Product Info

Having a versatile rig with enough muscle to get you down the sketchy stuff, while also getting you back up the mountain with juice to spare is a highly desired combo that used to be unheard of. With that said, one ride on the Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 A R1x Complete Mountain Bike and you might become a believer. A tailored 150 mm VPP® suspension yields ascending and descending performance like no Santa Cruz ever before. Refined, composed and durable thanks to its aluminum frame, the Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 A R1x Complete Mountain Bike presents a killer value on one of the most desirable bikes in the game.

Product Details


Aluminum Alloy FrameSanta Cruz continues to offer most of their models in aluminum because it delivers a rocker solid ride experience at a great price. All Santa Cruz VPP® aluminum bikes mirror the same geometry (and paint jobs) as their carbon siblings.

150 mm VPP® SuspensionVirtual Pivot Point (VPP®) is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. The beauty of VPP® suspension is that the short links allow Santa Cruz to create compact tidy suspension designs. Combine that with large diameter pivot axles running on angular contact bearings and you get the integrity, responsiveness and precision that Santa Cruz frames are famous for.

RockShox Monarch RTFeaturing silky smooth travel in a new lightweight design, Monarch floats through bumps even better than before, turning rugged trails into tire-gripping velvet. The chassis is lean while maintaining the durability and adjustability needed to bite off huge chunks of burly trail action and epic cross country.

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 1x11 X-HORIZON™ Rear DerailleurProvides 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.

SRAM XG-1150 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 the X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

Race Face Æffect CranksetThe Æffect crankset is designed to handle aggressive trail riding at XC crank weight, featuring the Cinch System with interchangeable spider options and the trusted 24mm EXI interface spindle, the Æffect is a rock solid crankset for the modern XC and trail rider.


SRAM Level T BrakesLevel 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 DHR2 TR | Rear TireThe Minion DHR II is a complete redesign. Acceleration, cornering and braking have all been improved. The shoulder knobs were borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF and then beefed up to handle duty as a rear tire. The center tread has been heavily ramped and siped to roll fast and track straight under braking. Pair the DHR II with the Minion DHF for the ultimate aggressive riding combo.

Race Face AR27 RimsBuilt from 6061 aluminum and made with the most modern production methods that create a super strong sidewall with less material, you know these wheels mean business. Lightweight designed for the all mountain application and you can shed even more weight by setting these up tubeless. Less weight equals more ride time and more fun.

Stan's Sealant (Already Tubeless!)Award winning tire sealant from the folks that invented tubeless conversion and redefined puncture protection.
