The Tallboy cuts a whole new swath across the trail bike landscape.
The Tallboy muddles the line between XC and trail with 110mm of rear wheel travel, paired with a 120mm fork, and fast-rolling 29er wheels.
“Trail country” in pedigree, the Tallboy climbs almost as well as an XC bike, but shows its true colors when the trail turns downward.
On paper, 110mm of travel might seem like it’ll get overwhelmed on technical trails, but nobody rides on paper. Its short-travel chassis gives it scalpel-like handling with a genuine all-around trail capability.
