Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon.Running either proven 29 inch wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world.

So the big question, 27.5+ or 29?

29

If straight line speed, rallying through rock gardens and sprinting out of turns is your bag, then 29 inch wheels are the big ticket. Upgrade to carbon rims and you have a precision instrument on your hands.

27.5+

When conditions get loose and the traction just ain’t there, you’ll want to reach for bigger tires. 27.5+ elevates Hightower to a whole different level, enabling you to rise above the pow, rail the soft spots and carry momentum where standard tires bog down.

No matter what size you run, geometry remains optimized thanks to a neat little High/Low setting on the upper link that flips to adjust bottom bracket height.Hightowers 67 degree head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays combine to create an altogether different class of dreadnought in any configuration.Meanwhile, 150mm of seat dropper, a water bottle mount, and internal routing reflect an armada of killer details.

135mm of VPP travel is reinforced by a 148 rear axle spacing and the kind of Nomad-syle linkage arrangement and swingarm design we reserve for the heaviest hitters in our model line up.The resulting package leaves Hightower standing head and shoulders above anything else out there.

This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as our C-level frame, but weighs about 230 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed us to use less material overall, which is what shaves off half a pound from the frame.

*Please note: 140mm fork comes standard on the 29” kits, and is exchanged for a 150mm version on the 27+ builds to keep the 67 degree head angle consistent.
