Pros Well-rounded, modern geometry, fun on a wide range of terrain, more capable than previous modelOutstanding all around performance, more capable on the descents than its predecessor, great climber, excellent buildExcellent climbing abilities, impressive downhill performance, high fun factor, tremendous build kitVery stable at speed, hard charging, amazing build, supportive pedal platform, great deep stroke supportLightweight, playful, well-rounded, modern geometry, solid component specification
Cons A little heavy for carbon, chattery over high frequency chopExpensive, still not a full-on enduro bike, a touch on the heavy sideExpensive, pivots came loose a few times during testingBuild tested is expensive, somewhat less maneuverable than previous version, can feel sluggish at lower speedsNot a brawler, Fox 34 fork can be overwhelmed
Bottom Line Capable, versatile, and hard-charging, the new Tallboy is a fresh take on Santa Cruz's shorter travel 29erThe best gets even better, and the V2 Ripmo is the best all-around trail bike we've ever testedA killer daily driver that delivers feathery climbing performance and well-rounded downhill performanceLonger, slacker, burlier, the redesigned Hightower is a hard charging 29-inch trail bikeThe new and improved Ibis Ripley is one of the best all around mid-travel trail bikes we've ever ridden
