The bigger, more aggressive brother of the Hightower
Deriving their inspiration from the Hightower as well as the V-10, Santa Cruz birthed the Megatower to be their “most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up”. Utilizing Lower Link VPP suspension, The Megatower provides feather-light small bump sensitivity and unmatched traction. VPP is also designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks allowing for greater user customization. Talking about customization, not only is Santa Cruz offering multiple different builds of the Megatower, but they all come with Flip Chip technology integrated into the Lower Link VPP suspension. Flip Chip allows the rider to adjust their bikes geometry according to the terrain. By flipping the chip to low, you slightly reduce you headtube angle, bottom bracket height and stand-over height, which shifts your weight slightly towards the rear and lowers your center of gravity, ideal for steeper terrain. Flip the chip back to high you’re your back to flatter ground for more agility and better cornering.
Santa Cruz’s VPP suspension coupled with the S-kit’s Carbon C frame and its progressive geometry make for a mean machine. When you are ready to hit the downhill, you can rely on the 160mm Fox 36 Float Performance fork up front and RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ 160mm shock in the rear for a plush descent. When you finally need to come to a stop at the bottom, SRAM Code R Brakes with Avid Centerline 200mm rotors will ensure ample amounts of stopping power. Even when you face a grueling uphill you won’t worry knowing you’ve got 12 speeds of SRAM XG 1275 Eagle 10-50T cassette coupled with the SRAM 170mm Stylo 7k 148 DUB, 30t crankset- for a super wide range to tackle anything. To top it off, the Megatower is outfitted with Race Face AR Offset 30 29" rims and Maxxis Assegai 29"x2.5" EXO+ tubeless-ready tires, ready to take on the roughest of trails.
