Santa Cruz Megatower C XT Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2021

The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick

The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern-day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails.

Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in the Santa Cruz line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration – designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks – provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits.

Santa Cruz Megatower C XT Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2021

The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick

The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern-day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails.

    CLEVER ADJUSTABILITY

    It has clever adjustability in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes the progressivity of the rear suspension. A second allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution - either set for play or stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for all you riders looking to tune your ride according to your needs without compromising reliability and durability.

    SMART AND SAVVY

    The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And you can still carry your full water bottle inside the frame that is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector and ribbed chainstay protector.

    SANTA CRUZ MEGATOWER CARBON FRAME

    A burly off-road presence suitable for blitzing any trail. From the longest descents like rocks, roots and jumps through to winding and grinding singletrack, it exudes an aura of undeniable off-road confidence.

    FOX 36 FLOAT PERFORMANCE ELITE 160MM FORK

    The 36 chassis gets 7000 series upper tubes to keep weight under 2kg without compromising stiffness and aftermarket forks come with Fox’s excellent finger-friendly 15QR axle.

    ROCKSHOX SUPER DELUXE SELECT+ SHOCK

    If there were a Holy Grail of shock control this would be it ladies and gentlemen.

    SHIMANO XT 12-SPEED DRIVE

    Lighter lever action, smoother overall shifting, and vastly improved upshifting, especially on the larger cogs under loads. The chainring's pointy tooth profile and the chain's directional plates offer secure engagement, smooth-rolling, and silent running.

    SHIMANO XT HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES

    Industry-standard braking just got better.  Hydraulic disc brakes are the industry benchmark for affordable high performance.

    RACE FACE ARC 29" WHEELSET WITH DT SWISS 350 HUBS

    Fully dialled to be stiffer, stronger and optimally balanced, these are some of the most versatile rims there are.

    MAXXIS ASSEGAI / MAXXIS MINION TR TYRES

    Named after a Zulu spear, it’s designed to cut through dust and loam on the toughest DH tracks. Maxxis Assegai is the signature tyre of Greg Minnaar.
