Not just beer anymore.

Climb aboard Santa Cruz’s first foray into the big-wheel market, and your mom’s voice will come crashing into your head like you were six years old again –good things come to those who wait. Santa Cruz may not have been the first to market with a big-wheeled, full-suspension, trail-eating machine, but they nailed the entrance like the latest fifteen-minute rapper at the VMAs. The Tallboy uses a time-tested VPP suspension design to glide over the bumps and climb like a hardtail. Santa Cruz engineered the carbon layup to be incredibly stiff and strong, while keeping frame weight at just a hair over five pounds, including the shock.

  • Shimano XT drivetrain provides precise and consistent shifting for seasons of performance
  • Next-Generation VPP suspension design utilizes variable shock rates to give you the best ride possible
  • Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brakes give you great modulation and braking power
  • Four inches of front and rear travel helps you ride over roots, ruts, and babyheads with ease

Santa Cruz Fan-addict

Decided to replace my 12 year old Superlight and my LBS carried Giant and Specialized. I was going to build up an Anthem 29r when I saw the sale on the carbon Tallboy. Bought the Tallboy and couldn't be happier with my choice. Naturally, I replaced the stock hoops with a lighter pair and changed the seat, post and bar to my liking. With pedals (Xpeedo) the bike weighs 26.4. This bike is a game changer. It rolls so easily, confidently and feels no larger than my 26" bikes, but is better than all of them in technical sections. When I ride with a group I feel as though I am cheating, it takes so little effort to keep pace. Several friends have ridden it and I love the look on their faces as they turn the cranks!
