Product Info

With a full X01 drivetrain and the best in suspension from RockShox, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower CC X01 Complete Mountain Bike is ready for its cover shot. The kind of bike and build you're likely to see in the pits at the EWS, this is a 160mm VPP®-travel 29er that's made for riders who call trails "tracks," who relish the climbs as well as the descents, and who log enough miles to threaten their employment status. The Megatower is an impressive bike with any components, but this build is casting a shadow that's going to make it very hard for any other bike to escape.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

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 Ultimate Rear ShockNo-compromise damping, with precise compression and rebound adjustments to dial in a podium-worthy ride – with the precise ride tuning abilities of an air spring.

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 X01 Eagle™ DrivetrainThe X01 Eagle™ drivetrain signals an exciting new era of freedom and the next level of uncompromising performance for enduro racers and aggressive trail riders. Watching the world’s best racers use their parts to battle against nature, physics and time itself, has inspired SRAM to supply them with the most advanced tools we can develop. X01 Eagle™ takes everything you love about SRAM's pioneering 1x drivetrains and increases its wear life, toughness, precision, smooth and silent operation. Add to that the 10- to 50-tooth, 12-speed, Eagle™ cassette, and you have a range of gears that gives you the freedom to enjoy the benefit of 1x in any terrain, any location and at any speed. X01 Eagle™ is drivetrain freedom—how you exploit it is up to you.

Brakes

SRAM Code RSC BrakesetCode RSC is built from the elements that made Guide a benchmark in contemporary brake design and performance, and delivers an extra 15% power to shine in all heavy duty applications. SwingLink™ and Lever Pivot Bearings ensure a smooth and progressive feel at the lever, while the additional 30% positive fluid volume ensures consistent performance even when braking harder, more frequently or with a heavier mass to slow down.

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 350 28h 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.
