Product Info

There are few better bikes to spend your hard-earned cash on than the Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy A R Complete Mountain Bike. The VPP suspension has been redesigned, with the rear shock moved to the lower link. This gives the latest Tallboy a 10mm increase in travel along with more stability than its predecessor (already a trail favorite). This bike climbs like crazy, is hyper-maneuverable, and stays more planted at speed than any shorter-travel bike has a right to. This aluminum R-level build merges unique versatility with solid components so well that it's pretty much unbeatable.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Aluminum Frame

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 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.
