Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower C S Complete Mountain Bike combines 29" wheels, all-world versatility, and long-travel suspension for monster trail performance. Its steep seat tube works with the proven VPP® design to make for a climber that stays planted on the techiest 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 a 10mm of dropout adjustment, you can customize this as conditions and terrain warrant.

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 ShockSuper 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. They even threw in Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction and silence noise.
