Product Info

It's right there in the name. The Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower C R Complete Mountain Bike doesn't even try and pretend: it's a runaway freight train of a bike, uninterested in anything but high speeds and challenging chunk. The latest Megatower (V2) sees an increase in travel and wheelbase, along with a slackened front end. It has become even smoother throughout all this travel, too, thanks to a redesigned shock tunnel that takes a longer-stroke shock. Combined with heavy-hitting components, these improvements make the new Megatower better in every way. This bike is true to the name. Mega!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select Rear ShockTruly worthy of the latest "super bikes" and changing up the course for rear shocks. Rampant rock gardens, greasy half exposed roots, soft banked corners, loamy goodness — if there was a Holy Grail of shock control — it would be right here with the Super Deluxe family of shocks.
