Santa Cruz Megatower 2.0 CC X01 29-inch Reserve
The ultimate power-wheeling, bump-chewing sidekick. The Megatower is the fusion of big wheels and the biggest-hitting suspension system. It’s a modern day brawler, as suited to diehard racers as it is to riders wanting to conquer their hometown trails. Tracing its roots to the Hightower, and now featuring the lower link-driven VPP suspension derived from the V10, the Megatower is the most capable, confidence-inspiring 29er trail bike in Santa Cruz's line-up. The lower-link mounted shock configuration — designed for compatibility with both air and coil shocks — provides a progressive shock rate that has unmatched traction and bottom-out resistance, making it ideal for taming the longest descents and rowdiest hits. In order to make the Megatower stride confidently across the globe, it has an enormous amount of clever adjustability hidden in its bones. A tidy and concealed flip chip in the lower-link adjusts bottom bracket height and changes progressivity of the rear suspension. A second modular point in the rear dropouts allows for a 10mm fore-aft adjustment in chainstay length to dial in the rider’s rearward weight distribution — either set for play or for stability. The flip chips are a robust mechanism for riders looking to tune their ride according to their needs without compromising reliability and durability. No wackadoo mousetraps and frail proprietary shocks here. The Megatower isn’t all fight and fury, it’s smart and savvy too. It has a sharp, 76-degree seat tube angle for winching to the top of the kinds of descents where having a roomier cockpit and a 65-degree head tube angle will come in handy. And you can still carry around a full water bottle inside the frame (even with a piggyback shock), and the frame is well protected with a shock fender, shuttle guard, downtube protector, and ribbed chainstay protector. The Megatower 2.0 Carbon CC X01 Reserve features an upgraded wheelset built with Santa Cruz Reserve 30 carbon rims, for superior stiffness and weight savings.

Santa Cruz 5010 Aluminum R+
$3,399.99
The 5010 is the most fun you can have on two off-road wheels, and Danny MacAskill’s wee bike of choice. Turning trails into pump tracks and logs into launches, this bike begs to spend as much time above the ground as on it. It's a laser-sharp, agile trail whip that turns on a dime and loves to pop and play. The 130mm-travel 5010 sports short chainstays and a low BB for a uniquely playful character and an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 66.2/66.5-degree head tube angle (adjusted via flip chip) and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The upper-link driven shock VPP suspension is configured to be sharp and responsive. A firm beginning stroke makes for responsive, snappy pedaling and provides support for small bump, bump-jump playfulness, while the progressive curve offers the bottom-out resistance to make it feel like there’s a lot more travel than there actually is. There’s also more than enough tire clearance to run just about any size tire, with room to run 2.8-inch tires if that’s your thing. The 5010 Aluminum R+ is mid-range offering in Santa Cruz's high-quality aluminum lineup and features SRAM's NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for all-out speed as well as mountain goat-like climbing ability. SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes keep this 5010 under control on fast descents, and 27.5+ tubeless-ready WTB rims paired to Maxxis Minion tires put more fun in backcountry adventure. It’s considered the deep cut in the Santa Cruz range by the riders who really know. While people busily overbike, 5010 owners get to the source. It’s the thrasher’s tool.
Santa Cruz Reserve 30 27.5-inch Wheelset
$1,599.00 - $2,199.00
Five years ago, Santa Cruz debunked every skeptic's fear about the long-term durability of carbon fiber bicycle frames. Now they are doing the same for wheels. Santa Cruz Reserve wheels are built on the highest quality carbon rims on the market. Their confidence in the design and strength of the wheels is backed up by a lifetime warranty, just like Santa Cruz frames.
Santa Cruz Bronson Aluminum R+
$3,499.99
Since the day it was born the Bronson has had the biggest personality in Santa Cruz's range of bikes. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do. The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point however twisted you get. There’s plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. Santa Cruz offers build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus using 2.6 tires. It feels like sorta-big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires. The Bronson Aluminum R+ takes advantage of today's excellent selection of budget-friendly components, featuring SRAM's NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Guide T hydraulic disc brakes paired to 200mm front and 180mm rear rotors, and a Race Face bar and stem combo. A tubeless-ready WTB wheelset wrapped in 2.6-inch Maxxis Minion tires provide extra bite when things get loose, and the RockShox Yari fork and Super Deluxe shock complement the VPP suspension design, giving you off-the-top response with the capability for big airs when you're ready.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C S
$4,799.99 - $5,999.00
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. The Santa Cruz Tallboy muddles the line between XC and trail with 110mm of rear wheel travel paired with a 120mm Fox 34 Performance fork. Fast-rolling Race Face ARC 29er wheels wrapped in front- and rear-specific Maxxis tires come stock, or you can upgrade to Santa Cruz’s own Reserve carbon rims for the ultimate do-anything wheelset. The Tallboy climbs almost as well as a straight-up cross-country bike, due in part to the 12 wide-ranging gears from SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain. But it shows its true colors when the trail turns downward, where SRAM Level TL brakes put precise control and reliable power at your fingertips and the brilliantly simple yet effective suspension design keeps you glued to your line without weighing you down. The Tallboy’s short-travel chassis gives it scalpel-like handling while maintaining tremendous trail capability. At first glance, 110mm of travel might seem like it’ll get overwhelmed on technical trails, but 110mm of travel designed and tuned by the experts at Santa Cruz will usher you through some pretty fast, hairy terrain long before waving the white flag, delivering the descending goods for a fraction of the climbing costs.
Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C S+
$5,199.99 - $6,399.99
The uber-capable and versatile 150mm bike that can do almost anything you ask of it – the all-arounder’s all arounder! A lofty pedigree and established reputation can be difficult to improve upon. The Bronson, as introduced in 2013, set the benchmark for all-mountain bikes in many regards – not least of which was notability as one of the first full carbon rigs to feature the newfangled 27.5 wheels. The Bronson immediately shot to the top of many “best of” lists and has enjoyed a deserved spot there since. Santa Cruz then successfully improved upon a winner with the 2016 iteration by shortening the chainstays, lengthening the top tube, slacking out the head tube angle and steepening the seat tube. Sound familiar? Yep – this is the same design principle that many manufacturers have adopted for 2019. So what’s new for Bronson in 2019? Most notably, the shock is now mounted to a lower link instead of a top mount, matching the same technology utilized in their V10 downhill bike as well as Nomad. This positioning results in a progressive leverage curve that is more linear and offers sensitive small-bump performance, supportive mid-stroke and a bottomless feel even under near-full compression. Santa Cruz has long been the master practitioner of designing bikes around the Virtual Pivot Point suspension system wherein the rear triangle is mated to the front triangle via two links, which rotate in opposite directions as the system moves through its travel. The lower-link driven VPP on the Bronson provides agility and stability, and the new pass-through design format even allows room for a coil-over shock should you so desire, though it is statedly designed for air shocks. Santa Cruz tells us this new design format allows for precise and easy suspension tuning with a focus on descending, which it does famously well and now in a more supple fashion with this new lower-link VPP design. So what about climbing? Santa Cruz has capably created an efficient climbing personality into Bronson, believe it. No wallowing in a mid-stroke hammock on this bike – that lower linkage design is much more linear than the old design, which provides a very positive feel and superb traction on even the steepest of Front Range climbs. Like its 130mm little-brother, the 5010, Bronson has been stretched in reach (13mm) and features a flip chip, which can be utilized to make small but significant geometry changes to optimize the bike’s ride characteristics and also allow increased tire sizes, up to 2.8, along with build options for 27.5+. If you’re the type of rider looking for an all-around trail bike that is enduro-capable, give the Bronson a serious consideration in your search – available for test ride and multi-day demo.

Santa Cruz 5010 Carbon C R
$3,999.99
The long-heralded, fun-loving, flickable, 130mm trail bike from Santa Cruz! Newly redesigned for 2019, the 5010 gets a longer reach of about 15mm across the size range and a slightly slacker head tube angle by half a mil. The seat tube angle has been steepened to 75 degrees from 73.8, all of which is part of the longer-and-slacker modernized geometry moves being taken by most mountain bike manufactures in this category. The new 5010 comes with a flip chip for the first time, which can be utilized to make small but significant geometry changes to optimize the bike’s ride characteristics and also allow increased tire sizes, up to 2.8. More than geometry has been updated with the addition of supports and reinforcement in both triangles. Santa Cruz has long been the master practitioner of designing bikes around the Virtual Pivot Point suspension system. The upper-link driven VPP on the 5010 is configured to be sharp and responsive, making for a responsive and snappy pedaling feel on climbs yet with a progressive travel curve on the descents that may convince you there is more than 130mm of travel here. Available in alloy and two levels of carbon and a very wide range of build kits, the 5010 is a precision tool for the rider looking for a bike that will be aggressive and agile in its descending while still being a very capable climber. We have 5010 in the demo fleet – go try it out yourself soon.
Santa Cruz Hightower LT Carbon CC X01
$6,799.99 - $7,999.00
Just like its uber-capable brethren in the 2019 Santa Cruz Line, Hightower LT (long travel) is here in an entirely new and reimagined iteration! For 2019, Hightower LT’s 150mm of travel are enhanced by the expected Santa Cruz modernization treatment with a head angle three degrees slacker, a seat tube angle 1.5 degrees steeper, an additional 1.5 inches of reach in the cockpit and chainstays shortened three-quarters of an inch with a quarter-inch lower BB. There is capability in the frame design to accommodate clearance for 29 or 27.5+ wheels, along with a flip chip to to change the geometry between wheel sizes. One thing though: it’s necessary to swap out the air shaft in the shock to maintain the geometry between wheel sizes, even with the chip. But that’s not a negative – that’s more tuning for your particular riding style! Santa Cruz says the bike is designed to be ridden as a 29er in general, so take that to heart. There are 27.5+ specific rigs available too. Pedaling-friendly VPP is Santa Cruz’s stock in trade, and the supple, bottomless feel of the design drives Hightower’s performance levels into the stratosphere. Descents are a bring-it-on consideration – this bike can and will take anything you throw at it.

Most notably, the shock is now mounted to a lower link instead of a top mount, matching the same technology utilized in their V10 downhill bike as well as Nomad. This positioning results in a progressive leverage curve that is more linear and offers sensitive small-bump performance, supportive mid-stroke and a bottomless feel even under near-full compression. Santa Cruz has long been the master practitioner of designing bikes around the Virtual Pivot Point suspension system wherein the rear triangle is mated to the front triangle via two links, which rotate in opposite directions as the system moves through its travel. The lower-link driven VPP on the Bronson provides agility and stability, and the new pass-through design format even allows room for a coil-over shock should you so desire, though it is statedly designed for air shocks. Santa Cruz tells us this new design format allows for precise and easy suspension tuning with a focus on descending, which it does famously well and now in a more supple fashion with this new lower-link VPP design. So what about climbing? Santa Cruz has capably created an efficient climbing personality into Bronson, believe it. No wallowing in a mid-stroke hammock on this bike – that lower linkage design is much more linear than the old design, which provides a very positive feel and superb traction on even the steepest of Front Range climbs. Like its 130mm little-brother, the 5010, Bronson has been stretched in reach (13mm) and features a flip chip, which can be utilized to make small but significant geometry changes to optimize the bike’s ride characteristics and also allow increased tire sizes, up to 2.8, along with build options for 27.5+. If you’re the type of rider looking for an all-around trail bike that is enduro-capable, give the Bronson a serious consideration in your search – available for test ride and multi-day demo.
Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon CC X01
$6,999.99 - $8,199.00
The uber-capable and versatile 150mm bike that can do almost anything you ask of it – the all-arounder’s all arounder! A lofty pedigree and established reputation can be difficult to improve upon. The Bronson, as introduced in 2013, set the benchmark for all-mountain bikes in many regards – not least of which was notability as one of the first full carbon rigs to feature the newfangled 27.5 wheels. The Bronson immediately shot to the top of many “best of” lists and has enjoyed a deserved spot there since.

Santa Cruz Blur Carbon CC X01 TR
$6,699.99 - $7,899.00
Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur does it all without compromise. No matter how demanding your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. At just 2060g this is Santa Cruz's lightest ever 100mm full suspension frame. The ultra-efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got rocket-like acceleration on demand. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to Santa Cruz's World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. The Blur Carbon CC X01 TR build finds the sweet spot in high-end performance and adds a little trail swagger with a longer travel fork and Reverb dropper post. SRAM's X01 Eagle drivetrain and Level TLM brakes offer intuitive shifting and braking response so you can focus on the trail ahead, while the lightened Fox 34 110mm fork and Float shock ensure no amount of energy is wasted as you hammer toward your goals. You get to choose which wheelset suits your style of riding best: either Race Face AR rims paired to DT 350 hubs or Santa Cruz's own Reserve Carbon. Both are wrapped in Maxxis Aspen tires for serious speed on XC tracks. An SCB XC Carbon Flat bar and Syntace LiteForce stem put the finishing touch on responsive control. Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to take those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon.
