Plays every role
Santa Cruz's most notorious thriller. The Bronson is ready for action no matter what the role. With the most versatile personality in Santa Cruz's lineup, each version has redefined the expectations of a 150mm bike. The Bronson can do it all: it hunts at full throttle over every trail and styles with style even over big jumps.
The new damper mount on the lower VPP link opens up greater possibilities for fast shots, good support in the mid-range of travel and a barely perceptible bottom-out. It's as if we had a set of afterburners bolted to our most powerful all-round bike.
With 150 mm VPP travel on 27.5" wheels, the Bronson rides continuously on the fine line between agility and stability. 160 mm in the front and the 65° steering angle ensure superior handling. The redesigned, one-piece rear triangle ensures that the rear wheel always stays in the right place, no matter how wild the action.
There's plenty of room to fit up to 2.8-inch tyres on Plus rims. Santa Cruz offer equipment options for "normal" 27.5" wheels and Plus tyres with 2.6" width. For us, these are the perfect compromise between the Velcro-like traction of Plus tyres and the familiar, reliable feel of standard width tyres.
Its versatility makes it the first choice for those looking for a reliable bike to conquer unknown and wild trails with ease.
