This bike goes wherever you tell it to, whether it's a delicate line through wet roots or an eyes-closed charge down a steep chute. Oh, and it'll pedal all day long too. This Bronson's not exactly a sleeper (it is, after all, a Santa Cruz), but it'll surprise you!

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Aluminum Frame

Frame Update 3.0This iteration of the Bronson features a revised VPP® suspension with a new lower-link mounted shock. This yields a smoother pedaling platform, greater bottom out resistance, and a supportive mid-stroke. Add to this a mildly slacker head angle, slightly steeper seat angle and a longer reach to make the Bronson more versatile than ever.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select Rear ShockSuper Deluxe Select is built for the latest breed of hard hitting enduro and trail bikes. Offering the ride control you need paired with a user-friendly threshold adjustment all rolled into a great high performance-to-value package. They even threw in Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction and silence noise.
