Product Info

The answer to the dreams of hardcore riders' wishlists, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower C S Complete Mountain Bike combines 29" wheels, all-world versatility, and long-travel suspension for the most capable bike you're likely to encounter this year. Its steep seat tube works with the proven VPP® design to make for a climber that stays planted on the tech-est of climbs, without siphoning off energy through pedal bob. It flies on singletrack and rolling sections, and really comes alive on descents--160mm travel plus a 65° head angle means it'll tear up the hairiest downhills. With a suspension flip chip and the ability to lengthen its wheelbase for high-speed stability, look for this MEGA to be Making Enduro Golds Again.

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.

160mm 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.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ ShockThe all-new Super Deluxe Select+ is built for the latest breed of hard hitting enduro and trail bikes. Offering the ride control you need paired with a user-friendly threshold adjustment all rolled into a great high performance-to-value package. New Maxima Plush fluid reduces friction and noise.

Shock AdjustmentsExternal Rebound, Open / Threshold Positions, Air Spring Pressure

Lower Link Flip Chip for Geo Adjustment (+/- 3.5mm BB Height)Preserves BB height for "over-forkers" and allows even the most sensitive riders the ability to fine-tune their ride.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™SRAM Eagle™ drivetrains are the only 1x drivetrains that are fully system engineered for optimal performance. Eagle™ drivetrains are designed, tested and proven to deliver the lightest, highest-performing, most durable systems for all riders on any trail. Eagle™ technology provides an expanded, optimum, gear range that allows you to realize your bike's potential beyond where it has ever been. Every SRAM GX Eagle™ component is 100% compatible with all levels of SRAM Eagle™ drivetrain systems.

Brakes

SRAM Code R BrakesetSleek, easy to use, yet immensely powerful. Code R packs a winning punch with a reliable DirectLink™ lever mated to Code’s new oversized four-piston caliper. SRAM’s signature ergonomics are supplemented by the tool-free reach adjust for a fit to each riders’ needs, to unleash Code’s superior braking power, consistency and modulation.

Avid CenterLine RotorsThe new CenterLine Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Race Face AR Offset 30 Rims Laced to DT Swiss 370 HubsAsymmetric rim profile improves spoke tension balance and overall wheel build quality and durability. The rim extrusion has also been improved to increase impact performance for more aggressive applications.

Maxxis Assegai TiresThe Maxxis Assegai tire is named after the iron-tipped spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa. Greg Minnaar, a native of South Africa, thought it was a fitting name for a tire ready to do battle on the mountain. The tall knobs punch through dust and loam to find traction, but also offer support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.
