The Details

The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre bending folk hero.

It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as Santa Cruz's longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up.

The radical thinking doesn’t stop there. The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop) and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side.

  • 29" optimised, 120mm of travel, Santa Cruz custom carbon frameset
  • Radical geometry perfectly suited for sprinting up, down, or around the trails
  • Flip Chip axle lets you change the length of chainstays depending on style of riding

 

 

Our Verdict

The new Santa Cruz Tallboy is a highly refined, short-travel, full suspension mountain bike that offers 120mm of lower-link VPP suspension, a sleek design and rewarding geometry. If ever there was an enduro rider's XC bike, the Tallboy is it.
