Product Info

When you think Santa Cruz you may think of sun and surf, or maybe a blonde babe driving a red Corvette; but Santa Cruz has been home to some seriously rad bike builders for many years. The newly redesigned Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 C S Complete Mountain Bike is an Enduro rider's dream. A specifically tuned VPP® suspension linkage gets you up with ease and down with speed. The lower link has been discretely nuzzled into the frame above the bottom bracket to protect it from any large objects you will likely be sending over. A re-positioned upper link in the top tube makes for a more rigid and responsive frame, so you can smash corners like the Incredible Hulk. Saddle up the revamped Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 C S Complete Mountain Bike for an all around exciting, pedal friendly ride.

Product Details


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.

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.

Rock Shox Pike RC Solo AirThe new-school all-mountain and enduro riders’ weapon of choice. It has received critical acclaim by the global mountain-bike media. It came out of the box and marched its way to an Enduro World Series overall title. And with good reason. Pike was engineered to provide the plushest, most high-performance ride quality imaginable. Its Charger Damper™ with Rapid Recovery™ keeps you riding high in the travel, where the feel is plushest, and maintains your bike’s natural geometry. Its stiffness to weight to travel ratios are unbeatable, meaning you get a lot more from a lot less. Better control from fewer and more intuitive rider inputs allow you to charge harder. Which equals time and energy for more laps. If all-mountain riding and enduro racing is how you describe a good day in the saddle, then Pike should be on your ride.

SRAM GX ShiftersGet sharp, dependable shifting with the SRAM GX X-ACTUATION™ trigger shifter. Built for precise and swift shifting across SRAM's wide range 11-speed cassette, the GX trigger shifter brings championship technology to everyone.

SRAM GX 11-Speed Rear DerailleurLeveraging the legendary history of SRAM shifting, the GX 1x11 rear derailleur provides incredible shifting speed and precision. X-ACTUATION™ technology eliminates slop and shifting variation. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing terrain. 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.

SRAM Guide R BrakesetWhat’s it going to take to ride that line? It’s steep. It’s rocky. You’ve passed it a hundred times. But not this time. With the all-new SRAM Guide R, you have the power. Proven 4-piston calipers give you smooth, one-finger control. Features like Reach Adjust let you dial it in just right. And Guide perfectly complements other SRAM components and gives you flawless performance on every ride. 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 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.
