Product Info

Building upon the well-deserved hype of the original Bronson (1.0), the Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.0 A R Complete Mountain Bike boasts a completely new VPP® link arrangement that enhances lateral stiffness, better small bump sensitivity, and a more progressive mid-stroke. A refined geometry also yields a one-degree slacker 66° head tube angle and a shorter chainstay for an even more rally-ready rig! The tried and true durability of this bike's aluminum frame is built out with quickly-adapted Fox front/rear suspension, SRAM NX drivetrain components, and an RockShox Reverb remote-actuated dropper seatpost. An aggressively skewed and widely capable all-mountain rig doesn't need to cost as much as a new car, and the Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.0 A R Complete Mountain Bike proves it!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Aluminum Frame

150mm VPP® SuspensionVPP 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.

Fox Float Performance DPS ShockFox's highest performing inline shock gets refined with a lighter, one-piece EVOL air sleeve to improve responsiveness and sensitivity, an updated valve design to improve both rebound and compression flow, and a DPS damper with three positions to match any terrain. FLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

Drive Train

SRAM NX 11-Speed ShifterSRAM NX trigger shifter with X-ACTUATION™ technology gives you sharp, dependable shifting. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the NX trigger shifter brings industry changing technology to everyone.

SRAM NX 11-Speed Rear DerailleurThe SRAM NX X-HORIZON™ rear derailleur provides the same smooth, reliable shifting action as XX1—from the larger upper pulley offset to the 12-tooth X-SYNC™ pulley wheels. By eliminating unwanted chain movement, X-HORIZON™ shifts faster, puts an end to ghost shifting and reduces shift force and chain slap. And with CAGE LOCK™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.

Race Face Æffect CranksetThe Æffect crankset is designed to handle aggressive trail riding at a XC crank weight and attractive pricepoint. Featuring the Cinch System with its interchangeable spider options and Race Face's trusted 24mm EXI interface spindle, the Æffect is a rock solid crankset for today's XC and trail riders.

SRAM XG1150 CS 10-42T CassetteFULL PIN™ technology uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42t gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design similar to our X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Brakes

SRAM Level T BrakesetLevel T capitalizes on the same trail-taming brake technology that conquered the 2015 World Mountain Bike Championships, to deliver a powerful and consistent XC and trail-optimized brake set that keeps your capital in the bank. This budget-minded, MatchMaker™ compatible brake set provides all the power of its siblings, keeping you in complete control.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Minion DHF | Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Minion DHR II | Rear TireThe trail version of the Maxxis Minion DHR II features the same tread pattern as its downhill counterpart, but uses a single-ply casing to reduce weight. With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped knobs to improve acceleration and sipes to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control. Pair it with a Minion DHF up front for the ultimate aggressive trail riding tire combo!

Additional Features

Race Face Æffect Dropper SeatpostA budget friendly but rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminum makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits. Internal cable routing compatible for modern frame design.
