Santa Cruz Tallboy CC

Santa Cruz Tallboy CC

If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it.

The new 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. With kick-ass lower-link VPP suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is back to being a genre bending folk hero.

Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step—but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design this is one giant leap for the Tallboy.  

It’s the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up. 

And the geometry, that's a big part of what's going on...

Established theory suggests shorter travel bikes get ridden slower, therefore require steeper and more conservative geometries. In reality though, when was the last time you ever throttled back on a fun trail because you weren’t on a bigger bike?  Caution to the wind and all that. So we’ve done the same here and mimicked our longer travel geometry to create a bike with a 65.5-degree head-angle, generous front center, and short offset fork. Something rarely seen on a bike of this ilk.

And the radical thinking doesn’t stop there.  The Tallboy’s short-short 430mm chainstays have +/- 10mm of rear axle adjustment to ensure riders of all sizes and styles feel equally at home. Match that to a relatively low BB (335mm and 37.5mm drop) and you’ve got a combo that’s ready to haul into every pocket turn and launch out the other side.

Grips

Select:

Single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring.  A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last 38mm (1.5”) of the grip, effectively clamping onto the end of the bar to eliminate twisting.

Flared closed end for comfort, feel and security.  8mm (0.3”) of rubber with a subtle mushroom profile on the tip resists scuffing, provides comfort and adds an intuitive feel for the bar end.  (We also found it adds a healthy dose of forgiveness when clipping trees on tight trails!)

Long grip length and waffle knurl for maximum control.  A generous 125mm (4.9”) grip length (excluding lock-ring) allows plenty of room to reposition hands on differing terrain and long rides.  The moto-knurl pattern gives just the right balance of feel and grip in all conditions.

Headset

Select:

Legendary Hope headset - UK made with stainless bearings and inclides Hope Head Doctor top cap assemby.

Rubber sealed cartridge type, stainless steel bearings and additional 'O' ring seals in the cups to ensure years of maintenance free running. It's strong enough for downhill use, yet still light enough for cross-country. Bearing Type: Sealed stainless steel cartridge type. Cups: 2014 aluminium.

Seatpost

Select:

The Ascend Seatpost is only compatible with bikes that can use an internally routed dropper. (Please note that it cannot be converted to external cable actuated.)The seatpost is cable actuated at the bottom of the post via a linkage mechanism which eliminates cable pull/movement, to ensure consistent performance time and time again.

The ergonomic shifter style remote lever is designed to be run where your front shifter would normally sit. This means that the Ascend Dropper is ideally suited for those using a 1x chain ring set up; without a front derailleur. However, a paddle style shifter is available aftermarket for those who want to use the Ascend dropper post with a front derailleur and shifter.

The Ascend Dropper seatpost sets new standards for reliability and performance at a fantastic price point.

Features:

  • Material: AL7075-T651; Finish: Sand Blasted and Hard Anodised Black
  • Bar mounted shifter style remote lever and Cable operated internal routing
  • Linkage mechanism eliminates any outer cable pull
  • Zero Offset one piece head/upper shaft with micro adjust clamp
  • Diameter: 30.9mm or 31.6mm; Length: 498mm; Travel: 170mm
  • Rider Weight: Min: 50-55kg; Max: 120kg
  • Weight (31.6mm- exc cable and shifter): 595g
  • Cable Length: 1.5m
  • Warranty: 2 Years
  • Remote Adjuster: Yes

Saddle

Select:

The Volt is the next evolution in WTB saddles. Thin Line style compact padding borrowed from the Silverado and Devo compliment subtle curves and a melange of popular features from several of our saddles. A slight whale tail and gentle drop to the nose provide something to push against while not limiting riders to one seating position. This saddle has enough padding for all day riding comfort yet scant enough weights for XC competition gaining it endless acclaim and popularity among riders.
