Reviews

Pinkbike

Mike Levy

The ingredients seem run-of-the-mill, but the outcome is anything but.

Cons
  1. Not the absolute best at anything... but it is good at lots of things.
  2. We had issues with the derailleur, brake levers
  3. It's your money, but the price seems... pricey

The Hightower 3 gains in-frame storage and a little port to help make shock setup easier.

ENDURO Mountainbike Magazine

Peter Walker

Santa Cruz present the 2023 Hightower trail bike. We tested the GX AXS RSV model featuring their C-grade carbon and providing 145 mm travel.

Pros
  1. Storage compartment in the downtube with matching bags
  2. Intuitive, playful handling
Cons
  1. too small brake rotors
  2. Prone-to-failure tires

Danny Milner

The original Santa Cruz Hightower converted a lot of riders to 29ers, does the new version have the same significance?

Pros
  1. Everything you could want from a trail bike
Cons
  1. Missing an upper chain guide
