The Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape. As a 27+ bike, in desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and provide grip where standard tires flounder, and lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections. In its 29-inch form, the Tallboy's renowned rowdy streak comes to the fore. Happy at full gas, up or down hill, the speed and agility of the 29er configuration will have you grinning. A 68 degree head angle and 110mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy's playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and brings the Tallboy up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range. A flip chip on the upper link ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL. Santa Cruz put a lot of emphasis on the suspension performance and ride characteristics of their VPP suspension design with tune ability of shock rates for individual designs, superb pedaling and bump absorption characteristics. The Tallboy frame comes with all of the geeked out details that you need to customize your rig, with internal cable routing for a dropper post. Lifetime warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
