THE NEW BIGGER,
With a matched set of fast-rolling 29-inch wheels, a long-travel pedigree, and a tough carbon fiber chassis, Megatower delivers the high-speed confidence of a downhill bike. At the same time, its steep seat tube angle, size-specific geometry, and Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension maintain the Mega’s mega pedaling ability. This remarkable combo makes Megatower the perfect, pedalable choice for enduro rips, backcountry gravity adventures, and downhill park laps. Oh, and it now comes with a Glovebox...

BIGGER, BADDER, BETTER
With big 29-inch wheels, a long reach, 165mm of rear Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension paired with a 170mm-travel fork, the Megatower is one big, bad monster bike. Capable on gnarly downhill terrain, the Mega's also got a pedalable pedigree to get you back to the top.
FLAT OUT AND BLIND
The Megatower's low leverage ratio provides a more damped, controlled feel at speed. Lower anti-squat reduces pedal induced firmness and provides excellent square edge bump absorption, which gives you a greater margin for error when taking blind risks on wild trails.
Downtube storage is a thing, and on Megatower you can access it beneath a panel just under the bottle cage mounts. You'll undoubtedly marvel at the reassuringly high-quality latching mechanism, not to mention all the options to carry snacks, tools, tubes, and of course, your driving gloves.
...AND SOME ORGANIZERS
Santa Cruz has accessories for your accessories–Glovebox also comes with a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse–two refined pouches for keeping your essentials organized and rattle-free.
Proportional geometry means that certain attributes are scaled up as the frame size gets larger so that whatever your stature, there is no compromise when it comes to fit. The larger the frame, the longer the Megatower's chainstay length, and the effective seat tube angle.
AIR AND COIL SHOCK COMPATIBLE
Megatower is built and tuned to run the shock type of your choice–whether you prefer air or coil, either will fit. And pro tip: If 165mm of travel isn't enough for you, you can run a longer stroke shock (65mm) to eek out 170mm of rear cush.
LEVEL-UP TO RESERVE CARBON
High-end Megatower builds include a Reserve 30 carbon wheelset that takes your riding experience to the next level. Supple and responsive, Reserves are the perfect blend of comfort and performance, and they come with a lifetime warranty.
LIFETIME WARRANTY AND SUPPORT
Like all Santa Cruz bikes, Megatower comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, and Reserve carbon rims. It also comes with free replacement pivot bearings for life, and the support of our legendary Rider Support team.
