Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy 5 C R Complete Mountain Bike is the smartest luxury purchase you'll ever make. Not only does it rip on every type of ride, but this R-level build continues the almost reasonable lunacy with proven, simple, and dependable parts. This latest Tallboy has all of Santa Cruz's big bike bonus features, from the redesigned VPP® suspension that seems to speed up through rough stuff to size-specific rear triangles and the cavernous Glovebox™ in-frame storage. Let the rest of the crew hem and haw over which bike to choose this weekend: the Tallboy is just more fun everywhere, especially in the mountains.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Fox Float DPS Performance Rear ShockPerformance Series FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

The Glovebox™Seal whatever you want to carry on your ride inside your downtube. Secure and easy to access, the Glovebox™ has a Tool Wallet and Tube Purse inside, to help organize your stuff too. Simply cavernous!
