When its comes to a redesign, the Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2017 has taken evolution a step further in the pursuit of the perfect balance of XC race credentials and big mountain trail performance. Still running a 110mm virtual pivot point rear end, the axle is now 148mm Boosted for better tracking over the increasingly rough terrain of XC race courses, meaning that natural boulder fields will be a breeze too. Moving to a 34mm stanchion 120mm fork (the Fox Rhythm or Float) keeps the front end stiff too, for perfect tracking, whatever your line choice. With a light, tough carbon heart, the Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2017 also leads its class for strength to weight ratio - bonus! When it comes to climbing, the tight rear end and SRAM 1x11 gearing combine to make each ascent a simple case of 'pick a gear and attack' while there is enough bottom end speed, courtesy or the 30 tooth chain ring, to outsprint rivals and friends on the downhill side. When you do need to shave off speed, the Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2017 comes equipped with the excellent new SRAM Level brakes; a new 'level' in XC trail performance. Kitted out with Novatec hubbed, Race Face/WTB rimmed wheels and Maxxis tyres (already tubeless set up for you - no one else does that!), those 29 hoops will swallow big rocks and roots like a hippo gobbling cabbages at the zoo, then come back begging for more. The Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2017 also features finishing kit from the likes of Race Face, Cane Creek and WTB, as well as being dropper post ready (a Reverb is fitted as standard to the S AM model) so you are also looking at total future proofing. Are you ready for race winning, trail taming, big mountain performance? If so, then you are ready for the new Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2017.
