[First Ride] Santa Cruz Megatower

[First Ride] Santa Cruz Megatower

Simon Silver, 27/06/2019

We recently stopped by the Santa Cruz Bicycles HQ to pick up a size medium Megatower for a long term review. As soon as we got on the bike, we felt impressed by it’s stability and playfulness. You’ll find POV trail footage of our first ride aboard the new bike in the video below. The model we are testing features a SRAM X01 build, Santa Cruz Reserve wheels, and slides in at a price point of $8,399.
