Expirience with the Santa Cruz Megatower X01 AXS RSV

Santa Cruz Megatower X01 AXS RSV 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. With a flat 63,8 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. If you are already a little older, your back will love the comfortabel seating position of the Enduro of Santa Cruz. With 15,5 kg, the Enduro of Santa Cruz tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. Finally, here is another killer argument: in price range on moderate runs, the Megatower X01 AXS is one of the best models in the on moderate runs category. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 25 years warranty Santa Cruz sets the bar high!
