2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 C R1xRun it 275+ or 29er, the choice is yours.

Pictured is the 2017 Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 C R1x, built as a 29er. Currently in stock we have a size large in yellow, or sizes medium and XL in grey in the R1x build kit.

This all new Tallboy can be run either 275+ or 29. Geometry has a 68 degree head angle, a longer reach and shorter chainstays round out the Tallboy's fun geometry. A flip chip on the upper link ensures the geometry remains consistent through a full range of sizes (S-XXL) or fork sizes (for both wheel size options).

The C-level carbon frame uses a slightly heavier, less-expensive grade of carbon fiber to achieve the same strength, stiffness, and durability you'll find in the CC-level frames, but there's a bit more of the material to achieve it - resulting in only a 280 gram increase in frame weight, and a big cost savings.

TALLBOY FEATURES:

  • 110mm VPP™ Suspension
  • 120mm fork for 29" kits/130mm fork for 27.5+ configurations
  • 148mm Rear Axle Spacing
