Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon C R 29" Mountain Bike 2020
The Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon C R 29 Mountain Bike is the burliest trail steed within the brand’s range. A coalition of an advanced composite frame, big-hitting suspension and large-diameter 29-inch wheels provide any rider, from hardened racer through to enthusiast, with unfaltering confidence with which to attack the toughest of off-road terrain.
The full carbon frame is constructed with a technical lay up to grant an accomplished blend of responsiveness, trail feel, and rough ground compliance. This advanced chassis is complemented by its integrated VPP lower-link-mounted suspension unit that donates ultimately composed levels of damping that in turn grant amplified amounts of trail traction and bottom-out resistance. The RockShox Yari RC fork then supplements this plush and secure sensation with its equable cushioning awarding increased trail accuracy and confidence.
A 76-degree seat tube is implemented within the chassis design to provide a high power riding position for thundering along fire roads or winching up climbs while the 65-degree head angle grants unflappable but reactive handling on the fastest of descents. This balance, however, can be fine-tuned via the Flip Chips that are situated within the rear linkage and the rear dropouts. User-configurable, these neat devices fine-tune the ride characteristics allowing for a customisable ride depending on the trail requirements ahead.
A 29-inch wheelset rolls through the terrain, rather than over, such is its momentum-preserving properties. It comprises the robust, reliable WTB alloy rims and the smooth-rolling SRAM MTH hubs to result in a solid and dependable wheelset that will perform no matter the ground.
Gear changes are charged to the SRAM NX Eagle groupset with this flicking through the 12-speed cassette with aplomb. Efficient forward drive is then translated by the stiff crank arms and oversized DUB axle before a hydraulic brake configuration bestows unruffled stopping in any conditions.
A Race Face dropper post and E13 bar and stem alliance then finalise an impressively comprehensive feature list.
