Ride It With

Up Close...

The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick.

The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails.

Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in our line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration – designed for compatibility with both air (160mm fork) and coil shocks (170mm fork) – provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits.

In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second, in the rear dropouts, allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution - either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here.

The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector and ribbed chainstay protector.

Santa Cruz Megatower In the press...

We liked it, a lot. It’s one of those bikes that’s happier the faster it goes.... You really can maneuver the Megatower—even in a size XL, even with wide rims and rubber—even with 160 millimeters on either end. It responds quickly to rider input, perhaps because of how centered the rider positioning is, also due to the lively feel of the rear suspension.

BIKE MAG | March 2019

It’s time for a bold statement, we think Santa Cruz’s new rear suspension platform used by the Nomad, Bronson and now the Santa Cruz Megatower is one of the best on the market, offering lashings of grip, control and most importantly support. Combining this superb kinematic with 160 mm of travel and accurate 29” Santa Cruz RESERVE wheels means you can ride the Megatower like a total idiot, take the worst lines, challenge the gnarliest rocks – the Megatower will simply smash through, silently finding grip everywhere.
