Santa Cruz entered the world of 29” wheel enduro mountain bikes with the original Megatower in 2019, a bike that immediately set a new standard in bikes chasing speed over challenging terrains. We now see the launch of the updated Megatower V2, further refined, tweaked and adjusted to push ever faster. A Megatower brings descending performance as close as is possible to the DH race rig, the V10, and retains the ability to pedal back up. Quite simply - up, down, repeat.

165mm rear travel utilises the famed Santa Cruz VPP (virtual pivot point) suspension linkage for consistent, supportive ride feel. A lower overall leverage ratio (thanks to a longer 62.5 stroke shock) provides more damping support for aggressive riding and a smooth progression curve with improved resistance to bottoming-out. Further adjustment is possible via the flip-chip system that enables you to switch between Hi and Lo settings to drop the BB a little lower and slacken the headtube angle for those days when things are extra steep and speedy. Geometry is balanced across the size range via matched chain-stay lengths, ensuring all riders are getting the same Megatower experience.

The Megatower V2 has a handy glovebox fitted to the downtube with a surprising amount of storage space. Also included is a Santa Cruz branded tool wallet and tube purse.

The Megatower is manufactured in Santa Cruz C and CC grade carbon. The CC shaves a little weight and adds touch of extra stiffness to the already impressive C spec. As you would expect the Megatower 2023 is covered by Santa Cruz's fantastic lifetime warranty and lifetime pivot bearing replacement policy.

Available in a range of specifications, as well as the option, at certain spec levels, to choose between air or coil shock and even add an amazing set of Reserve carbon wheels. 

As a bike that represents the pinnacle of what is capable of engineering in the world of mountain biking, anyone who is looking for a hyper-fast, terrain crushing race rig need look no further than a Santa Cruz Megatower.

          Nice bike, would recommend if you’re due an upgrade!

          Overall very lovely bike, stable, agile, handles very well. Really good service from biketart, responsive and kept me up to date with everything. The only slight downside is that it came with centreline rotors, rather than the HS2 pictured and when I asked I was told they’d only do that on USA models… but that’s not true, apart from that, good service and really liking the bike.

          Amazing bike thing is silent no rattles at all just what you’d expect for the price. Biketart is everything you want from and online bike shop fast delivery on my bike and people were quick and happy to respond to my emails. Bike suspension setup on the Santa Cruz website is spot on suspension is amazing and the sram codes are some of the best brakes ive ever used wish it had a different dropper as the reverb is awful in the cold but is what it is.
