Why We Like The Tallboy Carbon CC X01 Eagle Mountain Bike

Don't let its shorter travel fool you, as the Santa Cruz Tallboy boasts capability well beyond what the numbers read. This speedy trail bike rolls on 29-inch wheels and sports 120mm of VPP rear travel mated to a 130mm FOX fork. Pair that with Santa Cruz's progressive geometry and ultra-refined carbon frame and we've got one helluva machine that can rack up miles more quickly than a hefty enduro sled, but isn't afraid to drop into a steep, white-knuckle downhill trail.


The Tallboy V4 follows the trends of its deeper-travel siblings, moving the VPP suspension down to a lower-link that offers improved stabilization in the roughest terrain, while an extra 10mm of travel helps soak up additional rocks and roots that the previous Tallboy would have shied away from. This makes the new ride more confident than ever, ready for bigger trails, rutted-out lines, brakes bumps galore, and even turning the odd set of rollers into doubles—but not at the cost of climbing. The new suspension is designed with the same engineering principles as the brand's longest travel bikes, making it just as at home riding cross-country as it is extreme backcountry. Santa Cruz's VPP suspension is designed to stabilize the suspension when you're putting power to the pedals, meaning the rear end ceases to bob, providing a much more responsive and lively feel when you hammer up steeps, so you aren't wasting all of the power you put down. This is achieved with counter-rotating links that are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating bobbing under power.


One thing you can always count on with Santa Cruz is their industry-leading carbon frame construction that provides legendary strength and unwavering stiffness. This particular Hightower benefits from the top-shelf Carbon CC layup, which drops weight, thanks to its use of a higher-end carbon, resin, and manufacturing process that sheds grams without sacrificing an ounce of strength or stiffness. You can count on this lighter Carbon CC version to drop anywhere from 250-to-280-grams below the lower-spec Carbon C model, making it well worth the upgrade if you covet a lighter build.


Santa Cruz pairs up the CC level carbon of this Tallboy with cherry-picked components to maximize performance, efficiency, and reliability. It aims to please with top-of-the-line suspension from RockShox and FOX to soften harsh blows from unruly rock gardens and gobble up small bumps to keep traction locked in on technical climbs. The suspension partners up with SRAM's X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain to provide plenty of range on the days that tickle 5-digit ascent numbers, and offer you SRAM's new 52-tooth bailout cog to help save you from hiking your bike up the steepest climbs.


*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
