You showed up to the starting line to win, which means you showed up on Santa Cruz's Tallboy C. The heart of this trail ripper is the monocoque carbon frame with VPP suspension technology, not to mention 100mm of Fox travel to soak up chatter and chunder. Dive into the corners and you'll see just how stiff and responsive the Tallboy is. 29-inch WTB Frequency Team rims wrapped in Maxxis Ikon tires steamroll rocks and roots, yet give you plenty of nimble steering in tricky tech. You'll find the right gear for those steep climbs as well as plenty of range for pushing the limits downhill with a legendary Shimano XT drivetrain, and XT brakes modulate with heaps of power. The Tallboy's topped off with stellar Easton components like an EC70 bar and EA70 stem, not to mention an always-eye-catching Thomson seatpost, so you get a tall order of awesome for the race course or the Saturday ride with friends.
