2021 Santa Cruz Hightower


Gradually taking the best seller crown from the Bronson, the Hightower is a very similar do-it-all bike, but with 29” wheels rather than the 27.5” found on the Bronson.  Very well suited to our local Peak District trails, the Hightower is a perfect bike for the “bit of everything” riding that the vast majority of us do!
