The New Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower - Be honest, it's all about the descent

When World Champs like Greg Minnaar and Jackson Goldstone aren’t on their office bikes, they’re often throttling a Megatower for all it’s worth.

Because 165mm of VPP® lower link travel is more than enough to feel just like the Syndicate. A ±63-degree adjustable head tube angle coupled to a 170mm fork and 29-inch wheels delivers the high-speed security of a downhill bike. Yet the 78-degree seat angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega’s mega ability to climb. Retaining its reputation as the perfect choice for knocking out big gravity rides and DH park laps.

Look under the bonnet and you’ll discover a relatively low leverage ratio on the rear shock compared to our other bikes. This is engineered into the VPP kinematics to offer a more damped, controlled feel across longer travel ranges, meaningless faffing with your shock. There's a lower average leverage ratio than the previous bike for a more damped, controlled feel from the shock.

Delve further still and you’ll notice hi/lo geo fine-tunability, and even the option to use a 65mm stroke shock to boost rear travel to 170mm. Not that you’ll need it. But we’ve got you tweakers covered. Right down to an all-new Glovebox to hold your tools, spares and driving gloves.

The all-new Megatower: near V10 performance in an up-down-repeat package.
