Santa Cruz Bicycles Tallboy CC X01

Santa Cruz is probably best known for its iconic Syndicate Team and V-10 downhill machine. Still, their offering of high end XC, enduro and all mountain bikes can compete with the biggest brands in the industry. We took the Hightower for a spin during the Backside Bikes test day in Verbier, Switzerland. With such a short time on the bike,…

Out of the box this is one seriously nice looking bit of kit, although it comes with a fairly chunky price tag. You would be forgiven for thinking this is just another re-launch of a bike with the bigger wheels treatment. However, given the hype surrounding the launch of this new bike I was keen to test the real differences.…

The Heckler has been part of the Santa Cruz heritage for 18 years, which is pretty substantial by any standards. Of course it has changed a lot in that time and in its current guise it represents a simple, single pivot suspension design with all-mountain geometry and travel at a very competitive price. New for this year is a tapered…

When they announced not only two new bikes, but new bikes sporting a new suspension system to their line up we got all excited.
