Why We Like The Santa Cruz Tallboy CC X0 Eagle Transmission Mountain Bike
Designed to crush the most grueling climbs and then pop and play all the way down our favorite flowy descent, the Santa Cruz Tallboy sits high atop our list of favorite short-travel trail bikes. Its 120mm of VPP rear travel provides us with a supportive platform for highly efficient pedaling that performs like its longer travel brethren on the descents. The top-tier Carbon CC frame construction delivers impressive weight savings while still being durable and responsive for our everyday rides. The Tallboy finds the perfect balance between high-speed stability and agility for techy switchbacks with its just-slack-enough 65.5-degree headtube angle in the low position. Plus, this version of the Tallboy gets one of our favorite features, the Glovebox frame storage system. Now we can stash our tools, trail essentials, and even a snack in the downtube so we can leave the pack behind.
The Tallboy CC X0 Eagle Transmission build is kitted out with SRAM's all-new X0 Eagle Transmission groupset. This robust new drivetrain technology provides the durability and precision that we need for everything from hot laps after work to all-day high-alpine epics thanks to the hangerless attachment and seamless shifting, even under load. The Fox Factory 34 fork offers 130mm of bump-busting travel with loads of adjustments so that we can fine-tune our suspension to perfectly suit our riding style. A pair of sleek 4-piston SRAM Level Silver Stealth brakes give us plenty of stopping power to navigate technical descents with ease, and a set of bombproof 29in Race Face ARC Offset 30 rims get laced up to Industry Nine 1/1 hubs for cruising through flats and cleaning square-edge hits alike. Fast, fun, and dressed to the nines, the Santa Cruz Tallboy CC X0 Eagle Transmission Mountain Bike might just be the downhiller's XC bike that we've been dreaming of.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
