Description

Santa Cruz's full-carbon Tallboy C has a long list of awesomeness that translates into an incredible ride out on the trails. A tapered head tube combined with Santa Cruz's carbon lay-up makes this XC ripper gloriously stiff; stuff it into a tight corner, you'll see what we mean. Short chainstays and wheelbase make it quick and nimble, and of course, the fact that the frame and shock weigh only around five pounds (medium) helps as well. And on top of all that, Santa Cruz's proven 100mm VPP suspension delivers phenomenal traction, whether you're spinning up a techy climb or blasting downhill. Key frame details include a carbon linkage and grease ports for the links. When it's time to go, Shimano's proven XT/SLX components are right there at your beck and call, with all the smooth-shifting precision you'd expect. RaceFace components throughout and a pair of tubeless-ready WTB rims with grippy Maxxis rubber are there to ice the cake.
