Santa Cruz Tallboy 2 Carbon s XC Kit

Standing tall, the world over.

The Tallboy was Santa Cruz' first 29er, and reflected the way they wanted 29ers to ride --fast and fun. For their second iteration, they doubled down on this idea, and made what amounts to a screamer of an XC bike that still feels right at home on real trails. Features like the ISCG05 tabs, the 142mm thru-axle in the rear, and routing for dropper posts may not have been the first things on the list for most full-suspension cross-country bikes, but they felt they were all must-haves, and you'll find them all on the Tallboy. Out back, you'll find 100mm of VPP-controlled travel, and they've tuned the shock rate to provide an efficient but smooth ride. When paired with a 120mm fork, it offers traction and control in spades.

This C-level carbon frame uses a slightly heavier, less-expensive grade of carbon fiber to achieve the same strength, stiffness, and durability you'll find in the CC-level frames, but they use a bit more of the material to achieve it. Real world result? A 280 gram increase in frame weight.
