Have you seen the video of Greg Minnaar supposedly missing the start of a Cape Epic stage and deciding to rather just go free-riding on the new Santa Cruz Tallboy 3? If not scan the QR Code and check it out, right now. If you have, watch it again anyway, because it’s pure class.
We were a little worried that Santa Cruz might be replacing the do-it-all Tallboy platform entirely but fortunately that’s not the case. The new Tallboy 3 is an updated version of the original with 110mm of VPP travel, a longer reach and shorter chainstays than the Tallboy 2. It’s available with 29er or 27.5+ wheels meaning either a 120mm or 130mm fork. Expect to see it flying past you on the trails and looking stylish in local bike shops from September onwards.
