The 2021 120mm Tallboy takes a leap further into what short-travel bikes really are capable of. Sure, 10mm more travel might only seem like one small step--but coupled with a lower link-driven VPP suspension design this is one giant leap for the Tallboy. It's the kind of bike that makes you sprint while going up, along, over, or down due to the maximum efficiency of the VPP design and responsive, lightweight chassis. But because it shares the same engineering principles as Santa Cruz's longest travel bikes, the progressive lower link-mounted shock feels equally at home doing cross-country as it does in extreme-country. Paired with a 130mm fork the new Tallboy becomes ever more appealing to riders who like to open it up.
