Santa Cruz Megatower 2 C GX AXS
All mountain, every mountain. The Santa Cruz Megatower 2 C GX AXS Kit full suspension mountain bike is perfectly at home in an enduro race, but just as capable at getting you back up the mountain or across some rowdy rock gardens.
The Santa Cruz Megatower 2 C GX AXS Kit delivers 170mm front and 165mm rear travel to a rough and tumble world of big hits, big trails, and big thrills.
A quick and reliable SRAM GX AXS Eagle drivetrain, and a C-level carbon frame help ensure that the Santa Cruz Megatower 2 lives up to all expectations, and the RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ rear shock and FOX 38 Float Performance Elite fork help ensure this Megatower 2 can handle whatever you and the trail throw at it.
Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower 2 is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in the Santa Cruz line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. 165mm of travel comes standard, but if you choose to run a shock with a longer, 65mm stroke, you can bump it up to 170mm.
The Megatower 2 also now has size specific chainstay lengths to optimize the geometry across the size range with no fuss or extra parts.
The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 77-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 64-degree head tube angle will come in handy. The super tidy downtube-integrated Glovebox includes a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, two refined pouches for keeping your essentials close to hand. And you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame, even with if you opt for the piggyback coil shock.
