Description of Santa Cruz TALLBOY 3.0 CARBON C S-27.5+ Mountainbike - 2017 - yellow & emerald
Happy at Full Gas!
The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape.
As a 27+ bike it revels in the severe. In desert-dry conditions the wider tires float above the dust and find oases of grip where standard tires flounder. And when the monsoon comes, lower tire pressures pull the Tallboy through the slickest of root sections like a Defender on diff-lock.
A 68 degree head angle and 110 mm of VPP travel distills the original Tallboy's playful character into something all the more mischievous. Longer reach and shorter chainstays fuel that personality, and bring the Tallboy bang up to date with the rest of the Santa Cruz range.
A flip chip on the upper link, combined with either a 130 mm fork (for 27+) or 120 mm fork (for 29-inch), ensures geometry remains consistent across a vast range of build kits and sizes, from S to XXL.
This C-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as the CC-level frame, but weighs a few grams more, due to the use of some less-expensive carbon fiber. Using this material doesn't impact the performance of the bike at all, but they have to use a bit more of it to make the bike to Santa Cruz's exacting specifications, which results in the weight gain.
The versatile trail bike of choice for rapid riders like Greg Minnaar-the Tallboy is for those who don't roll with the pack.
