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.

Why Oval Chainrings Work (from absoluteBLACK website):
Because a rider does not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. Oval rings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. Believe it (or not), but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring. With oval rings rear tire traction improves greatly on loose and slippery terrain. Smoother power delivery to your rear wheel means that you will be able to maintain better, constant cadence; get less stress on the joints (knees) and therefore be able to keep certain level of effort for longer.
