The Downhillers XC Bike
The Tallboy 3 has been a Stif favourite since it first landed, improving it was always going to take something radical... and Santa Cruz have not disappointed. Introducing the brand new Tallboy 4.
Whilst the Tallboy 3 muddied the line between XC and Trail bikes, the new Tallboy makes its intentions crystal clear. A 10mm increase in travel, a lower-link driven VPP suspension platform and radical geometry paired with a burlier fork means the new Tallboy is here to shake up the trail bike world.
Everything we loved about the Tallboy 3 – the lightweight and super-nimble chassis and the ability to climb like a mountain goat – remain, but the Tallboy 4 now inspires the confidence to open up the brakes and send it way beyond what you think a trail bike should be capable of.
The lower-link driven VPP suspension is the first thing you’ll notice. With a progressive curve tuned to perfection, the Tallboy 4 provides radical traction and stability when climbing – whether it’s a long winch up a fire road or rocky, rooty technical steeps – you’ll be smashing PB’s all the way to the top. The Tallboy hasn’t forgotten it’s XC heritage at all.
Point the Tallboy back down the trail and the same VPP suspension provides incredible support and grip, as well as a bottomless feeling that’ll make you believe there’s much more than 120mm of travel at your disposal. Pair that suspension platform with the burly 130mm, short-offset fork, a generous front-center and 65.5° head angle and you’ve got yourself an absolute weapon of a trail bike.
A 65.5° head-angle may seem radical for a bike like the Tallboy, but that’s only if you believe a shorter travel bike should be ridden slower. The Tallboy is made for going fast – everywhere and anywhere.
