The new Santa Cruz Tallboy blends big bike geometry with small bike travel: so is it a trail bike, an XC bike, or something else entirely?
Does the new Santa Cruz Hightower version have the same significance, or will it simply languish in the shadow of the Santa Cruz Megatower?
Is this new Santa Cruz Megatower a big wheel Nomad or something completely different? Here’s the low-down and our first ride review thoughts.
The Santa Cruz 5010 is the cult offering in Santa Cruz’s range. The 5010 remains a fun-focussed 130mm travel bike designed solely for 27.5in wheels.
The Santa Cruz Hightower LT uses their older style VPP configuration, with the shock tucked under the top tube and driven by the upper rocker link.
Hard not to love the Santa Cruz Nomad CC. It looks drop dead gorgeous, pedals better than most 140mm bikes but you have 170mm to get you out of trouble.
Santa Cruz Bronson has borrowed the Nomad’s new suspension layout, grown fatter wheels and longer geometry. Can it retain its Best Ever Trail Bike status?
The Santa Cruz Bronson CC is quite possibly the best 150mm travel trail bike we’ve ever tested.
