2023 Santa Cruz Tallboy 5 C

The Downhiller's XC Bike

The Tallboy has earned a loyal following amongst those who seek a go-to bike that will hold up to the relentless hammering of "power hour" hot laps or long days in the saddle harvesting the best trails. The highly-refined VPP™ suspension on the Tallboy combines pedaling efficiency and all-out bump-chomping prowess. If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it.

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz have a reputation for making some of the finest carbon fiber mountain bikes money can buy. It's well deserved. Their VPP Suspension system is neat, highly effective and tuneable allowing a different character to be designed into each model in the range, it's easy to look after too. Whilst their top of the line CC range has no expense spared, the same technology trickles down into the rest of the range at a more attainable price point. You're also covered by a lifetime warranty for complete piece of mind.
