Full suspension for all.

The Santa Cruz Tallboy us what legends are made of. Now, Santa Cruz rewards riders with the same VPP suspension and ride quality in a 29er aluminum frame design that significantly lowers the price point. The Tallboy with FLOAT CTD is the latest from these California bike specialists.

The most sought after piece of Tallboy technology is the VPP suspension. This system uses two counter-rotating links to achieve a balance between efficiency and shock absorption. What this means is that while the suspension is capable of handling big hits, you won't feel it bottom out when you stand to accelerate once the trail flattens out. When the bike compresses deep into the travel of the suspension, the lower link moves the axle path toward the rear which means that it moves out of the way of impacts more effectively-this keeps the ride smooth. You'll also find the same collet-style pivot hardware that has become standard for Santa Cruz's suspension bikes. This means that your pivots stay tight and are a breeze to service.

FOX's FLOAT CTD Evolution shock is used in the suspension. It works seamlessly with the Tallboy thanks in part to custom tuning which ensures it complements the VPP suspension. This keeps it active while it brakes, smooth over rock gardens, and keeps the wheels on the ground for traction while climbing.

Rounding out the frame design is a moxed tapered 44/56mm head tube that is compatible with tapered forks. This fork design allows for a higher degree of steering precision. The rear dropouts accept a 135x10mm rear hub, while the 73mm English threaded bottom bracket shell ensures a creak-free crankset and ease of service. It was designed for a standard 30.9mm seatpost and 34.9mm front derailleur

The Santa Cruz Tallboy with CTD is available the sizes Medium, Large, and X-Large and in the colors Orange, Black, Raw/bare, Satin Black, Satin Clear, and White.
