Santa Cruz Tallboy 5 S Mountain Bike

Labelled as 'the downhiller's XC bike', the Santa Cruz Tallboy C S Mountain Bike is a do-everything machine that's efficient on the climbs, descends like longer travel bikes and suits those looking to spend hours on the trails. Minor updates to its predecessor bring updated kinematics and geometry, and the inclusion of Glovebox storage, with a fitted Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, so you can keep your tools to hand.

130mm and 120mm travel, front and rear respectively, help soak up hard hits, and VPP™ suspension balances pedalling efficiency and bump absorption perfectly. The bike offers predictable handling and a responsive and energetic ride, while anti-squat has been reduced for improved small bump sensitivity and square-edge compliance. Proportional Geometry matches the chainstay length and seat angle to frame size, so ride feel and handling are balanced across the range. 

SRAM GX Eagle components in a 1x12-speed configuration provide precision shifting and the gear range is wide. G2 R hydraulic disc brakes allow you to hit fast, technical descents with confidence-inspiring stopping power, while the fast-rolling 29" wheels are fitted with Maxxis Dissector and Rekon tyres that are ideal for dry, loose terrains.


  • Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon C frame, 120mm travel
  • FOX 34 Float Performance fork, 130mm travel
  • FOX Float Performance DPS shock
  • The highly-refined VPP™ suspension on the Tallboy combines pedalling efficiency and all-out bump-chomping prowess
  • Proportional Geometry and frame stiffness tune - Chainstay length and seat angle are matched to the frame size (STA steepens and rear centre grows as frame size increases) so that every rider, no matter what height, gets the same balance of geometry and handling characteristics
  • Glovebox in the downtube comes with a fitted Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, tailored for the frame to keep your tools close to hand
  • SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain and SRAM G2 R hydraulic disc brakes
  • 29" wheels and Maxxis Dissector/Rekon tubeless-ready tyres
  • RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post
