Santa Cruz's beloved VPP suspension connects the Hightower's two triangles, and the third generation of the revered suspension platform delivers the same responsive, glued-to-the-trail feel that's earned it such a devoted following. In yet another nod to enduro roots, Santa Cruz took inspiration from the Nomad when positioning the suspension, keeping the link out of the way so that the Hightower's frame can accommod...
