Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon CC X01 SDU 29" Mountain Bike 2020
- Brands Santa Cruz
- Product Code: MCT-P669
- Availability: In Stock
Suitable for the longest descents and the roughest of paths the Santa Cruz Megatower Carbon CC X01 SDU 29" Mountain Bike is the most robust of the brand's trail bike offerings. Merging velocity-preserving 29er wheels, advanced composites and big-hitting suspension, the Megatower instils unfaltering off-road confidence.
The frame utilises Santa Cruz's highest level CC carbon and configures it in a pattern according to the varying stresses and strains experienced across the tube sections during harsh, high impact riding scenarios. The VPP lower-link-mounted suspension design is integrated into the chassis to promote increased trail traction, even over highly technical terrain, via its highly progressive shock rate. The main frame is then joined in unison by the FOX 36 Float Performance Elite fork, with its 160mm of plush cushioning further refining the ride by increasing trail composure and accuracy.
An already balanced geometry, ideal for climbing or descending, is supplemented by two Flip Chips that are situated in the rear suspension unit and the rear dropouts. By adjusting these the rider can fine-tune the ride characteristics in line with the forthcoming trail conditions.
The 29-inch wheels naturally afford momentum preservation and comprise the hardy and reliable Race Face alloy rims with the smooth-spinning, low maintenance DT 350 hubs. The off-centre drilling of these rims equalises spoke tensions and this, along with the boost hub configuration, leads to an ultimately more durable wheelset.
A vast array of gear ratios are afforded by the 12-speed cassette, making any landscape accessible and these are selected with accuracy and reliability by the SRAM X01 12-speed groupset. Rider to bike effort is translated with efficiency by the SRAM X01 Eagle crankset and its partnering, oversize DUB axle before a fully hydraulic brake setup grants modulated stopping power.
The RockShox Reverb dropper seatpost and Santa Cruz carbon handlebar then crown the build to result in an ultimately hardy but tremendously swift off-road soul.
