the 29in-wheeled LT is traveled-up and pared-down for pure performance. The Hightower LT Carbon C S build features a great selection of components designed for the rigors of trail use. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and Code R brakes offer seamless shifting and precise braking control, and a tubeless-ready Race Face wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Minion tires puts down meaty traction for dependable grip at speed. For even better acceleration and response upgrade to the Santa Cruz Reserve 30 Carbon wheelset and crush your personal bests everywhere you ride. Suspension travel is controlled by a Fox 36 fork and Fox Float DPS shock, offering a stiff chassis with big-hit chops. A Race Face cockpit, RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost, and WTB Silverado Pro saddle finish the build.
