Product Info

Building upon the well-deserved hype of the original Bronson (1.0), the Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.1 CC X01 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! Their lightest and smoothest CC frame is built out with quickly-adaptable Fox front/rear suspension, a SRAM X01 Eagle™ 1x12 drivetrain, and a RockShox Reverb remote-actuated dropper seatpost. If you're looking for a bike that checks all the boxes in a variety of conditions, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.1 CC X01 Complete Mountain Bike may very well be your best bet!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

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 Elite DPX ShockThe ultimate trail shock: X2 small bump sensitivity meets an improved DPS adjustment range. Recirculating oil damper design gives riders better control. One-piece EVOL air sleeve improves responsiveness and sensitivity. Three position lever with adjustable Open mode offers 10 clicks to fine-tune compression.

Minor 2.1 Frame UpdateFront derailleur hanger removed from frame for a 20-30 gram weight saving. Frame and geo otherwise unchanged.

Carbon CC FrameSanta Cruz's highest grade CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Santa Cruz is also able to truly integrate the shock mounts, pivot mounts, dropouts and disc brake tabs into the structure, using all uni-directional carbon plies. The shock mount isn't merely riveted or bonded on after curing, but is an integrated part of the fiber lay-up. This makes Santa Cruz's carbon frames incredibly strong and able to absorb impact better than any other frame they've tested.

Fork

Fox 36 Performance EliteMore than an enduro race fork. Now featuring an EVOL air spring and updated upper tubes for unparalleled small bump sensitivity, the 36 is even smoother than before. Performance Elite forks retain the same adjustments, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized upper tubes instead of Genuine Kashima Coat.

Drive Train

SRAM X01 Eagle™ DrivetrainThe X01 Eagle™ drivetrain signals an exciting new era of freedom and the next level of uncompromising performance for enduro racers and aggressive trail riders. Watching the world’s best racers use their parts to battle against nature, physics and time itself, has inspired SRAM to supply them with the most advanced tools we can develop. X01 Eagle™ takes everything you love about SRAM's pioneering 1x drivetrains and increases its wear life, toughness, precision, smooth and silent operation. Add to that the 10- to 50-tooth, 12-speed, Eagle™ cassette, and you have a range of gears that gives you the freedom to enjoy the benefit of 1x in any terrain, any location and at any speed. X01 Eagle™ is drivetrain freedom—how you exploit it is up to you.

Brakes

SRAM Guide RSC Hydraulic Disc BrakesetThe new SRAM Guide RSC is packed with ride-enhancing performance that makes every new trail a trusted old friend. SRAM started from scratch to create the perfect combination of braking reliability and control. Brand-new SwingLink™ technology provides more power, silky-smooth modulation, less deadband and better lever-feel than you’ve ever experienced. Steep-line confidence. Deep-corner dominance. Ride every trail like you own it. KNOW YOU CAN. Now featuring the World Championship-winning S4 caliper with Bleeding Edge™ and Heat Shield technologies.

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

RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper SeatpostDon’t let its familiar good looks fool you—Reverb is a whole new weapon. Its internals have been completely re-engineered to improve on its already legendary performance and to offer enhanced reliability: all the smallest details, down to the single seal, have been re-evaluated and updated to pass the hardest and longest durability tests. Additional bushing overlap also improves performance over time. This is the brand-new Reverb, engineered for the next-generation mountain biker.
