EWS Ready: Andrew's new Megatower
For The Riders support a number of racers who compete locally, nationally and even internationally. Andrew Cavaye is a top end rider and having taken many podiums locally and even nationally is getting geared up to race many of the European Enduro World Series (EWS) rounds.
When you're flying across the glove to compete in the biggest race of your life you don't leave things to chance. As a result we've spent a lot of time with Andrew making sure every part is just right and ready for the big occasion.
With Santa Cruz releasing the 'Megatower', a new 29" enduro race bike it was a no brainier for frame choice. Santa Cruz also came to the party with a set of Reserve rims on DT Swiss 350 hubs. Cush Core and Maxxis rubber was installed to make sure that maximum grip and ride feel is achieved.
One of the most critical parts of the setup is suspension. Working with the suspension tuning experts NSDynamics, Andrew selected a set of DVO Diamonds. Their 'Off The Top' (OTT) feature lets riders really dial in the suppleness of the fork and sets them apart from the rest.
Contact points are critical to getting the right feel on your bike. As all the impacts from the trail are channelled through your body from these parts. Looking for the best parts around to give him the edge Andrew chose DisIsDaBoss Sensus grips. Green and gold lock ons added for that Aussie touch because we all appreciate an attention to detail. Paired with Chromag carbon BZA bars and BZA stem its a sweet setup. A Chromag saddle is installed to ensure comfort on those long alpine slogs to the top before slamming that saddle and smashing the descent.
For Andrew's own run down of his new rig including some footage and feedback from his first ride check out his Vlog below.
Andrew would like to thank all of his sponsors who made this possible and we all wish him the best of luck in his upcoming EWS races!
