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 Santa Cruz Bronson is probably the most talked about bike on the planet right now. Launched with a huge fanfare, and the likes of Steve Pete and Cedric Gracia singing its virtues, it created an internet buzz that we haven’t seen for a while. Pre-orders stacked up and for a while the bikes were as rare as rocking horse...

At 18 years old the Heckler is finally allowed into the pub for a beer in the UK, obviously it would be foolish to show up not in fashion and so the team at Santa Cruz have kitted it out with 27.5 inch wheels and some geometry changes to keep it bang up-to-date. At the heart of the bike is...

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...

Santa Cruz is a company with a fabulous heritage and an extensive line up of much loved and desired bikes. When they announced not only two new bikes, but new bikes sporting a new suspension system to their line up we got all excited. The APP system is Santa Cruz’s way of offering a bike that rides similar to their...

Santa Cruz are head and shoulders above the crowd at the moment, yes they are quite literally Tallboy… I’ll get my coat! They do however, seem to be producing some of the very best bikes in several categories right now and their Tallboy C has been getting some pretty rave reviews.

We did a lot of testing this autumn. We rode the 4060 ST from SCOR and tried the Mullet Santa Cruz Bronson. We got our hands on Bold’s art object the Linkin 135 and gave CUBE’s Danny Hart replica the Two15 SLT a test. On components we review Magura’s MT7 Pro’s, Suntours Durolux forks, IndustryNine Enduro 306 V3 wheels, Riding Culture jeans, Enve M6 bar/stem combo and more!
