A downhill bike that goes everywhere

Seriously. The Megatower’s big wheels, long-travel and tough carbon fiber chassis delivers the high-speed security traits of a downhill bike. Yet the relatively steep seat angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega’s mega pedaling ability, elevating its reputation as the perfect choice for big gravity rides and DH park laps.

Features

Santa Cruz Megatower Mountain Bike

Glovebox

Place everything you need for a ride beneath the reassuringly high-quality latch and panel in the downtube, including your driving gloves. The Glovebox also comes with a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, two refined pouches for keeping your essentials close to hand.

Full carbon C and CC frame options

CC frames use the very best materials and production processes available. Our C Carbon frames have the same features but the trade off for a little less $ is a little more weight. Both versions are made in our own factory, are just as strong and stiff as one another, and have a lifetime warranty.

Steeper seat angle

The steep seat angle puts the rider in the right place for scaling the steepest pitches to get to the wildest descents. It gets progressively steeper on the biggest sizes so everyone sits in the right spot.

165mm VPP travel

A relatively low leverage ratio offers a more damped, controlled feel across longer travel ranges and easier setup.

Coil and water compatibility

The option to run large body shocks (like a coil), a lower-link flip chip and still able to fit a water bottle inside the front triangle.

Santa Cruz Megatower Mountain Bike

Longer travel?

165mm travel as standard but if you choose to swap to a longer stroke (65mm) rear shock you can bump it up to 170mm.

Details Matter

The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.

Proportional geo

The Megatower's chainstay length is matched to the frame size so every rider, no matter their height, gets the same balanced geometry.
