Santa Cruz Tallboy

"This'll be our third carbon fiber bike, and the more time we spend working with the material, the more we are able to push into new definitions of stiffness and strength.
Tapered head tubes, massive but super light chainstays and rear triangles, absolutely rock solid frames, and they're still around two pounds lighter than most of the similarly targeted competition. Super stiff, super strong, super snappy."

"The Tallboy will have 100mm of travel. The lower link features the same 15mm aluminium pivot axles, titanium hardware, angular contact bearings, grease ports, durability and ease of maintenance as found on our Blur LT.

"There's also a carbon fibre upper link, with the same trick hardware and angular contact bearings on the big axle. Clean, neutral pedaling without bob or feedback, and plush bump eating suspension performance across the board."
