Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS / Carbon C

Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS / Carbon C Review The Megatower GX AXS is the enduro race weapon in the line up of Santa Cruz. The lush 170 mm suspension travel on the fork swallow even rough rocks in the trail course. The combination of a 63,5 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Santa Cruz Fully, even if you ride fast. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the Megatower GX AXS. On climbs, other bikes in the under 8000 Euro present a little better performance than the Enduro von Santa Cruz. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
