Following the success of their flip chip on the Hightower, Santa Cruz (possibly having spotted Biketart’s cheeky suggestion in 2016) have decided to take extend the idea to their shorter travel 29er, meaning that the new Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2018 is now available in 29er or 27.5+ flavour, depending on your riding style. Either way, you get the amazing C grade carbon, which provides an affordable alternative to top grade CC frames, with only a small weight penalty to pay.

As a short travel 29er, the Tallboy C gives up 110mm of super smooth VPP travel, making it ideal for big days out, trail centre riding or even a spot of XC racing. 29ers roll over obstacles with ease, offer a big contact patch in loose conditions and tackle rocky, rooty trails like they're tarmac. Keeping up speed is also a breeze, great for long distance riding and connecting bridleways with road sections. Matched to a 120mm fork and with a playfully sensible 68 degree head angle, the Tallboy 29 is as much fun as it is a reliable trail partner.

Jumping to 27.5+ wheels and things get a little more…lairy. Front end travel jumps to 130mm and the tyres can be as wide as 3 inches, giving you masses of contact patch and ‘fat lite’ style handling. Plus bikes are fantastic for super loose trails, big rocky rides and days out where comfort might be valued a little more than speed. Climbing & cornering are also a dream, with so much grip on tap that you might think there was glue attached to your tyres. Cleverly, the Tallboy C 27.5+  models keep the same ‘every trail’ friendly 68 degree head angle.

Equipment wise, the two wheel sizes get pretty similar spec. Up front, a Fox 34 (Rhythm or Float depending on spec level) fork provides the perfect weight:stiffness balance for an XC trail bike while a Fox Float DPS shock sets the industry standard for suppleness and responsive travel. SRAM/ Shimano 1x11 or Eagle 12 speed gearing gives the Tallboy a set of ultra reliable gears, no after which model you choose and lightweight Level or Shimano XT brakes provide tons of stopping power and modulation. Maxxis tyres are shod to WTB or Race Face rims, which are in turn laced to Novatec hubs for huge tyre volume and reliable rolling day-in-day-out. The Tallboy C also features some fantastic finishing kit, such as a Race Face stem, WTB saddle, Cane Creek headset and even tubeless set up tyres as standard - awesome! The S and XE models even feature an internally routed RockShox Reverb dropper post, ready for some of the more technical riding that you won't be able to resist trying in this playful beast. So, whether you’ve got your eyes on the horizon, the race track or a chance to show up your mates round the local trail centre, the new Santa Cruz Tallboy C 2018, in either 29er or 27.5+ mode will do the job beautifully.
