Santa Cruz faced a dilemma when revamping their best selling model - stick with 29er race characteristics or take advantage of the versatility of 27.5+ tyres - with the Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 CC, they did both. Using a clever flip switch, the Tallboy 3 CC can go from racey, XC speed machine to all mountain conquering big tyre monster, allowing you to choose two bikes for (almost) the price of one. In 29er guise, the Tallboy 3 is the bike every knows and loves, but with a bit more spring in its step - whippy modern geometry and a trail length fork (120mm) mean that this bike can take on the pack in a marathon race one day and deliver you to the trail centre the next with equal aplomb. Also relying on the fantastic 110mm of rear wheel VPP travel, but upping the front end to a more big mountain friendly 130mm, the 27.5+ version or the Tallboy 3 also offers additional cushioning from the big volume tyres and more grip than pensioner hanging on to a winning lottery ticket. Both Tallboy 3 CCs bring you top quality build kits with 1x11 drivetrain option from Shimano and SRAM, as well as Hope/WTB wheels and a host of big name components (check out the build kits below). In a nod to the increasingly technical nature of XC race courses and our own trail ambitions, the Tallboy 3 CC comes with dropper posts as standard on all models, as well a wide carbon bars and short stems to maximise your riding position. For racers, all day riders and those wanting to convert to the new 27.5+ standard, there is no better bike than the Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 CC to flip your switch.
