2022 Santa Cruz Bronson

Santa Cruz Bronson

The Right Bike, 99 Times Out of 100

The new 2022 mixed-wheel Santa Cruz Bronson extends its genre-spanning reach even further than its predecessors, taking the do-it-all 150mm to Mullet Town. With a 29er leading the way, it has mindblowing grip and smooth rollover juice, while the 27.5" rear wheel helps maintain the maneuverability and playful ride that makes the Bronson Santa Cruz's best selling bike - poppy and as loose as you like. Mountain biking rules, and the Bronson is one of the reasons why.

Carbon C & CC Frames

A minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

Lower-Link Mounted VPP® Suspension

VPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.
