1. When Logan Peat and Josh Bryceland rolled into Santa Cruz on their Jackals, we rolled up in a 1949 GM 4101 Union Pacific Streamliner to show them around.

    Still using its original super-charged two-stroke straight-six Detroit Diesel power plant connected to a Spicer 4-speed manual transmission, the "Crazy Train" is the last running coach of ten, made for ferrying passengers from Union Pacific's Los Angeles terminal in the fifties and sixties.

    Still using unique sliding dropouts to accommodate gears or single speeds, connected to the frame via compact chainstays on a super-strong asymmetrical yoke, the Jackal was made for ferrying passengers over dirt jumps, street obstacles, amusement parks and anything else you might encounter on a rampage around town.

  2. Remember that Photo Of The Day from Crankworx of the guy on a scooter towing a Santa Cruz? That was no stunt... just one of our Test Ride Posse going about their business.

    Meet Craig Wilson and Jason Tarbet. These guys know how stuff works, and tell us when it don't.

    Simple Machines #2 follows Craig on a day in his life. The day he got the new Heckler.

    150mm of single pivot travel and 27.5" wheels on a Bronson-esque geometry, the Heckler's now freakishly good.

  3. Sharing the same mega-agile geometry as the Solo, the all new Bantam punches way above its weight for a trail bike in this category.

    With 125mm of single-pivot travel and 27.5" wheels, it's a refreshingly simple machine.

    The kind of machine that inspires people like Henry O'Donnell to build rad trails for all of us... way way out in the Lakes Basin area of California.

  4. Steve Peat takes his new Santa Cruz 5010 into the wilds of Scotland.

    5010 pushes further into the realms of 27.5" wheel size possibilities. Developed using what we learned from Bronson, it takes the design platform in a different direction.

    The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give 5010 its snappy, nimble, ride.

    A 68 degree head angle adds climbing agility into the equation, whilst a 5lb carbon frame weight define 5010 as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.  

    Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, 5010 goes where no bike has gone before.

    This film was a collaborative project between Santa Cruz, The Baller Consultancy, CutMedia and Visit Scotland.

  5. Rob Roskopp and the team from Santa Cruz present the Tallboy 2.

    When Tallboy first launched in 2009, it wiped the floor with everything in its category.

    Most 29ers of the time had the geometry and suspension performance of an economy airline seat, and the industry knew it. Tallboy was awarded “Bike of the Year” time after time, changing the perception of what a 29” wheel mountain bike was capable of.

    The geometry of Tallboy 2 remains true to the original.  However, we've fine-tuned the shock rate, improved pedaling efficiency, increased stiffness and reduced weight to redefine our most popular trail bike.
