Santa Cruz Megatower CC

Santa Cruz Megatower CC

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.

In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution - either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here.

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 around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector and ribbed chainstay protector.

Fork

Select:

Simplicity and Performance
4 clicks of low speed compression give quick access to firming up the fork for pedaling, opening up for descending, and mid settings for everything in between. Externally adjustable shim stack controlled rebound that is 100% dynamic, which means the rebound is controlled based on the speed at which oil flows through the system. The fork will react to what you throw at it and be ready for what’s next. You get an internally adjustable 3 position OTT feature that allows you to perfectly fine tune how the initial stroke feels without any mid/end stoke compromise.
Combining the stiff chassis characteristics with our exclusive features and damping design give our forks a unique ride feel unlike anything else on the market.
D2 Technology Package
The ultimate combination of simplicity and performance. This is a product aimed at the “set it and forget it” rider. It features all the buttery-smooth qualities you’ve grown to expect from DVO Suspension products in a condensed-feature package.
The  D2 platform gives you a 4-position low speed compression adjuster to quickly go from a climb setting to wide open DH. The OTT feature gives you three settings of small bump compliancy to choose from to dial the fork in at any air pressure. An easy access external rebound adjuster gives you a wide range to work with. All together you have an easy to set up, wicked enduro fork.

Select:

This new NX Eagle™ derailleur features the proven SRAM 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design.

Grips

Select:

Single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring.  A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last 38mm (1.5”) of the grip, effectively clamping onto the end of the bar to eliminate twisting.

Flared closed end for comfort, feel and security.  8mm (0.3”) of rubber with a subtle mushroom profile on the tip resists scuffing, provides comfort and adds an intuitive feel for the bar end.  (We also found it adds a healthy dose of forgiveness when clipping trees on tight trails!)

Long grip length and waffle knurl for maximum control.  A generous 125mm (4.9”) grip length (excluding lock-ring) allows plenty of room to reposition hands on differing terrain and long rides.  The moto-knurl pattern gives just the right balance of feel and grip in all conditions.

Seatpost

Select:

The world’s shortest, long travel dropper post. Get the longest travel dropper that will fit you and your bike. 

MORE DROP

More drop = More fun. The further out of the way you can get your saddle on downhills the more confidence you’ll have and the harder you can ride. The shortest stack height of any dropper, period. No other post gets your saddle lower. And with the shortest effective length of any equivalent travel post on the market, most riders can now upgrade their 125mm or 150mm post to a 170mm OneUp dropper.

TUNEABLE

Don’t get stuck between dropper sizes. The unique OneUp travel adjust shims allow you to custom tune your post by lowering the travel and extended length of your post by as much as 50mm in any increment you like. Want an oh so fashionable 128.99mm drop? You got it! Drop tuning can be done on-bike, tool free and without removing the saddle or touching a shock pump. Lowering the post travel also increases bushing overlap, which is great for heavier riders.

170mm Dropper Post - adjustable* down to 120mm

150mm Dropper Post - adjustable* down to 100mm

Saddle

Select:

The Volt is the next evolution in WTB saddles. Thin Line style compact padding borrowed from the Silverado and Devo compliment subtle curves and a melange of popular features from several of our saddles. A slight whale tail and gentle drop to the nose provide something to push against while not limiting riders to one seating position. This saddle has enough padding for all day riding comfort yet scant enough weights for XC competition gaining it endless acclaim and popularity among riders.
