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 Santa Cruz Tallboy CC 2018 is now available in 29er or 27.5+ flavour, depending on your riding style.

As a short travel 29er, the Tallboy CC 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 CC plus keeps the same ‘every trail’ friendly 68 degree head angle.

Equipment wise, the two wheel sizes get pretty similar spec. Up front, a Fox 34 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 Eagle 12 speed gearing gives the Tallboy the widest gear ratios available for any 1x set up and lightweight Level brakes also from the SRAM stable keep the weight down, without sacrificing stopping power. Maxxis tyres are shod to WTB rims, which are in turn laced to Hope Pro 4 hubs for some of the best looking, highest quality wheel action this side of a full carbon upgrade (which is also available, by the way). Added to this is the awesome KS Lev dropper post, one of the lightest in the business. The Tallboy CC is, needless to say, dripping with droolsome components from the likes of Bergtec, Hope, WTB and both models even feature a super wide Santa Cruz carbon bar, just in case you were feeling a bit short in bling. So, whether you’ve got your eyes on the horizon, the race track or a chance to show up your mates in the bragging stakes, the new Santa Cruz Tallboy CC 2018, in either 29er or 27.5+ mode is a great choice of new bike.
