Product Info

This is the one. The Santa Cruz Bicycles Megatower 2 C GX AXS Coil Complete Mountain Bike is likely the build you'd end up with if you got one of the other models. A coil shock and heavier tires get you to the front of the line at the bike park and shuttle zones, fully embracing the bonkers spirit of the new Megatower - brakes real big, travel real big. With its monstrous 38 and a coil rear shock, you're on the starting line with a fullface helmet, tools and snacks squirreled away in the cavernous Glovebox™. Wearing goggles, at least. Enduro ready. And for the record: GX AXS is exactly the same as XX1, just with a metal derailleur cage instead of carbon. This right here is a precision sledgehammer of a bike. Brapp!

Product Details

Key Features

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Travel170mm Front / 165mm Rear

Wheel Size29"

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

The Glovebox™Seal whatever you want to carry on your ride inside your downtube. Secure and easy to access, the Glovebox™ has a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse inside, to help organize your stuff too. Simply cavernous!
