Based in the riding mecca of Santa Cruz, California, Santa Cruz Bicycles meticulously designs and develops some of the best-riding, most-fun bicycles money can buy. Using only the finest materials and manufacturing standards, Santa Cruz is at the pinnacle of technology, value and riding enjoyment.
Santa Cruz has a relatively new bike, seemingly designed for our terrain. The Tallboy Carbon is one of the lightest, best-riding twenty-niners available. The 100 mm travel Tallboy is plush yet responsive with compact 17.5" chainstays and a more stable 71 degree head angle. The newly redesigned Virutal Pivot Point suspension smooths the spring rate for more active early travel. The axle path allows the rear wheel to move back through the travel path making it even easier to keep your momentum in rock gardens.
With 29" wheels finding greater acceptance amongst more and more riders, it was only a matter of time before some of those riders began pushing their boundaries and demanding a bike that was designed for more brutal terrain. The new Tallboy LT is our offering to those riders: aggressive geometry, 135mm of VPP suspension travel, adjustable angular contact lower pivot bearings with recessed grease ports, custom drawn aluminum tubing, tapered head tube, and ISCG05 mounts. Maintaining the climb - happy pedaling characteristics of all our VPP bikes, the Tallboy LT takes the go - anywhere ethos of the original Tallboy and brings along a whole lot more game when the trail points downward and gets steep and chunky. It's a new breed of big - wheeled trail bike.
Now Comes The Anihilator! SANTA CRUZ BRONSON ! 150mm of travel in a 27.5" platform.
Bronson is not some rehashed 27.5" tribute act to anything else in our range. It stands alone as testament to the years of designing and refining at our old Bronson Street facility.
