What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard sweetens 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 36 F150 Performance Elite fork and Fox Float Performance Elite DPX shock keep the tires planted when you need them, and SRAM Guide R brakes paired with 180mm rotors provide plenty of stopping power on point-and-shoot descents. For the Carbon C frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly different construction method to keep the cost down, but the stiffness, durability, and strength are identical to the top-level Carbon CC.
