Product Info

The Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson CC X01 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 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.

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 Ultimate Rear ShockDesigned for the latest hard-hitting enduro and trail bikes, Super Deluxe Ultimate features the ride-tuning abilities of an air spring with both compression and rebound adjustment to fine tune to any trail. With a solid threshold adjustment for pedaling performance and Maxima Plush fluid for a buttery smooth feel, riders can now easily dial in a podium-worthy ride.

Bottle Cage MountWithin the front triangle, fits piggyback shocks.

27.5 / 27.5+ Wheel ClearancesClearance for up to 2.8-inch tires.

Single Grease Port on Lower Link for Swift and Easy Maintenance

Integrated Flip Chip for High/Low Setting Adjustment

Molded Rubber Swingarm and Downtube Protection

Fork

Fox 36 Float FactoryWith Kashima-coated stanchions, lower leg pressure bleeders, a floating axle, and the famous GRIP2 damper, these forks are straight out of the EWS pits. Smooth, tuneable, and definitely "factory," there's no better fork on the planet.

Fork AdjustmentsAir Spring Pressure, High-Speed Compression and Rebound Adjust (8-Clicks), Low-Speed Compression and Rebound Adjust (16-Clicks)

VVC (Variable Valve Control)VVC is a proprietary variable valve control system that allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance. VVC achieves with the twist of a knob what typically requires the time consuming and complicated task of completely disassembling and reassembling the fork.

Drive Train

SRAM X01 Eagle™The 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 Code RSC BrakesetCode dominates the World Cup — and every downhill trail worth its salt. In the gravity world, this is the pinnacle of performance, power and control. SRAM's famous big brakes have 4-piston calipers, a large reservoir, and fistfuls of power.

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.

Wheelset

Race Face ARC Offset 30 27.5" Rims Laced to DT Swiss 350 HubsDurable and light, with an unmistakeable trail feel. The ARC Offset 30 paired with DT Swiss 350s is the perfect platform for strong riders pushing their limits.

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 TireA real rider's tire choice, these Minions bring a mix of rolling resistance, wear, and performance that can't be beat.

Additional Features

Santa Cruz Carbon HandlebarDesigned and made exclusively by Santa Cruz, using everything they've learned from creating World Championship winning carbon bicycles. Each bar has a dialed amount of stiffness, keeping vibration in check and minimizing arm fatigue. Discrete markers take the pain out of set-up alignments and stealth branding keeps things class.

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.
