THE NEW MEGATOWER

BE HONEST, ITS ALL ABOUT THE DESCENT

When World Champs like Greg Minnaar and Jackson Goldstone aren’t on their office bikes, they’re often throttling a Megatower for all it’s worth. Because 165mm of VPP® lower link travel is more than enough to feel just like the Syndicate. A ±63-degree adjustable head tube angle coupled to a 170mm fork and 29-inch wheels delivers the high-speed security of a downhill bike. Yet the 78-degree seat angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega’s mega ability to climb, retaining its reputation as the perfect choice for knocking out big gravity rides and DH park laps.

Look under the bonnet and you’ll discover a relatively low leverage ratio on the rear shock compared to our other bikes. This is engineered into the VPP kinematics to offer a more damped, controlled feel across longer travel ranges, meaning less faffing with your shock.

Delve further still and you’ll notice hi/lo geo fine-tuneability, and even the option to use a 65mm stroke shock to boost rear travel to 170mm. Not that you’ll need it. But we’ve got you tweakers covered.

But what about the cavernous Glovebox that allows for the safe stowage of whatever you need to enjoy your ride? Yeah that’s right, all your tools, spares and driving gloves are right within reach now. We aren’t the first to offer this, but our Glovebox is a highly engineered and distinctly refined interpretation of a downtube hatch. Just like the reassuringly weighty clunk of a car door and the gentle glide of a soft close kitchen cabinet, this feels just right.

The all-new Megatower: near V10 performance in an up-down-repeat package.
