Tallboy 29 Carbon CC X01 Eagle Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Cross country and short travel rides sometimes get a bad rep, but when it comes to versatility, pedal-ability, and all out fun, we'd wager that they're damn near impossible to beat -- and last time we checked, they've never slowed us down from having a berm-blasting good time.

With all new geometry that blurs the line between cross-country and backcountry, deeper travel than before, and a new lower-link VPP suspension design that takes queues from its deeper travel brethren, the Tallboy is all the more ready to party, eat up rock gardens, soar up climbs, and rocket back to the bottom to do it again. And if the new geometry isn't enough, Santa Cruz spec's this particular build with a slew of cherry-picked SRAM X01 Eagle components to offer you a massive 500% gear range to tackle days that boost up intense amounts of elevation, and soar down lofty rollers and banked berms on the descent, and a slick set of light and stiff Reserve carbon hoops to power you up punchy climbs with snappy, instantaneous power.. We suppose that with Santa Cruz's Bronson and Hightower getting makeovers in the suspension department, we shouldn't be all that surprised to see tweaks to the Tallboy went in the same direction. The new Tallboy follows the trends of its deeper-travel siblings, moving the VPP suspension down to a lower-link that offers improved stabilization in the roughest terrain, while an extra 10mm of travel helps soak up additional rocks and roots that the previous Tallboy would have shied away from. This makes the new ride more confident than ever, ready for bigger trails, rutted out lines, brakes bumps galore, and even turning the odd set of rollers into doubles -- but not at the cost of climbing. The new suspension is designed with the same engineering principles as the brand's longest travel bikes, making it just as ..
