If hardtails are the sheep of cross-country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle combined with fat 2.8-inch tires and a 130mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 27.5+ wheelset or 29-inch wheels thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. For the Tallboy C S+, Santa Cruz ups the build with SRAM Level TL brakes, GX 1 x 11-speed shifting bits, and a Fox 34 Float Performance fork.
