Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower X0 AXS | Carbon CC

Santa Cruz Megatower X0 AXS | Carbon CC Review The Megatower X0 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. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Megatower X0 AXS, the 63,5 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. On long tours, the comfortable seating position ensures a relaxed back. On climbs, the Santa Cruz lets you sweat. Other bikes 9299 Euro climb better. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Enduro von Santa Cruz to on extremely technical trails a buying recommendation in the price range 9299 Euro range. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Santa Cruz puts a lot of trust in its products.
