With kick-ass lower-link VPP™ suspension, a streamlined design, the typical Santa Cruz refinement, and rather radical geometry, the Tallboy is a genre bending folk hero. 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, forward thinking geometery and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as our longest travel bikes it feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does getting extreme across the countryside.
