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

120mm 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.

Fox Float Performance DPSFor a lightweight, inline shock, the DPS packs a lot of performance. The Dual Piston Base Valve has dedicated compression and rebound pistons, providing a firm lockout without compromising bump compliance, ride control, or efficiency. Performance 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. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

Drive Train

SRAM NX Eagle™Eagle™ Technology revolutionized the mountain bike experience by offering riders a 1x drivetrain solution that is purpose-built to be lightweight, strong and intuitive, with the gear range to ride on any terrain. NX Eagle™ drivetrain is the newest addition to the Eagle™ 1x ecosystem, and shares technologies with XX1, X01 and GX drivetrains, which makes it 100-percent compatible within the Eagle™ ecosystem. NX Eagle™ delivers an ease of entry that will bring the benefit of Eagle™ range and Eagle™ performance to more riders than ever before.

Brakes

SRAM Guide T BrakesetGuide T brings the consistent performance that you have come to expect from SRAM's lightweight Guide four-piston caliper. Pair this with MatchMaker™ for a clean looking bar set-up, plus the ease of use with SRAM's Bleeding Edge™ drip-free bleed port and you have a smart budget minded brake that keeps you in control.

Avid CenterLine RotorsThe new CenterLine Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 Rims Laced to SRAM MTH Hubs32 DT Swiss Competition spokes are triple-crossed to SRAM's aluminum trail hubs, giving you solid trail feel, quick engagement, and all-mountain durability.

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II | Rear TireThe trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!
