Product Info

The newest Tallboy is more Tallboy than ever. The Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy 5 CC X01 Complete Mountain Bike continues in the tradition of "the downhiller's XC bike" by adopting the lower-link mounted VPP® suspension of Santa Cruz's long travel bruisers, making it even more rippable than you'd think possible. This is a bike that roasts your local flow trails, injecting speed every time you find even the slightest downside to pump. It's every bit an XC bike that a 120mm should be, too: it'll eat up 35 milers in the backcountry with the best of them. Built with Santa Cruz's legendary quality and high-level components, this Tallboy will be a favorite for many seasons to come.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

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.

Fox Float Factory DPS Rear ShockA lightweight chassis, EVOL air spring, and dual piston damper with 3-position switch create a pedal-friendly shock that soaks up the bumps and delivers pedal power to the ground with utmost efficiency.
