The Santa Cruz Tallboy combines short travel efficiency with modern geometry to create a bike that's as up for the big climb as it is the big descent. These sporty 29ers are the perfect choice for riders considering a cross country bike but will likely never race. They climb efficiently, roll fast on the on the flats, and have some real capability for when the DH music goes from easy listening to rock-and-roll. Featuring a 130mm fork and 120mm of Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) rear suspension travel, Tallboy is sporty, capable, and fun.

Expert Reviews

Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C S Review

Santa Cruz recently redesigned their popular short-travel 29er and in doing so they’ve created an impressively versatile and capable trail bike.

Bike Perfect
Santa Cruz Tallboy 4 Tested

After three generations of evolution, Santa Cruz have gone all out with the fourth Tallboy. Heavier weight and reduced suspension ‘kick’ won’t suit previous Tallboy die hards but that brings the Blur TR into the limelight. Impeccably damped and focused suspension character mean it won’t suit riders who like the lumps taken out of their trail or their hands held if they overstep their skill/speed ratio either.

Bike Mag
Bible Review: Santa Cruz Tallboy X01 CC Reserve

Santa Cruz calls the Tallboy “a gravity rider’s cross-country bike,” and our testers couldn’t agree more.

First Ride Review: The 2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy Rethinks Trail Bike Capability

The new Tallboy distinguishes itself from the previous version with more travel and much slacker angles. It still keeps a smaller travel spec for go-far XC pedaling, but is now more ready for steep and technical descents than ever.

Vital MTB
Downcountry Dominator? 2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy Review

The fourth generation of the Tallboy and its Juliana counterpart, the Joplin, sport a little extra travel and massively updated, slacked-out geometry. Built to charge far and fast, this would be a great addition to your quiver.
