A downhill bike that goes everywhere
Seriously. The Megatower’s big wheels, long-travel and tough carbon fiber chassis delivers the high-speed security traits of a downhill bike. Yet the relatively steep seat angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega’s mega pedaling ability, elevating its reputation as the perfect choice for big gravity rides and DH park laps.
Place everything you need for a ride beneath the reassuringly high-quality latch and panel in the downtube, including your driving gloves. The Glovebox also comes with a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, two refined pouches for keeping your essentials close to hand.
Full carbon C and CC frame options
CC frames use the very best materials and production processes available. Our C Carbon frames have the same features but the trade off for a little less $ is a little more weight. Both versions are made in our own factory, are just as strong and stiff as one another, and have a lifetime warranty.
The steep seat angle puts the rider in the right place for scaling the steepest pitches to get to the wildest descents. It's gets progressively steeper on the biggest sizes so everyone is sat in the right spot.
165mm VPP travel
A relatively low leverage ratio offers a more damped, controlled feel across longer travel ranges and easier setup.
Coil and water compatibility
The option to run large body shocks (like a coil), a lower-link flip chip and still able to fit a water bottle inside the front triangle.
165mm travel as standard but if you choose to swap to a longer stroke (65mm) rear shock you can bump it up to 170mm.
The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.
The Megatower's chainstay length is matched to the frame size so every rider, no matter their height, gets the same balanced geometry.
Full size range
From size small to XXL, no one misses out on the Megatower.
