Megatower Carbon CC X01 Eagle Coil Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Santa Cruz's newest big hit 29er, the Megatower, is a godsend for super aggressive riders and enduro racers looking to go faster and tame the most technical lines. One way to take it up another level is throwing a coil rear shock on it and that's exactly what Santa Cruz does with the Megatower Carbon CC X01 Eagle Coil Complete Bike. Its lower link driven VPP platform is practically begging for a coil shock, and if this was our own bike, we'd probably go ahead and invest in an air shock too. Drop some weight or add a little more bottom out prevention with some more progression in the park afforded with an air spring and enjoy the extra plushness and traction that only comes from a coil that's spec'd here for enduro racing and maybe even a few DH runs. Our portfolio of bikes reveals so many great mountain bikes from various brands and pretty much all of them have a heavy-hitting 29er in their arsenal and for good reason. Wagon wheels simply carry more speed in almost every riding situation and with modern geometry, these bikes are free to exploit their high-speed stability on rowdy trails, while remaining agile and nimble, comfortable in the air, while still climbing with authority.

With some of the longest reach numbers, steepest seat tube angles, and longer wheelbases we've seen come out of the firm's headquarters, this is one progressive 29er and one that likes to get rowdy. While the LT might have been a quick fix to get its sponsored riders competitive in enduro races, the Megatower started life as an enduro weapon built from the get-go as a purpose-built machine to address the needs of the modern enduro racer and big hit trail rider. Part of this has to do with its transition to a lower-link driven VPP design like the one found on the Nomad, Bronson, and V10. Besides it generous 160mm of rear travel, the lower-link VPP ...
