Origins of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) are still largely unknown. In particular, the “2nd knee” around 1017 eV could be related to a transition of origins from the galactic to extra-galactic sources. In this scenario, one would expect the large-scale anisotropies of UHECRs to change over the 2nd knee region. We search for large-scale anisotropies using data taken from surface detector (SD) arrays of the Telescope Array experiment (TA), the largest cosmic-ray detector in the northern hemisphere, and from its low energy extension, the Telescope Array Low-energy Extension (TALE). In this contribution, we report on preliminary results in the search for the large-scale cosmic-ray anisotropies with 11-years TA SD and two-years TALE SD data.
