Tallboy Carbon 27.5+ S Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon S 27. 5+ complete mountain bike is arguably an ideal intersection of impeccable handling and sensational grip. Built with components that offer no-nonsense reliability, this machine is more than capable of taking you on memorable rides in big terrain every ride-able weekend of the year. Many of you will remember the commotion that the original Tallboy caused. Its lively attitude immediately dispelled a mountain of preconceived notions about how 29-inch wheels were supposed to handle.

The slightly smaller 27. 5+ wheels pair with the "high" setting, allowing for similar clearance between the bottom bracket and the ground. The upshot is headache-free swaps between wheel sizes, which gives you more options than ever when you hit the trail. The Tallboy generates 110mm of travel through the latest version of Santa Cruz's VPP technology. As with all VPP bikes, the Tallboy's counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating unwanted bobbing under power. This being the latest iteration of VPP, it's tuned to provide more midstroke support than previous generations, giving the rider a better feel for the terrain, and a livelier ride feel.
