Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS COIL

Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS COIL Review The new Megatower comes in the typical Santa Cruz design with a low-lying VPP rear end. What is new, however, is the integrated storage compartment for the spare tube under the bottle holder. The flat 63,8 degree head tube angle of the Megatower GX AXS COIL oozes self-assurance, especially in challenging terrain. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 16,1 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
