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+ Rear ShockA shock that does for rear suspension what the Pike did for forks, the Super Deluxe Select+ has a new damper and bushing layout, eliminating friction. On trail, this means increased traction and precise tracking.

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.

Dropout Flip ChipAllows 10mm chainstay length adjustment.

Bolt-On Shuttle Guard/Downtube Protector + Shock FenderTo ward off wayward rocks and the sandpaper effect of tailgate transport. The integrated fender works to keep crud out of the suspension.

Internal Carbon TubesEnsure precise and hassle-free routing of derailleur and seat post cables.

Bottle Cage MountWithin the front triangle, fits piggyback shocks.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™ DrivetrainSRAM Eagle™ drivetrains are the only 1x drivetrains that are fully system engineered for optimal performance.

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 29" Rims Laced to DT 370 HubsA light and tough alloy wheel made for the demands of the EWS Enduro series, these are trail-tested to be durable and responsive. At 30mm internal width, they pair well with today's wider trail tires.

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II | Rear TireThe trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!

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.
