£4319.00 – Santa Cruz Bronson C R MX Mountain Bike 2023 Matte Black
When Santa Cruz dropped the Bronson on the world in 2013 we caught many people with their pants around their ankles. 27.5-inch wheels were the new kid on the block and people weren’t ready for a disruptive little middle child to muscle its way into the household. The Bronson was among the first of its kind to adopt the in-betweener wheel size and the timing was just right to make it infamous.Eight years later, the fourth generation Bronson comes in swinging with mixed wheels. It’s something that our other naughty kids, the Syndicate, have been playing with for a while on the V10s and Bullit eBikes. The big wheel up front gives the Bronson more traction (bigger contact patch and more rollover) which results in more confidence for the rider, while the BB to axle drop of the smaller, 27.5 rear wheel makes it easier to drop a shoulder into a late turn or lift the front wheel up and over obstacles.The Santacruz demo crew have a saying, ‘If in doubt, take a Bronson out.’ It’s not that it’s the most versatile or anything cliché like that, it just has always had the biggest personality of any bike they build. Now the mid-travel and MX wheels mean it’s up for anything and urges a wider array of riders to get into more trouble. The good kind of trouble. With 150mm of travel and a leverage curve similar to the Hightower, it has enough to go deep on any landing and the VPP™ suspension design makes sure that there’s no wasted energy when heading back up for another go.Proportional chainstays set the Bronson up for a wide range of rider sizes (they offer five sizes from XS to XL), while protective armour (downtube and shuttle pad), internal cables, and a bottle cage inside the front triangle mean that this wild child does have table manners.A bike like the Bronson is meant to play rough-and-tumble, and as a result, should also be ready to rumble (try not to sing the song!). thyey build their bikes to last, ready for a rider to put their bike to the test in the real world, over and over again. This is why they build something beyond the standards. This is why they proudly wave the flag of lifetime warranty and have done so for their, lifetime. it goes without saying, for the existence of the bike, they will provide legendary rider support, which means all the human help and tech details are right at a rider’s fingertips.MIXED WHEELS – The best of both worldsCONFIDENCE & RESPONSEGreat front end traction, quicker to respond to rear wheel inputs. Also optimized chainstay length and more butt clearance.BEST FORRiders who seeking composure of 29er but appreciate quick handling, and those who love it steep.BEST ATKeeping the front end trucking smoothly while still retaining an ability to turn in quicklyRefined VPPImproved VPP suspensionMore experience = further refinement.Next generation VPP uses a longer stroke shock for lower overall leverage while still offering a progressive, linear rate. Lowerleverage makes for a familiar, but more composed evolution of VPP. Lower instant center and anti-squat makes for less chain influence on the suspension: less pedal feedback.Lifetime WarrantyLIFETIME WARRANTYOn Santa Cruz and Juliana frames, pivot bearings, and Reserve carbon rimsREAL SUPPORTFrom real riders like Kyle (pictured) of the Santa Cruz Rider Support team, empowered to do what it takes to keep our bikes rolling.No BSEasy to work on, easy to find parts for, built tolast.Santa Cruz Bronson Mountain Bike Key Features27.5” rear/ 29” front wheel150mm travel/ 160mm forkC and CC carbonSize specific chainstaysRefined VPP SuspensionSizes XS-XLLifetime Warranty
