Le compagnon ultime, puissant et rassurant.

Le Megatower est l'association de grandes roues à notre configuration de suspension la plus efficace. C’est un bagarreur des temps modernes, autant adapté aux pilotes avides de compétition qu'à ceux désireux de conquérir les meilleurs chemins environnants.

Tirant ses racines du Hightower et adoptant à présent la suspension VPP "lower-link" issue du V10, le Megatower est le vélo d'enduro ultime de notre gamme 29 pouces. Il est puissant, résistant à toutes épreuves et inspire une confiance sans faille.

La configuration d'amortisseur montée sur la biellette inférieure permet une compatibilité avec amortisseur à air ou à ressort. Elle procure une courbe d'amortissement progressive qui apporte une adhérence et une résistance au chocs inégalées, ce qui lui permet d'affronter sans broncher les descentes les plus longues et les chocs les plus durs.

Afin de permettre au Megatower de tirer le meilleur à travers le monde, il possède une vaste capacité de réglages pensée à la conception.
Un flip-chip bien placé et dissimulé sur la biellette inférieure ajuste la hauteur du pédalier et modifie la progressivité de la suspension arrière. Une seconde, sur le bras oscillant, permet un ajustement de la longueur de bases de 10 mm afin d'adapter la répartition du poids du pilote, soit pour la stabilité, soit par préférence de pilotage. Les flip-chips sont des moyens mécaniques fiables et robustes pour permettre aux pilotes d'adapter leur pilotage et leurs besoins sans compromettre la fiabilité et la durabilité. Pas de trucs et astuces bidons ici, simplement des moyens mécaniques simples et efficaces.

Le Megatower ne va cependant pas uniquement chercher dans les extrêmes, il propose également un comportement saint et averti. Un angle de tube de selle optimal de 76 degrés pour se hisser en haut des descentes, un poste de pilotage plus spacieux et un angle de direction de 65 degrés permettront un contrôle et un ressenti idéal. Il est possible de monter un porte bidon sans problème, même avec un amortisseur à bonbonne. Le cadre est parfaitement protégé avec un garde-boue pour l'amortisseur, une protection pour les transports en pick-up et une protection de base rainurée qui vous fera presque oublier que vous roulez avec une chaine.

Tech Support

Can I mount a chainguide to my bike?

Yes, this bike is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs for easy chainguide mounting. Most chainguides on the market that are made for this standard should work. We have first-hand experience with MRP and e13 Guides, which fit great.

Can I put 27.5" wheels on my Megatower?

No, the Megatower is built exclusively for 29" wheels and tires. 27+ tires won't fit, and the geometry is not setup for a conversion.

How does the chainstay-length adjustment work?

The bike ships in the short position and nothing unusual is required for this setting. The brake mount is Post-Mount 180, so just add whatever adaptor you need to make it work for your chosen rotor size (none if you want 180). Included with the bike is a special brake adaptor to adjust to the long setting. This setting only works with 200mm or larger rotors- use the included 1.5mm spacers between your caliper and the bracket if you are using 203. Put the spacers above the caliper if you are using 200mm. Once you've changed the adaptor, install the Long derailleur hanger and then flip the chip around in the non-drive dropout. There is a retaining set-screw in the chip- make sure you loosen this to remove it, then snug it up once you've re-installed the chip

I want to change my rear shock. Any limitations?

The Megatower was built to be compatible with all shocks on the market, that we're aware of. We haven't tried some of the smaller obscure brands, but it fits anything from Fox and Rockshox

Should I ride in the High or Low setting?

You should definitely try both, but we typically recommend starting in High. This will make the bike more agile and easy to get used to. If your terrain is quite steep, give Low a try. This setting lowers the BB by 3.5mm, slackens the head angle by 0.3 degrees, and generally just biases your weight a little further back. The leverage curve of the suspension changes slightly as well: it's more progressive. The geometry changes combined with the slight suspension change will make you feel like you're sat further down in the bike. Great for steep gnar, not as good for flatter corners. It's easy to change, so experiment!

What is the largest chainring I can use on the Megatower?

With a proper boost chainring (52mm chainline), the Megatower will accept a 36t chainring or smaller.

What is the recommended fork?

Our geometry is based off of a 160mm fork with a 42 or 44mm offset. We wouldn't recommend less travel than that, as the BB will get a bit low. Up to 180mm is fine if that's your preference.

What kind of headset does this bike use?

This bike uses integrated headset cups. The upper up is 41mm and the lower cup is 52mm. The SHIS name is IS 41/28.6 IS 52/40.

What size tire will fit?

In short position, the largest tire we recommend is 29x2.5". In the long chainstay setting, a 29x2.6" will fit as well.

Where can I find additional technical information for my bike?

Currently all technical info is located either on the bike archive or under tech support. Both can provide helpful information for puzzling with your bike, torque specs, and exploded diagrams.
