SANTA CRUZ TALLBOY
The Tallboy has earned a loyal following amongst those who seek a go-to bike that will hold up to hot laps or long days in the saddle harvesting the best trails. The VPP suspension on the Tallboy combines pedaling efficiency and all-out bump-chomping prowess. If ever there was a gravity riders’ XC bike, the Tallboy is it.
Cutthroat is Salsa’s ultra-endurance mixed surface bike inspired by the Tour Divide bikepacking race. It’s designed and built to cover long distances with speed and comfort. The Cutthroat name may hint at the ferocity of the competition on the Tour Divide, but the Cutthroat Trout is also the state fish for all the U.S. states that the Tour Divide passes through.
