Designed for riders who are looking to explore a variety of trails and terrains, this bike features a high-quality aluminum frame and a range of components that deliver reliable performance on the trails.

The foundation of the Tallboy 4 AL D-kit is its aluminum frame. Constructed with precision and expertise, the aluminum frame offers a solid and durable platform for tackling rough trails. While it may not be as lightweight as a carbon frame, the aluminum construction provides strength and resilience, making it ideal for riders who want a sturdy and reliable bike.

The SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain is a dependable and efficient component that provides smooth shifting across its wide range of gears. The 12-speed drivetrain offers plenty of options for tackling steep climbs and maintaining speed on flat and rolling terrain. While it may not have all the high-end features of SRAM's higher-tier drivetrains, the SX Eagle drivetrain still delivers reliable performance and is a great option for riders on a budget.

The SRAM Level brakes offer reliable stopping power and modulation, ensuring that you can control your speed with confidence. With their hydraulic disc design and solid construction, these brakes provide consistent and powerful stopping performance, allowing you to navigate technical descents and challenging terrain with ease.

The RockShox Recon Rl fork with 130mm of travel provides a smooth and controlled ride on the front end. With its adjustable compression and rebound settings, the Recon Rl allows you to fine-tune the suspension to match the trail conditions and your riding style. It offers excellent bump absorption, helping to smooth out rough terrain and maintain traction for confident handling.

The FOX Float Performance DPS rear shock with 120mm of travel complements the front fork, providing balanced and responsive suspension performance. The Float Performance DPS shock offers adjustable compression and rebound settings, allowing you to optimize the rear suspension to suit your preferences and the trail conditions. It delivers a plush and controlled ride, enhancing traction and stability on descents and technical sections.

The VPP Suspension Platform is a hallmark feature of Santa Cruz bikes, and it plays a significant role in the performance of the Tallboy 4 AL D-kit. The VPP design offers a perfect balance between efficient pedaling and active bump absorption. It ensures that the bike remains stable and responsive under pedaling forces while providing excellent traction and control when encountering obstacles and rough terrain.

The SDG Tellis dropper post with a 31.6 diameter is a valuable addition that allows you to quickly adjust your saddle height on the fly. This feature is especially useful when transitioning between climbs and descents, as it enables you to optimize your riding position for maximum efficiency and control. The Tellis dropper post is reliable and smooth, offering seamless operation and enhancing your overall riding experience.

The WTB ST i25 29" rims paired with the wheelset provide a robust and durable platform for the Tallboy 4 AL D-kit. These rims offer a good balance between strength and weight, making them suitable for a variety of trail conditions. Paired with the wheelset, which features high-quality components and reliable DT Swiss 370 hubs, this combination delivers a reliable and efficient rolling performance on the trails.

The Maxxis Dissector tire in a 29"x2.4" size for the front and Maxxis Rekon tire in a 29"x2.4" size for the rear are designed to handle a range of trail conditions. The Dissector tire features an aggressive tread pattern that provides excellent traction and control in loose and unpredictable terrain, making it ideal for tackling technical sections and corners with confidence. The Rekon tire offers a fast-rolling design with good grip and durability, making it suitable for a variety of trail conditions. Both tires utilize Maxxis' 3C MaxxGrip and MaxxTerra compounds for optimal grip and puncture resistance.

The Cane Creek 10 IS headset ensures smooth and reliable steering performance. With its high-quality bearings and precision construction, the headset minimizes friction and allows for precise control and handling. It contributes to the bike's overall stability and responsiveness.

The SRAM DUB bottom bracket, with a 73mm English/BSA threaded design, provides efficient power transfer and durability. The wide bottom bracket offers increased stiffness and stability, allowing for optimal power transfer from the pedals to the drivetrain. It ensures that every pedal stroke translates into forward motion, enhancing the bike's acceleration and efficiency.
