The Megatower LT link gives the Santa Cruz Megatower increased descending and cornering performance, as well as offering riders multiple travel options for up to 180 mm of travel. We designed the leverage curve to help offset the high low speed compression damping tune that the stock shock has, which is the cause of some of the harshness people have experienced with this bike.

This link can be run with the stock 230×57.5 mm shock, a 230×60 mm shock (stock Nomad size), or a 230×65 mm shock. These equate to travel options of 166 mm, 170 mm, and 180 mm respectively. These options allow you to tune your travel along with the shock to suit the type of riding you do most. The Megatower LT link is designed to maintain the Megatower’s pedaling characteristics. As a result, even with the shock set up to provide 180 mm of travel it will still get to the top of climbs equally as well as with the stock link. By increasing shock stroke bottom out resistance is inherently increased. Because of this with a 230×65 shock can be run with a softer spring to give it more of a mini-dh feel. Alternatively the same spring as before can be used and you can enjoy a greatly increased amount of bottom out resistance.
