The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick
The Megatower C is a biggest-hitting long travel 29’er. Santa Cruz described it as a modern day brawler. This bike is designed for diehard speed / adrenaline junkies, for those who want a bike that they can take to their local trail centre, and take the same bike to do the Mega Avalanche and more. It's designed to conquer all trails at speed.
The Megatower is the love child of the Hightower and Bronson, featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension and angles that mean it can still be a capable climber, but it descends with tones of stability and confidence. The Megatower is the most confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in Santa Cruz's line-up. The lower-link mounted shock has been designed to be compatible with both air and coil shocks, thus providing a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it fast and ideal for taming the longest descents and biggest of hits.
Swiss army bike... In order to make the Megatower more versatile, it has an enormous amount of adjustability. A concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progression of the rear suspension, a second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution.
