First Ride SantaCruz Hightower2

Hightower2 Update
Well what a great weekend! I managed two great rides on the new Hightower2 and I have to say WOW what a bike! Trail conditions were awesome so I did all my usual favourite trails, mostly grade 4 and 5s with some sneaky ones in the mix. This gave me a good comparison to the Hightower LT ive been riding for the last year.
The Hightower2 felt super lively and quick handling on the downs and I was able to pick the front up whenever I needed. The suspension felt super planted and dealt with the roots and of cambre with ease, shock setup was super simple and I ended up pretty much at the recommened settings at both ends.
Aside from the lower link mounted shock the geometry is the biggest difference from the old Hightower and the LT, The slacker front end with the shorter offset fork made for a stable but sharp handling front end and was really easy to turn in the tight steep stuff. I did over 2000m climbing on the bike over the weekend and the steeper seat angle was a big positive improvement over the slacker old models, this coupled with the new shock position and updated VVP makes this an absolute weapon on the climbs.
Santa Cruz have out done themselves with this bike, they have managed to merge the old Hightower and the LT together and make on amazing bike!
I cant wait to ride it again.
