Santa Cruz Megatower - 2021/22
Santa Cruz Megatower is the beautiful result of combining big wheels and their biggest hitting suspension system. The Megatower caters as much to the racers and rugged riders, as it does to the recreational rider looking to own their home trails.
With its design roots inspired by the Hightower- and now with lower link driven VPP suspension drawn from the V10, the outcome is endless riding possibilities! Also, it's considerably the most capable 29er trail bike in Santa Cruz's lineup. The lower-link mounted shock is compatible with either air (160mm fork), or coil shocks (170mm fork) providing a progressive shock rate with incredible bottom out resistance. Get gnarly on the rowdiest descents and do it with full confidence.
The confidence from the Megatower comes from all of its hidden adjustability. A well hidden flip chip sat in the lower-link, allows bottom bracket adjustment to height, and changes the rear suspension progressivity. In the rear dropouts, there's a second chip, which gives 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length- ultimately dialing in the rider's rear weight distribution. It gives the preference for playfulness, or stability.
