Over the course of four generations, the Santa Cruz Tallboy has evolved from a twitchy cross-country rig into a stable and efficient trail bike that pushes the limits of what a 120mm travel bike can do. Santa Cruz calls it the ""gravity rider's XC bike,"" which makes sense given this bike is meant to cover ground as quickly as possible without shying away from the rowdiest of descents.

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.
