Product Info

When all is said and done, you're not going to look back on your life and regret your decision to get the Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower C S Complete Mountain Bike. Sure, it was all a bit much, what with all that travel, those massive brakes, the in-frame storage. But mountain biking was your thing, and you wanted the best bike you could get for flying down your favorite trails at mind-numbing speeds. Santa Cruz's S builds always strike that perfect balance between reasonably too much and way too much, which is exactly where the Megatower likes to be. It was the golden age of mountain biking, and we loved it!

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

Fox 38 Float PerformanceWhen you need to go really big, reach for the 38. Optimized for 160-180mm of travel and packing the same revolutionary feature set as the 36, the 38 redefines what you think a long travel single crown fork is capable of, and sets a new benchmark for confidence, performance, and durability. This Performance model features an EVOL air spring and GRIP damper.

Drive Train

SRAM GX EagleDay in, day out, this is the Eagle ecosystem at its best. GX Eagle combines the full-featured capability of Eagle technologies, in a group that realizes the potential within every build. This is where you’ll find the best aluminum MTB crankset SRAM makes. GX Eagle has its own version of the new, 500-percent range, 10-50t cassette, for more top end speed or a more comfortable climb—should you choose to run it.

Brakes

SRAM Code RSleek, 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 Rotors | 200mmThe new CenterLine Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheelset

RaceFace AR Offset 30mm 29" Rims Laced to DT Swiss 370 HubsAll-around rad AR rims are slightly tweaked with an new asymmetrical profile. Fully dialed to be stiffer, stronger and optimally balanced, these crazy-versatile rims come in every width imaginable to cover XC to plus bikes and everything in between. These rims are laced to tough DT Swiss hubs.

Maxxis Assegai Front TireWith tall knobs that punch through dust and loam to find traction, this tire offers support and confidence on wet roots and rocks. While other tires excel only in certain conditions, the new Maxxis Assegai is built to go fast everywhere.

Maxxis Minion DHR II Rear TireA real rider's tire choice, these Minions bring a mix of rolling resistance, wear, and performance that can't be beat.

Additional Features

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper PostDon’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.
