Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS RSV COIL

Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS RSV 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. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Enduro of Santa Cruz, the 63,8 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the Santa Cruz Megatower GX AXS COIL. When viewing the 16,1 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Enduros in this price range. For 9199 Euro , competitors usually deliver geometries with less fun potential. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
