Designed as a dedicated steed for enduro race stages, the Megatower Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Coil Mountain Bike is the perfect tool for flying between the tape or for riders who need a long-travel rig for their favorite trails. We’re equally stoked about the V2 Megatower’s new Glovebox frame storage system as we are about its updated suspension and geometry. 165mm of lower-link VPP travel continues to provide the stable traction at speed that Santa Cruz bikes are known for, yet simultaneously sits high in the travel while climbing for an energetic pedaling platform. Size-specific chainstays (which Santa Cruz refers to as ‘rear center’) provide the perfect balance between straight lining stability and cornering maneuverability. Another key geometry update is the 77. 5-degree seat tube angle (in the low setting) which provides an ideal pedaling position for long days in the saddle.

Along with the “bigger and badder” treatment provided by the coil shock, this Megatower build also receives Maxxis tires that are beefed up with DoubleDown casing to provide exceptional puncture resistance. We wouldn’t hesitate to utilize this build for our local enduro series, or as a bruiser of a trail bike for areas with lots of sustained elevation loss. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over…
