Product Info

The downhiller's XC bike is back and better than ever! The Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy CC X01 Complete Mountain Bike has all the hallmarks of a Santa Cruz: aggressive geo, a pro-level parts build, and that lower-link VPP shock that'll give any bike an appreciable boost in downhill prowess. This CC carbon Tallboy really leaves nothing to wish for, with the highest quality components and a build quality that's second to none. As a 120mm bike that'll definitely win some pedaling contests, it's truly amazing how good this bike is in heavier terrain. The Tallboy is a marvel.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

Fox Float Factory DPS Rear Shock"Factory" says it all. These shocks are feature-packed and designed to exceed the demands of factory-level riders. With a slippery smooth and durable Kashima coating, lightweight airsleeve, and dual piston valve design, this is race tech for the rest of us.
