Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson C R Complete Mountain Bike is a sick whip for downhill rippers everywhere. Thanks to Santa Cruz's excellent VPP Suspension system and a steeper seat tube angle, the Bronson climbs better than any 150mm travel ride has a right too. But obviously, the downhill is where it shines. It absolutely eats up anything in its path, and keeps you feeling glued to the ground in the tightest of corners. Tons of traction, almost impossible to bottom out, and still lightweight and maneuverable, the Bronson is the bike you've been looking for.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

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.

Carbon C FrameA 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® 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. This redesign mounts the shock lower on the bike, making for an even better ride quality.

RockShox Super Deluxe Select Rear ShockThe look and feel that you expect from the Super Deluxe family of shocks in a straightforward package. Now featuring Maxima Plush fluid, it's the perfect place to start honing in those riding skills.
