    Summary

    Expirience with the Santa Cruz MEGATOWER X01 AXS/ Coil / RSV / CC / 29

    Expirience with the MEGATOWER X01 AXS/ Coil / RSV / CC / 29 2022 When it comes to the EWS, guys like Craig Evans or Lago Garay usually rely on the MEGATOWER X01. Lots of suspension travel and large 29er wheels are proven at high speeds in rough terrain. Especially in extremely steep terrain, this combination makes for smooth handling. For all of those who love a good incline, the moderate seating position of the on very demanding single trails should be considered pleasant. At frame Santa Cruz has not held back. The Fully-chassis makes an extremely good impression. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. Considering that in the 10499 Euro_de range, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice! We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
