What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard richens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. A Fox Rhythm fork and RockShox Monarch RT shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM's Level T brakes paired with 180mm rotors get the job done effectively. For extra weight reduction, Santa Cruz designed the aluminum-framed Bronson with an integrated headset and nixed ISCG tabs—otherwise, it includes all the features you'd find on the higher-level carbon frames to make an affordable, strong package for bagging epic trails.
